I am a former student and now a proud parent of a 1st grader at Linwood E. Howe. We have had nothing short of a great experience at Lin Howe. My daughters teacher (Ms. Burns) is wonderful, incredibly dedicated and very hands on. The environment is like a very close knit neighborhood school, where the parent involvement is outstanding and all the parents know each other even when their children are in different grades. We couldnt be happier at Lin Howe.
Linwood E Howe is a small community school, that is extremely diverse. LinHowe is focused on service learning, the environment (a pilot school for Green 5), has programs like Hiking Vikings, a walking school bus, where over 100 children and parents walk together each Friday. Each year the academics advance . Outside organizations bring in programs like The Young Story Tellers, Shadow Puppets, Music, and assemblies. The strong parent groups raise funds to support extra help in the classroom, green projects and art out reach. Programs like Pair Pals teaming students with special needs with buddies for social events allows all our students to better understand disabilities and eliminates the misconceptions almost eliminating bullying. While our test scores are not be the highest in the district, they are still high and the gains each year are remarkable. During computer lab time, students have access to success maker software, a program that teaches testing skills, at the students academic level, class time is about developing the love of learning, not teaching to test.
