My High School Experience at Howell H.S. was great! I found out how much I liked law in my senior year. I have been lucky enough to have amazing teachers and guidance counselors who care about me and have helped me with my college decisions. I do feel more often than not the students at Howell High School are very prepared for College, we have a variety of different level classes including Honors and AP. Our Principal is proactive about safety and it is much appreciated by the students and parents as well. I have made amazing friends and will always look back on my High School years and smile. It is very difficult to stay home even when I am sick. I love going to Howell High School. The only thing I would change is in the 2018/19 school year we went to block scheduling. I did prefer the old way.
Besides having the mascot be a confederate soldier, it's an alright school. I feel most teachers cared about you as a student, but were very strict. But I've also made teacher friends who I still keep in contact with. The school is known for their performing arts program, but FPAC students are more of a clique than a program. The administration made it clear they do not support LGBTQ+ students but say they do since there's a Gay-Straight Alliance club. In terms of diversity, a majority of students are white, but I was the only white person in my friend group.
