Learning Happens


Outside the Classroom

Our students learn best with multi-sensory approaches and consistent academic and social strategies. For these reasons, classroom learning is complemented by rich, hands-on, and experiential curricula, and ample opportunities to develop and practice social and academic skills.


Whether students are participating in after school clubs and activities, service learning, outdoor education, cooperative games or trips out into our community – these experiences are enriching their learning and social-emotional growth.

Drama Club

The Norman Howard School Drama Club was launched in late 2012 and returned performing arts to the school. At its core, the drama club promotes creativity, builds confidence and improves school performance. Students not only showcase their talents but also participate in a shared learning experience; they gain self-confidence, learn to trust their ideas and abilities, learn to work as a team, cooperate and collaborate with one another, learn to take risks and to trust themselves, others and the process…..life skills that transcend time. The 2016-2017 school year production will be Shrek, Jr. the Musical.

Students have fun while exploring science through demonstrations, guided experiments and group projects.  Science club meets the first Monday of the month, every other month.

Ski Club

Ski Club participants visit Bristol Mountain to take advantage of the wonders of winter sports. In addition to improving their skiing or snowboarding abilities, students form close relationships with their teachers and peers.
