The Howard School

School Photo or ActivityThe purpose of The Howard School is to enable each child to achieve what our curriculum’s founder, Miss Mae Carden, called “Life Triumphant”.   We are able to achieve this by offering a vital, sequential and interrelated curriculum based on the principle that it is our purpose not to lock the children into one mold, but to “equip a child in such a way that the knowledge and skills he/she attains serves the child as tools by which he/she may express individuality in the field of his/her choice.”   These skills include a broad understanding of academic fundamentals, the development of stamina, and the nurturing of each child’s character.  Throughout the decades, our apporach has proven successful in preparing children for the challenges of modern life.
