Excellent school! I have a senior and freshman presently enrolled. Very strong academic and athletic programs, particularly happy with the career academies at the ARL. My older son is already taking the principles of accounting at the local community college this year and will complete an internship at an accounting firm next semester as part of the Finance Academy, an outstanding college prep curriculum. Great teachers, great administration and a no-nonsense approach have made for a great experience. Top-notch Howard County school!
Parent of a current sophomore and a freshman. Cannot say enough about this school. The academic choices are fantastic for both my overly intellectual child and my sports enthusiast. The leadership, teachers, parents and community work together with passion and enthusiasm for the kids' best interest. FANTASTIC High School!
I'm presently a parent of a sophomore and even though she complains about the rigorous academic challenge I know that this school is great for her future. The staff and teachers are phenomenal and work with you to ensure their students have a great Future.
By far the best school in the HCPSS. I'm a sophomore here, my older brother spent 3 years here, and my younger brother is an incoming freshman. The school is great. There are many classes you can take-for whatever interests you. There's a great science and math program. Also, the electives you can take have a wide range. From computer science to art to strength and conditioning to principles of business. There's everything. The students are much disciplined and know the consequences of their actions. The administrators are really in it for the best interest of the kids. Howard's sports are up and coming and have been successful in the past. Also, the school offers an Army JROTC program that many students are enrolled in because f the discipline learned. My dad and two aunts graduated from here, and like them, I love it and can't wait to be a proud graduate in 2015.
Howard High is a first class school. The principal Ms. Massella has done an amazing job turning this school into a top performing high school. We are so lucky to have her leadership and a highly qualified staff. 10 years ago, this school was being run to the ground, poor leadership and many teachers just there doing their own thing. Now it's like an academy. Fabulous school!
