Attributes of a Howe Learner

Through interdisciplinary curricula, the faculty and staff at Howe Middle School teach students skills that are built upon throughout their schooling and recognize that:

  • Students learn best when they are actively involved in their learning.
  • Learning must be relevant and engaging.
  • Students learn in different ways and all students need individual differences recognized.
  • We need to recognize success.
  • All students can be successful when we encourage their unique skills and abilities.
  • All students need challenges.
  • All students are the responsibility of the family, school and community.
  • We must always expect the best from others and ourselves
  • We must include and integrate technology as a part of the learning process

In support of this obligation, at Colleen & Gordie Howe Middle we are committed to develop learners who are:

  • Critical Thinkers
  • Collaborators
  • Effective Communicators
  • Socially Responsible
  • Well-Rounded
  • Open-Minded
