I happen to go to this school and it is a great school. There are always activities and things going on. The teachers are nice and go easy on you when you don't understand things. I'm proud to call it my school.

I have one child at Francis Howell Middle. I have been very impressed with the level of involvement the teachers and administrative staff have in educating and molding the students into productive citizens. This is not only reflected in their curriculum, but also in the activities and programs the children have the opportunity to take part in. The principal is caring and energetic about helping the children reach their full potential. The children's respect for her reflects her positive attitude. This school seems to have great balance which I think we would all agree is something that helps make a person successful.

I think that the quality of the academic programs are great. The extracurricular activities should be expanded to a higher variety and that the involvement of the parents is okay.
