Open Quote My daughter is in 6th grade at Howard. She is in the magnet program and we could not be happier. The teachers are top notch and they are interested in their kids. Communication is amazing and putting the arts into everything just makes it a really amazing creative environment where artsy kids learn like crazy. Close Quote

Open Quote An exceptional school with the most caring, innovative teachers! Dr. Cartwright, the principle, is the most pro-active, child-centered, caring, forward thinking principal I have ever come across. My child is in 6th grade and couldn't be happier. The magnet program offers a great deal of challenge, and at the same time a curriculum that my son is excited about. Close Quote

Open Quote Howard Middle School offers more electives and after school real life experiences than any other middle school I have ever experienced. You can take legal studies, digital media, theater, aviation, environmental studies, orchestra, music theory, band, chorus, advanced art and other electives as well as having your child be a part of extra-curriculars such as rocket club, engineering club, solar competitions, garden club, math club, and many more. These students have the opportunity to fly to Wisconsin for an aviation experience, or fly to D.C. for a rocket contest as well as drive out to Coco beach for solar contests. The teachers are dedicated and work many hours before and after school for their students. 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.
