Why choose Mann Magnet as your middle school?

Whether it be our rich history, diverse student population, unique offerings in the arts and science disciplines, competitive athletic programs, or our highly trained staff of educational professionals, Horace Mann Magnet offers something for everyone.

Our faculty understands the challenges that face middle-school students. The transition from elementary school can be intimidating. Conversely, preparing for high school can be equally as daunting. Large student populations, greater freedom of choice, and high expectations of academic acheivement are some of the issues that students will face.

Our mission is simple: create a culture that is conductive for learning, challenging our students, and letting them thrive. Our expectations are high. Our standards are unwaivering. If you choose Mann Magnet, you choose to follow the principles that we hold dear.

For more information or to schedule a school visit, please contact our administrative offices. We hope to see you soon.


I love watching children enjoy school. I love facilitating their learning journey. I truly believe Horace Mann Magnet is the best middle school in Arkansas. It is such an amazing benefit to a performing arts or science student. I believe Horace Mann Magnet gives every child confidence, success, problem-solving skills, leadership opportunities and instills a love of learning.       - Heather Jenkins, Mann Math Coach

I can remember back to when I first got an acceptance letter to Horace Mann. I didn’t know much about the school. The only thing I knew was that it had a great dance department.  Now that this is my third year here, I absolutely love this school. This school has great academic programs. The teachers here have very high standards for us, which helps us develop great work ethic and prepares us to succeed in whatever challenges we may encounter.      - Hailye Williams, student

We researched all of the LRSD middle schools for our twins and chose Mann Magnet because of the very challenging programs. Our twins are both in the Science Magnet and we feel strongly that they are receiving the instruction that they need and that theyll be prepared for high school.      - Sondra Thiher, parent

A message from Mann's Former Student Council President | 2011-2012

the student council president standing in front of a school mural  I believe what I say and do today has a profound   impact on the people around me. I hope others   believe it, too. We're tied together by purple and   gold here at Mann, and we've got to support each   other. Adversity will come; it's part of the human   condition. How we handle adversity, however, is   how our character will be defined. I choose to   support the efforts of my Bearcat family with the   confidence that they will do the same.  That, in   my mind, is what leadership is about.
