  • This school is not a good school for kids it is too violent and i think it is bad. And just the other day i got a letter sent home saying there has been an inappropriate relationship between a student and a teacher.I am worried that our safety is at risk and I am a student at Horace Mann Junior school.I demand to get another letter sent home saying who the persons were that had this sort of relationship.
    thank you
