My overall experience while Attending Howard High School of technology was amazing, To just have people that care about you and what you’re doing was amazing. The teachers work hard to help each student succeed. While attending I’ve met so many Teacher and Administrators that will go above and beyond to make sure that each student reaches their full potential. I’ve had teacher that would stay after school for three extra hours just to make sure i knew my studies before taking a test. Best experience ever!

At Howard, we are a huge family, of course with family there will be a couple arguments and fights but we have each other back and support each other. The teachers are more than Teachers they are the aunts, uncles, and moms of the school. Everybody is involved with everything. Dr. Spoor is awesome and during hard times you will always have a shoulder to lean on. I honestly can say I love Howard!
Being a wildcat for the most part was a wonderful experience. Over the course of 4 years, I gained and lost friends, got certified as a dental assistant, and I’ve learned more about myself than I have in any time frame of my life. Most of the teachers actually care about your over all well being and offer to stay after school for help. There will however be those few teachers that shouldn’t be teachers. Wildcats are provided iPads for all school material so it’s convenient in keeping your things organized. Howard offers a generous amount of career areas to choose from and during your senior year you are given the option to co-op. The Howard administration are the best I’ve ever encountered. They value you as a person and take pride in seeing you succeed
