Sallie B. Howard School offers activities that are fun and engaging and promote lifelong
academic skills and college readiness.
At Sallie B. Howard School, we nurture student curiosity through independent scientific exploration. The Science Fair is a rigorous competition that allows students to share their ideas and research findings with their peers and explore new possibilities. Participants are rewarded for their hard work and are encouraged to continue competing at regional and state levels.
The annual Spelling Bee helps students not only improve their spelling but increase their vocabularies and develop correct English usage that will help them throughout their social and professional lives. Learning high-frequency sight words has been shown to help with both reading and writing skills. Children who practice spelling improve both their literacy level and brain development.
College Career Readiness
We offer CCR classes to prospective college students in 6-8 classes to help students gain knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be successful in high school, college and in the careers of their choice.
Every year, Sallie B Howard School participates in MATHCOUNTS, a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person “bee” style contests. During the year, SBHS “mathletes” prepare by working together in a supported environment consisting of students with varying interests and ability levels. The MATHCOUNTS program builds students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are necessary for success in mathematics and other fields of study.
National Junior Honor Society
Sallie B. Howard School recognizes and promotes the important qualities of scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship in students by maintaining an active chapter of the National Junior Honor Society.
