Sallie B Howard Curriculum
The Sallie B. Howard School curriculum is based on the Common Core and Essential Standards as required by the state of North Carolina. This curriculum enables students to move progressively from kindergarten through 12th grade while building on their essential skills as they matriculate. It also ensures that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce (College and Career Readiness or CCR).
SBHS participates in the state testing program and administers all end-of-year tests as well as other assessments that state deems appropriate.
