Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 Modernization
Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 (BVHM) is a Mission District K-8 dual-language Spanish Immersion Community School. This project is a modernization of an existing 100-year-old school campus located in the heart of the Mission. The highly anticipated and much needed improvements will support students and staff in their innovative work, and will utilize strong stakeholder engagement and community process.
In the spring of 2022, the District worked with a local community engagement consultant to connect with BVHM stakeholders about the upcoming modernization.
Events and Surveys
Over 200 staff, students, families, and community members shared feedback at more than 20 events and in a bilingual survey
Students in grades K-8 participated in hands-on design activities to bring to life their hopes and dreams for the school
Staff met to discuss concerns and identify educator needs and hopes
Families and community members had multiple opportunities to share their stories and give feedback through bilingual activities, group conversations, surveys, and more
The BVHM community’s values and feedback are deeply informing the project design.
