Francis Howell School District Reviews

Francis Howell is much what I expected. All the different races and a whole new learning environment. I entered this district in 8th grade. I'm now a senior. It's very abnormal from my old school district. I enjoy this school district because how involved they are with sports, clubs, fundraisers, and etc. A school like that will make you love that school. Everyone makes you feel comfortable and wanted. Teachers are very willing to help you with anything there is you find complicated. Also, all of the counselors and principals are very caring. They want to see everyone achieve. They believe in all their students and that anything is possible.Another pro about Francis Howell is you will never feel like you're being harmed in any way. You're always safe. The security guards does a great job at keeping everything under control. Francis Howell is the district of all achievable, outgoing, and successful students!
Review Francis Howell School District
I loved my high school experience for many reasons. I liked how nice the facilities were and most my teachers were very friendly, personable, and intelligent. I had a lot of friends and the sports I played at the school was the best part. We had great school spirit and our athletic director was someone who knew everyones name! Since it was a really big public high school, I felt like some teachers did not care if you as an individual did well or not. I feel like I had the resources to succeed, but I was not pushed in a way to be more successful as a student. I did not take advantage of college courses and I wish I was pushed to do so. I do not blame my teachers or counselors, but they never told me to take that extra step. My parents did not tell me either because they didn't know better and neither of them went to college. I had a little above average high school experience academically. The school in general was nice and very up to date.
The Francis Howell school district is an amazing one! It goes above and beyond to recognize all of the amazing things students from every type of club and class complete! The district provides plenty opportunities for student involvement in change and holds meetings where the community can suggest any changes they feel should be made. Even when they aren't pushed by the community, they challenge themselves to make the district better everyday. They provide a wide variety of courses that allow students to be pushed further than the old high school standards, as well as helping those who may need a bit more help.
