I am Zondra Howard, the principal of Harriet Tubman Charter School. This is my 12th year as a member of the Tubman family, and I am honored by the opportunity to lead this awesome school filled with dedicated staff and amazing scholars.
Our mission is to provide students with the academic skills, personal values, and habits of mind to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. To do this, we maintain high expectations of our students and our staff. We are focused on ensuring that every child masters the skills they need, and all of us at Harriet Tubman work hard to ensure every child achieves at the highest levels.
In addition, we have the highest expectations for student behavior so that students and teachers can focus on their most important goal: student achievement.
At Tubman we provide students with great experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We have a robust enrichment program that includes art, PE, music, strings, STEM clubs, and so much more. We offer afterschool sports and drumline.
A crucial part of success for students is attendance. As partners in education it is essential for our families to maintain an attitude that “Every Day Counts” for students to be in school and ready to learn each day.
Our school culture is defined by our core values of Unity, Responsibility, Courage, and Excellence. Developing this set of values will help students do well in any setting.
At Tubman we have created a positive, warm and inspiring school for students while being calm and orderly so learning and teaching can thrive.
I look forward to a great school year!
Zondra Howard, Tubman 3rd-8th Principal
