I am a student right now here and honestly I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else. Our school spirit is great, we always support each other when a student is in need. The teachers are AMAZING, I don't know where I would be today without some of my teachers, they really guide you and help you through whatever you are going through. We have the FPAC program and that's the only flaw I could say about this school, our school favors FPAC a lot. But other then that, no drugs, bullying, or gangs are tolerated here and I know I am honestly gonna cry when I graduate here. Once a rebel always a rebel, Go Howell Rebels!!!!

School spirit is good. Leadership and community involvement is strongly encouraged. HHS is very strong in the arts and have a lot of talented students. Academics is average. This should be recognized and addressed.

In my opinion, teachers should be evaluated annually for teaching methods and their behavior towards students. My child who is a High Honor student acing every classes she's had since Kindergarten is finding some teachers lacking on teaching method and experiencing unprofessional behavior toward students. I also feel Board of Education needs to improve their budget. I was told that bus transportations are not permitted to make house pick ups due to a budget cut which puts students in danger walking and waiting alone at the bus stop. STUDENTS SAFETY SHOULD NOT BE AFFECTED WITH BUDGET CUT. I acknowledged budget cut but the bathrooms really needs to be cleaned better. I was informed by many students including my child that they hold it in until they come home.

Great place for my kids. Great teachers, and standards are high. Only wish that all children be treated equally just like one of the students review. It's serious coming from a student, I even heard it from my child. Hope this will addressed soon. I know everyone are pulling their strings to make this school the best place for our children. I applaud you all, especially the students, who tried their best to make the school one of the best.

The kids are great. friendly, no gangs, no drugs, no smoking, great programs for kids, but crowded. Bureaucratic administrators with defensive posture starts at the top and leaves little room for change or effective communication. School board superintendent is more of a dictator then a communicator. It seems that they prefer that parents stay silent, and move the kids in and out of high school like a factory assembly line.

the people are really nice, and there is no bullying. I just think it concentrates too much on the performing arts students.

I believe that in Howell, students are not treated the way they should be. the FPAC system for actors and singers etc. Gets treated as if there superior to other students. I think they should learn how to treat the students equally instead of giving FPAC students full on priveleges that teachers and seniors have. If this were the case, howell would be more enjoyable to many students.

Great teachers that really care. Only complaint is that they do not enforce the rules such as dress code.
