This is a good school. I graduated in 2008 and I had a good time. The school was safer than some people think. We didn't have anybody bring things like weapons to school and had virtually no fights. When I was there, you didn't have cliques like you see in most other schools. People got along and knew each other. Some teachers were good and some were poor but that is the case at many schools. I liked the school activities like Moving Up Day and Spirit Week. I only wish that the school had its own stadium for outdoor sports and AP classes but other than that I would recommend this school to others based on my time there.

I go to howard and i think its a good school but were not perfect we have pros and cons but altogether everybody is like a big family some teachers you have are a pain and some you love but high school is what u make it if you get involved things get way funner. I am a 9th grader and i do have to say they are a little strict but i couldnt leave all the friends i gained for another school thats not any better!!! howard is a good choice mark my words.

One great thing about it is the class size. There are about 18 students per class. That means that when i need help the teacher will be able to assist me. Another great thing is all the activities. At Howard they puch you to join something and get involved. I am already on the football team, on the baseball team, in the student council, in the culinary arts club, and I lift with other people in the wieght room. I encourage all parents and students to give Howard a chance! Thank You!

Howard was not our first choice for our son. However we decided to give it a try when he was accepted there instead of Hodgeson. We are so pleased. The programs offered are current with today's workplace and although our son will continue on to college, the exposure to the shops have increased his knowledge and broadened his interests. The school does not have facilities in house for outside sports events. However this does not stop Howard. They use other safe and well-maintained facilities. I am impressed with the extra help offered to students. There are after school classes to help students prepare for the dstp, or to get help with certain subjects. They also offer Saturday morning tutoring in their library. When the opportunity came to reapply to Hodgeson, our son was not interested, stating Howard was where he planned to stay until graduation.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
