Open Quote Not a great school if your child needs additional help. You'll face controversy if you send your 5 yr old to Kindergarten and not preschool. 6 and 7 year olds are the norm there. Don't expect exciting or educational field trips. Their only field trip was a few blocks away to the Garden of the Gods Information Center, not even the actual park. Howbert isn't open to the fact that kids learn at different paces. They strictly adhere to D-11’s guidelines. My son never went to preschool. Although he was slightly under standardized test scores, he made significant improvements each quarter. I saw his ability to learn this much and this fast in a year. They did not. The principal was angered when I declined her suggestion of holding him back another year. Their arguments turned to personal attacks (my son was listening to the whole thing). His principal pointed to his stick figure drawings. "Look at his people. There's no neck or body. This is a sign of immature thinking and underdevelopment". VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. This made my son cry. I had to reassure him that he was smart. I had to repair the emotional damage that his "mentors" caused. To us, Howbert was detrimental and very callous. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
