Howard Gardner School Of Discovery

Howard Gardner School for Discovery embraces a philosophy that addresses the needs of the whole child as well as practicing current, research-based education with an emphasis on Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory.
MI theory is a way of explaining how children learn.
It also emphasizes the diverse abilities of children and the need to assess learning using multi-dimensional evaluations.
This approach focuses on the individual learner, emphasizing inner discipline and control across age levels, and encouraging students to become independent, self-directed learners.
We strive to maintain the principles of democracy and respect for others and ourselves in all aspects of the educational climate.
Additionally, the philosophy of HGSD is based on the concept of teamwork and partnership, where staff members, parents and students join together in an effort to recognize that every person has unique talents or productive skills to offer.
Together we strive to make the school a safe place where the sharing of those ideas and talents contribute to produce the best education possible.
