The Record


Founded in 1903, The Record is Horace Mann School’s award-winning 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.

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.
