What Makes Us Special
Howell Elementary School lives by its “S.O.A.R. with Four” motto, which encourages students to show respect, be on time and ready to learn, act safely and be responsible always. Above all, Howell wants students to embrace responsibility.

These common goals impact everything:  from the way students act in the hallway, to how they behave on the playground, to being responsible for their education. Howell creates students who are problem-solvers with high-level thinking, high-level questions and project work in classrooms. 

The school offers a variety of programs to enhance learning, including OMA (Opening Minds through the Arts), GATE (Gifted and Talented Education), Exceptional Education, dance, music and art integrated instruction, math club, Student Council and sports such as cross country, basketball, track and Girls on the Run.
