About this school

Charles P. Howard Elementary School is located in a very serene area with a dazzling view of the Bay Area. Our small community is a close knit group that nurtures and supports student learning. In addition to the core curriculum, all students have access to the computer lab, physical education, and Full Option Science System (FOSS). This year, Howard School is proud to be in the District's science and literacy cohort. Our staff is receiving professional development to enhance science instruction. Our part-time music teacher works with all of our classes and teaches instrumental music to fourth and fifth graders. We have a garden project and a weekly farmers' market, which has inspired healthy eating and wellness in our community. We have partnered with the Ann Martin Center to support the mental health needs of students and their families. The Dads' club is six years strong and provides supplemental resources to our school. Howard provides a caring and positive environment that engages families and believes that students come first!
