Howard Educational Center serves youth in a residential setting who have been placed for behavior disorders. Testing scores can be misleading as many of these youth come to the school 4 to 5 years behind in school. Many have been expelled from public schools. The school has all certified and highly qualified teachers with the ratio of one teacher to 8-10 youth. All youth progress educationally while in care. The school has a GED program with one of the best out comes in the state. Schools are rated on test scores but we have lost sight of teaching youth to love to learn.

Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school's profile?

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
