Principal Howard Wilson

  • Dear Families and Community of Eastern Heights Elementary,

    This will be Principal Dr. Howard Wilson's third year here at Eastern Heights Elementary School.l

    Dr. Wilson has been an SPPS leader since 1997, previously serving as principal for Battle Creek Elementary. His passion for education helped the school establish a true sense of community through engaging early childhood and Pre-K programs, increased parent involvement and school events for the whole family. We are excited to experience this same passion as he enriches and strengthens our Eastern Heights community.

    Dr. Wilson continues the exciting work to transform classrooms into “Personalized Learning Spaces” encouraging classrooms from the same grade to collaborate and learn together. He is a champion of Restorative Practices and is happy to have received the SPFT/SPPS grant for implementation beginning this year.

    Dr. Wilson has excellent academic qualifications.  He graduated from St. Olaf College with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Theater Arts; a Master’s degree in Religious Studies from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities; and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership and Administration from University of St. Thomas.

    In Peace and Equity,

    Your Eastern Heights Staff
