This school is awful! The playground is under an overpass. There is never any parking for school functions. There is a busey gas station within 20 feet. Children have been nearly hit by drivers coming in and out of there on more than a few occasions. The kids are not being tought well at all. I cant wait to get my kids out of there!!!!

My child has been w/ howe school for 5 yrs(includ. 2 yrs preschool). Mr. Dorf who has now transferred to East H.S., was the principal at Howe from about 1997-2006. He established a fantastic enviroment and hired an excellent staff of teachers. The new principal, who i do not know as well as Mr. Dorf, seems to be a good replacement... efficiant and caring. One of the things I love about howe is whenever I walk into the school it feels good. I always feel welcome at howe school. I have not met one teacher or staff person that doesn't care 100% about kids. I would like to see a more parents involved, alot of the same folks doing events. That is the only semi-negative thing I can say about howe. To me it's the best elementary school in green bay!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
