Farrell B. Howell ECE-8 School

A Family that Grows Leaders ✎ Una Familia Que Forma Líderes

Farrell B. Howell ECE-8 School is proud to be Montbello’s premiere Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. We focus on developing the whole-child by:

  • teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,
  • creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,
  • and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.

By developing the WHOLE-child; socially, emotionally, academically and ethically, we foster a school climate that promotes greatness!
