My experience so far at Howard Jr. High is been amazing. The teachers are very understanding and always want the best for you. Although every student isn't respectful there are still multiple students willing to be your friend! Plus there are multiple curricular activities that you can do. Additionally, Howard Jr. High does an excellent job at keeping everyone involve and meeting new people!

Howard JH is a great place to be! The administration, counselors and faculty are like a family and truly care about each other and their students. It's a positive, happy atmosphere where students are encouraged to do their best daily. Students have many options for extra-curriculars: band, choir, athletics, dance, cheer, FOR club, Student Council, Spanish club just to name a few. It's a phenomenal school that wants what's best for students.
Howard provides a great school environment for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Whether your student wants to get involved academically, athletically, or through the arts, Howard provides something for everyone. I love teaching here and seeing the pride that the students have for their school!
