About Us

Founded in 1903, The Record is Horace Mann School's weekly student newspaper. We publish every Friday during the academic year, offering news, features, arts, commentary, and sports coverage relating to the school community. The newspaper is committed to serving as an open forum for HM's students, families, alumni, faculty and staff.

The Record is led by an editorial board of 18 seniors in Horace Mann's Upper Division, with a staff totaling over 75 students. We have opportunities for students with a wide range of interests, including writing, reporting, photography, layout, art, and web design. The newspaper consistenly wins awards from scholastic journalism associations.

The Record encourages letters from its readers as part of its commitment to an open forum. To be considered for publication in the next issue, letters should be submitted by mail (The Record, 231 West 246th Street, Bronx, NY 10471) or e-mail (record@horacemann.org) before 6 p.m. on Wednesday evening. All submissions must be signed and should refer to a Record article. Letters may be edited for grammar, style, length and clarity.
