With a total enrollment of 364 students, the school has a predominantly minority student population, with over 90% of students identifying as non-white, primarily Hispanic (54.4%) and African American (38.46%).

The school's academic performance, as measured by MCAS Next Generation test scores, is significantly below the state average, with only 34.09% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts, 13.64% in Mathematics, and 12.5% in Science, compared to the state averages of 58.24%, 49.69%, and 46.78%, respectively.

Despite the school's high spending per student of $24,836, which is significantly higher than the state average, and a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 10.4 to 1, the data suggests that the Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers (Horace Mann) is a struggling school that is not meeting the academic needs of its students. The school's declining performance and ranking indicate that the current strategies and interventions may not be effective in improving student outcomes, and further investigation would be needed to understand the root causes of the school's challenges and identify potential solutions.
