Important School Choice Information

School Choice Information This Spring

We would like to share information about school selection for next year. In particular, there are important deadlines for families with incoming Kindergarteners and families with current 5th graders. 


There is one important point for all of our families in Kindergarten through 4th grade. Your child has a spot at our school as long as you wish to remain. If you move or live outside of Area F, you will have to provide your own transportation. 


The enrollment deadline for the 2020-2021 school year is February 28, 2020. Even if an older sibling is enrolled at Horace Mann School, you still have to do an application for any incoming Kindergarteners. For the last 3 years, everyone who has wanted to be enrolled in Kindergarten has received a spot. We have not had a waiting list.


Current 5th graders who reside in Saint Paul have a reserved spot at a middle school depending on your address. If you are interested in a different school or live outside Saint Paul, you will have to complete an application by February 28, 2020.


On January 23, prospective families can come for our Open House from 5:00-6:30pm. Please let your friends and neighbors know about our great school. If they prefer, we will also have a booth at the Saint Paul Public Schools Choice Fair on Saturday, January 25 at the Union Depot from 9:30am-2:00pm. They can visit with staff and parents from all of the schools. Finally, we encourage all prospective families to sign up for a tour during the school day. There is a link at the top of our website. Tours run through the middle of February.
