The Record


Founded in 1903, The Record is Horace Mann School’s weekly student newspaper. We publish every Friday of the academic year, offering news, features, arts, commentary, and sports coverage relevant to the school community. The newspaper is committed to serving as an open forum for Horace Mann’s students, families, alumni, faculty, and staff and consistently wins awards from various scholastic journalism associations.

Led by an editorial board of seniors in Horace Mann’s Upper Division, The Record has a staff totaling over 70 students. We have opportunities for both middle schoolers and high schoolers with a wide range of interests, including writing, reporting, photography, layout, art, and web design.

The Record encourages letters from its readers as part of its commitment to an open and ongoing conversation. 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 ( 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.
