We seek to maintain a spirit of joy in learning, cooperation in doing, and optimism for success and the future. Our goal is to have every student exceed state standards in all academic areas.
Program Description:
Howard Elementary School is a technology immersion program where students and teachers integrate technology into everyday learning. Howard offers a rigorous curriculum that challenges students and prepares them with 21st century skills. We are a place where the entire school community gathers regularly to support, celebrate and honor the achievements of all our children. With the caring guidance of dedicated staff, our students make academic gains while developing persistence and personal responsibility, qualities that are the cornerstone of lifelong learning. We are committed to fostering a curiosity for learning and the skills necessary to prepare students academically and socially for the transition to middle school.
School Highlights:
  • Howard is recognized as an Apple Distinguished School. Howard boasts a strong tech focus with staff and students utilizing a variety of digital tools and web-based resources to support learning.
  • Our school benefits from having a technology coach and a technology support person to assist staff with infusing technology into everyday teaching and learning. Students have 1:1 access to laptops throughout the day.
  • With the support of Title I, special ed and ELL specialists, we are able to provide targeted small-group instruction in the areas of math and reading. A part-time counselor and PE teacher help us educate the whole child.
  • Our older students enjoy an after-school strings program two days per week. Our PE specialists also offer students a variety of after-school activities designed to encourage health and physical fitness in a fun way.
  • Howard offers a robust after-school program that emphasizes academic instruction under the guidance of a certified teacher, enrichment, physical activities led by City of Eugene recreation personnel, and a healthy meal.
School Improvement Goals:
  • Our primary school improvement goal is to increase student performance in mathematics, reading and writing such that all students are showing growth
