Open Quote My kids have had a great experience at Howard! The principal is great, open, honest and a man of integrity who is respected and liked by his staff. Teachers are helpful and seem to have mastery of subjects taught. The music dept.(choral and symphony) is the best I've ever seen - college caliber. This staff is keeping its head up, staying focused, and forging onward and upward, despite low morale system-wide with the current goings-on in our district. 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.
