  • About Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 Community School

    We are BVHM, the Mission District's K-8 dual-language Spanish Immersion Community School, and as such we strive to develop strong bilingual and multicultural agents of change that can thrive academically, socially and artistically. Through academically rigorous instruction, technology, and the arts, our educators develop students’ collaborative and critical thinking skills, preparing them for a dynamic world. Inspired by the core values of our community, and supported by an equity-focused and culturally relevant social-emotional curriculum, our children rise to our high expectations and bloom into healthy, competent, and confident learners. Finally, our visionary social justice lens allows students and their families to analyze our current social reality, empowering them to transform our community for the betterment of all.
