Open Quote Staff at school difficult. School has failed to communicate with parents often. This school refused to provide special education services to my child for several years. Howard school has a disciplinary policy that the majority of students are held to, however the administration has exempted their few select students. These exempt students are allowed to break rules while the administration and teachers look the other way. 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.
