As a graduate of HHS and current college student I have nothing but good things to say about Howland. I feel very prepared for college. Comments about bullying just seem completely untrue. Generally speaking both students and teachers at Howland really do care about one another. Academics, sports and other clubs are highly valued by students, and there really are great opportunities for everyone.

I resent the fact some parents that submitted reviews said "Howland is a bunch of rich kids...", "The children who attend the school are notably unwelcoming and judgemental..." & "any parent who wishes for their child to be able to be educated well in a good environment avoids Howland." Well I attended Howland and my kids attend howland. We are not rich and my kids attended a Catholic school til attending Howland High in 9th grade. They were both accepted and are doing just fine. My son is in Honors Math and is pushed to excell in his classes. I expect students be pushed when in honors, that's why they are there. My daughter graduated with a certificate in Multi Media (photography and videography). Where else locally can this be achieved except at a vocational school? They have so many elective classes offered at the high school... Multi Media, Programming, Web Design, Marketing, Publishing just to name a few. Yes a lot of attention is placed on football but what school doesn't. Howland High school is also has been EXCELLENT for the past 6 years!!! YES I'M PROUD TO BE A HOWLAND ALUMNI AND EVEN PROUDER TO HAVE MY CHILDREN ATTEND HOWLAND!!!

Horrible problems with bullying no one does anything swept under the rug. God for bid if its an athlete doing the bullying not even a slap on the wrist. Nothing but a bunch of rich kids with a better than now complex. Moving ASAP this school is not worth going too unless you are the star football player.

My son moved from Champion to Howland 2 years ago and it has been a good experience. The academics are very good, I've always had good communication with teachers and administration. He was accepted quite well, even coming into the school in 8th grade. Sports are pretty good, could use some new coaches. Overall, I'm very pleased with Howland, much more diversified, unlike many other county schools in this area.

Most of the laud for the Howland school system comes from the children who are not academically inclined. Emphasis in Howland is places on athletics and undue resources given to children with learning disabilities or average academic ability while the system heavily disfavors those with natural intelligence who elect to take the hardest courses. The children who attend the school are notably unwelcoming and judgemental, and my child had great difficultly adapting while he found friends and influence nearly everywhere else he went. Overall, I would suggest that any parent who wishes for their child to be able to be educated well in a good environment avoids Howland.

I am not a parent, but a graduate of Howland. I think the quality of teachers and education at Howland is superb. As a college student, I feel that Howland Schools did an excellent job of preparing me for continued education. The band program is awesome. Parents are involved and care.

I had an overall bad experience with Howland Schools. I went through the entire system and have never been happy with administration or teachers. The teachers and principals care more about the football team than actually teaching.

The educational system at this school is punative to say the least. They do not encourage a child and motivate them. The Honors Program is a joke. It is only a larger amount of work, not working smarter. Favoritism is at an all time high. Sports are held in the highest esteem. Administrators are either unreachable to problems or turn their heads.

academics are avg. at best. Extracurriculars are available, sports struggle due to lack of coaching choices and political ways. Too many things being covered up in this school.

Howland not only has an amazing academic program led by teachers who also teach at nearby universities, but the musical and sports programs are some of the finest in the state. It is private school standards at no cost!
