My overall experience at Howard High School was a great experience. All the teachers I came in contact with were exceptional! They make sure you always push yourself to be the best you can be. The slogan, "Pride, Achievement, Character, and Keeping It Positive," is a quote that definitely holds merit in the day-to-day affairs at Howard High School. The thing I appreciated the most at my high school was the assigned workload and increasingly self-paced assignments to help cultivate a strong work ethic in students . If it was not for these challenges, I would not be the hardworking individual I am today. There are many many more ways Howard High School has helped shaped our future, knowledge, and our identity. I am proud to call myself a Howard High School Alumni!

I met some great teachers and friends at Howard High School. There are ample opportunities for club participation and connections for scholarships and programs. However, the environment was very dull and uninspiring. Most teachers act like they hate their jobs, there is a incoming influx of misbehaved students, the fine arts program is on a downward spiral, and there is a lack of respect from teachers and students alike. Overall, in comparison to other Bibb county high schools, Howard is a good school. However, my experience was not all that great. Still, I’m glad I went because I don’t think I’d have to the same opportunities and advantages anywhere else.
The students and staff are exceptional and amazing! The only thing I disliked was the 10/10 rule, locked bathrooms, and the numerous fights we've had throughout the school year which is why I gave it a 4 star.
