Mission and Vision

October 18, 2017

The School Site Council committee voted and unanimously approved the new Vision and Mission statements for HMS.

 

Our Vision:

The students of Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing are lifelong learners and innovative thinkers, fluent in both American Sign Language and English, who contribute to the world as self-determined Deaf individuals.

 

Our Mission:

Our dynamic dual language K-12 public education prepares students for postsecondary success by providing them equitable opportunities to engage with rigorous curriculum, by developing academic discourse in both American Sign Language and English, and by empowering students as Deaf individuals with diverse linguistic, ethnic, and cultural identities.
