Horace Mann Junior High School opened in 1957, but the effort to beautify the campus continued two years later as workers yanked weeds and laid the ground for its front lawn. Today, the campus has 1,148 students as well as some of the same grandfather oak trees from the school's opening. Mann, 409 E. Jersey Ave., was the first junior high school in Brandon, but has been known as Mann Middle School since the 1996-97 school year.
