Howell Township Public Schools Reviews

I enrolled to Howell High School as a junior. While, the majority of the student body at Howell HS has two more years on me, I can only speak about my few experiences there. The people at this high school are beyond welcoming. I was so frightened to go to a new school because I am a very shy person. However, my scared persona quickly changed when I realized how nice the students are. Many of the kids my age were more than kind, and eager to help me around the school. I wouldn't change much about this school. Majority of the teachers there are very sweet, and helpful as well as the guidance counselors.

I attended Howell High School in the Howell Township Public School District. It is probably one of the best high school experiences any student can get. The teachers are well educated and graduated from top four-year institutes. The atmosphere at the High School is very friendly and welcoming; people are mainly very open-minded. If I had to relive my high school years again and go through the dramatic weight changes and constant acne, I would definitely attend Howell High School than any other school. It was accepting and created a sense of security for all students. Teachers also demonstrated mentor like relations and always remained professional, yet friendly and guided.
I received an excellent education and was prepared for college and my future. There were excellent teachers and highly experienced in preparing students for their future.
