I think Howe has to be one of the best schools in the district. The teachers that my children have had are outstanding. These teachers truly care about their students. I am so grateful for all of the hard working staff at this school.

I love this school. The principal is wonderful. She has done such a great job setting expectations for the students and listens to the parents. The teachers are also very effective in the classroom. My three children love Howe and so do I.

Spend a minimal amount of time in this school and it's clear why it is rated as is. It's about the paycheck from everyone from the teachers to the front office. It's a positive thing that the students have a lot of homework. This ensures they get the assistance they need. Lacks teamwork and partnerships.
