At Stowers, we are committed to providing the highest quality education and academic achievement for all, while preparing our students for dynamic futures. Education is changing at a fast pace. It is our focus to enrich the learning experience of our students through rigorous academic programs and innovative instruction. Classroom instruction includes the integration of international themes and implementation of educational technology. Opportunities for critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration are embedded within relevant and engaging learning experiences for all students.
The Stowers staff is dedicated to a tradition of excellence and student success, where every decision is made with the students’ best interest in mind. We recognize the value of each student as an integral member of the school community. With a partnership of parents, staff, and students, we are working together to make a positive impact on our world.
Finally, the Stowers community is guided by the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile, which is designed to develop learners who are inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. All of our Snow Leopards abide by our Behavior Motto: Respectful, Responsible, and Reflective. Everyday, we are teaching the whole child to read, write and to develop into exemplary world citizens.
