Mcdowell Private School

  • McDowell School's philosophy is to reach each child as an individual in order to help him or her grow intellectually, socially and emotionally.
  • We provide each child with an exciting and personal educational experience, and to empower each child to utilize these experiences to become all of which he/she is capable. Our intention is that each student will: read- enjoying all that the ability to read provides; comprehend and utilize math- both in terms of skill and concepts; explore his/her own society and those of other peoples and times; develop and keep in touch with his/her creativity through art, music and drama; experience new areas of thought and action; feel challenged; develop a sense of commitment to his/her environment; and, practice a respect for the dignity and worth of others.
