They support students by being kind, but they don't support students in terms of actually helping them.

The most expensive place to send your kid once you have given up on them. The Howard School has no sense of urgency or desire to see their kids progress. This is a great place if you are happy to watch your child languish and fall farther and farther behind. Otherwise, please look for a more results-oriented school.

The Howard School has been life-changing for both of our children. The caring, qualified faculty teaches to each student's unique learning style. They help each student understand his/her strengths and weaknesses and how to self-advocate. Since coming to Howard, my children have become happy and confidant, and have learned to love school again. Our daughter is now in college, and Howard prepared her very well. She was accepted everywhere she applied, and received merit-based scholarships. Howard is a school for bright students who learn differently. The talented faculty and staff know how to tap into each student's learning profile and help them become confidant learners. Howard has been a gift to our family, and we feel very fortunate to have our children there.

Pick The Howard School! The Howard School is a perfect fit for my son, who is now in high school. He previously attended an A-rated private school since he was 4 years old. He is a smart kid, but was not doing that well academically, and had a less-than-stellar social life. We decided to apply him out, as other kids who attended this school did for similar reasons. I cannot believe the difference. He went from a confidence level of zippy to a 10 in about 2 months. No kidding. He is enjoying school for the first time in about 4 years! He has lots of friends, both boys and girls, and has very positive relationships with every single teacher he has. At the first conference of this school year, he presented to his Dad and me, speaking candidly about his strengths, and acknowledging his weaknesses and what he can do to compensate. I don't need my children to go to Ivy League schools, although they could!, but I do need them to be confident individuals that are in an environment that allows them to succeed. The Howard School is a terrific environment that I wish every child could be in and benefit from. You feel it from the moment you walk into the lobby. It's really a neat place and we are so happy to be a part of it.

f I could, I would give this school a zero. They put a child and family through the very cumbersome application process, including a $150 fee, and decide for unsubstantiated reasons that the school is not a fit. My child spent the day at the Howard School, and after a lengthy meeting with the Admissions Director, we were positive our child would be admitted. Beware, she is an excellent sales person and makes it impossible not to fall in love with the school. For a school that prides itself on learning differences, they are anything but. My heartfelt recommendation is to not give this school a second thought. Run and run quickly!!

I was very happy with Howard in the early years. Once our child entered middle school, academically our child did not make progress. After leaving Howard, we have gone to a more traditional school. The progress has improved dramatically. For the tuition we paid at Howard, the academic progress was not achieved.

The Howard School named its library after a woman that no one at the school has ever known.

This school is amazing. My son has Mixed Language Expressive Receptive Processing Disorder. He has a language delay as well. He entered into this school last year and it has made such a difference in his life. He now has confidence, can read, is part of the movie club, the art club and more. The administration is wonderful and the teachers are unbelievable. Teachers are wonderful! and amazing to work with! The Lower School is wonderful and there is a great lower school principal that is great with amazing counselors. They are worth the money that we pay to have our son go there. I hope we can stay forever!

The Howard School has been a Godsend for our family! Our son has OCD, and experienced extreme anxiety in his large public high school. He missed nearly 25% of his freshman year due to anxiety-related absences, and really struggled to make friends. While we knew he was bright, his grades suffered because of missing classes and coping with stress. We transferred him to Howard in his sophomore year. The class sizes are small, and the teachers get to know they students well. Our son has been challenged academically, but has been given accommodations when he needs them. There is a lot of discussion in class, and students have the opportunity to really delve deeply into their subjects. Our son was readily accepted by the other students, and he now has good friends. He rarely misses a day of school, and his grades have improved significantly. He's had opportunities to play school sports that he never would have in a 2,000-student public school. He did very well on the SAT and the ACT and he will graduate this spring and attend college in the fall. Our son is now a happy, confident young man, and Howard gets the credit! We cannot recommend it highly enough.

A different approach does, indeed, make all the difference. For parents of students with LD struggling in the public or private schools in the Atlanta area, consider the howard school. This curriculum is geared for student success with eventual matriculation ot colleges or vocational based secondary education. The teachers are committed and the campus is inclusive and welcoming. Although not academically rigorous, the program reinforces independence, progression and success for students.
