About Howell Mountain Elementary School District

  • Howell Mountain School is located in Angwin, California, and is a single-school School District.
    Howell Mountain School has served students in the Angwin community for more than 125 years! HMS provides students with an exceptional public education from the early years in Transitional Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
    In 2014, Howell Mountain School joined the New Tech Network, refining our work in the areas of Project Based Learning and solidifying our endorsement of 21st Century Learning Skills: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.
    Boasting a 1-to-1 device ratio, all of our students have simultaneous access to a laptop or tablet during the school day. As we move towards a digital curriculum, this becomes incredibly important in ensuring the success of our students during their time at our school.
    We believe that education is a partnership between school and home, and we cannot do this alone. We invite every parent, guardian, family and community member to learn more about our school, visit, and contribute to the programs we have put in place.
    The future of Angwin's children rest with all of us.
