Living in Howell, I've made many friends through Howell High School networking. It's a decently small town and Howell High School is something that connects us all. The campus is very safe, very big, and faculty and staff are very pleasant. Our sporting events are always a fun (Especially our football games, they draw a very large and enthusiast crowd) The community involvement is fantastic, it brings me pride know that Howell High gives teens a chance to really experience making a positive difference in our community. We also have some amazing academics programs that other schools in the community don't have, such as our fire fighting program that trains young men and women who are interested in pursuing a career in being a first responder. There really is some brilliant opportunities that come with being a Howell Highlander.

Howell high school has many programs and courses to fit a variety of academic, athletic, and social interests. The staff throughout the district is excellent, especially at the elementary level. I believe one way to improve the high school is having more educators from different companies that can provide real life experiences and lessons. The high school has prepared me for the next chapter in my education.
It was a great school with excellent teachers. My only complaint would be is that the school district only seemed to focus on standardized tests and not on the actual everyday education. In talking with people from other school districts, I feel like I missed out on some basic education but became really great at taking standardized tests.
