Thank you for taking the time to explore our school. We offer a unique learning environment with a facility that is home to programs for students with special needs from pre-school to age 26 and a K-5 Montessori school -one of only a handful of public Montessori schools in Michigan.  Our school also has a tuition-based Montessori Preschool for 3 and 4-year-olds. We like to describe Howe as “the little school that could”. We are a friendly, small school that offers high-quality education and a chance for all students to flourish. We have an excellent, dedicated staff, and an involved parent body.

Our Montessori students receive instruction through a method of education that promotes and embraces individualized instruction for children, a mixed grouping of students, personalized learning goals, and a prepared environment that uses specialized teaching materials in a structured curriculum that carefully blends both the Montessori and Dearborn Public School curriculum.

In addition to the Montessori Program, Howe School houses special education programs for students with Severe Multiple Impairments, Severe Cognitive Impairments, and an ASD Preschool. Students in these programs receive daily instruction in the general education curriculum using research-based practices, curriculum scaffolds, and skillful use of assistive technology to promote communication and application in a variety of functional contexts.

Howe School is designated as a fragrance-free environment. Thank you for not wearing cologne, aftershave lotion, perfumed hand lotions, or fragranced hair products when visiting our school community.
