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!

This school district has gone above and beyond for my child. They really have helped her and she’s loves it there! This school district has a lot of children, but they know her by name which is amazing!
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.
