About Us

I'm happy to introduce you to Peter Howell Elementary School, which was built in 1952.

We are a proud part of the Tucson Unified School District.

Howell school

Our school provides high quality educational experiences for all students who call Peter Howell THEIR School! We have approximately 360 students for the 2013-2014 school year. Students come from the surrounding neighborhood, as well as from our extended neighborhood which is located near Campbell Avenue and 34th Street. We also accept Open Enrollment students. We are a BreakAway School which focuses on creating a community within our school and with our neighbors in the Peter Howell Neighborhood.

Many programs and services are offered to students and their families, including GATE (Gifted and Talented Education), Special Education, music and art integrated instruction, Seeds Gardening Program, restorative practice and Reading Seed. Our PTA is extremely active with several exciting events throughout the year. Keep a lookout for all the activities all year long!

We always love to have visitors and invite you to stop by to see the great things happening at Peter Howell.

We look forward to your visit!
