We, the staff of Dowell J. Howard Center, accept the responsibility of teaching all students skills for life, to include a sense of their future potential and a love of learning, by committing to a non-traditional process for earning various credentials that can include a high school diploma.
To this end, we also accept responsibility for:
- reviving and refining a sense of student confidence in their ability to be successful learners
- redefining "school" for students who have lost their focus
- providing specific vocational training for students who have determined a career goal
- assuring that students have the advantage of interacting with adults who care deeply about the content they are teaching and who share that care with the students
Watch students assemble an engine.
Watch as a student paints a car.
