Welcome Mrs. Emma Granados as Horace Mann’s new Vice Principal!

Welcome Dr. Carlos Perez as Horace Mann’s new Principal!


Dear Parent or Guardian:

My name is Dr. Carlos F. Perez and it is with great pride and excitement that I have been appointed your principal of Horace Mann Elementary School.  I possess over 18 years educational experience spanning grades K-12 as well as district office experience with a specific concentration in curriculum development, technology integration, and enrichment opportunities for children.  My most recent administrative experience was shaped by 11 years of successful leadership as an Assistant Principal at Katella and Anaheim High Schools, as well as Sycamore Junior High School in the Anaheim Union High School District. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son/daughter’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Horace Mann by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted Common Core State Standards to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Horace Mann Elementary School.

During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Horace Mann the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school.  As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

I look forward to working with you and your child.

Go Knights!

Carlos F. Perez, Ed.D.
