About Dowell J. Howard
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
