Who We Are

Nestled in the eastern foothills of the Napa Valley, Howell Mountain School serves 90+ students in transitional kindergarten through the eighth grade. With the help of our wonderfully supportive community, we have served the children of Angwin for over 125 years. A lot has changed in this time, but our commitment to providing an exceptional education remains steadfast.

Our Mission

The Mission of Howell Mountain School is to provide an integrated system of education for students in kindergarten through eighth grade that embraces and accomplishes the following:

  • Educating, enriching, and motivating students to achieve their fullest potential and become lifelong learners
  • Providing and further developing a positive, safe, and enriching environment
  • Providing and supporting students in academic challenges that foster and nurture problem solving and self-esteem
  • Effectively utilizing the talents, services, and support of our staff, parents, and community
  • Preparing students to be citizens of good character who will move successfully into subsequent academic programs with the necessary knowledge, attitudes, and skills for leading healthy, productive, and rewarding lives

Our Vision

Howell Mountain Elementary School District provides an environment where all students, staff, and parents are given the opportunity to reach their potential.

We Aim To...

We aim to ensure that all students meet or exceed grade-level standards as well as develop self-worth and social responsibility within a safe, healthy, and nurturing school environment that requires students to think, solve problems, and be creative. We will achieve this through a  comprehensive support system, professional collaboration, and strong values of teaching every child.
