I love Howland, but the school needs remodeled. Badly. It's almost 70 years old. Ceiling tiles have fallen in the past and it's kind of an eyesore in general. The teachers are excellent, but you'll get an occasional teacher that sucks (as with many schools). The advanced classes (Honors, AP, CC+) are pretty good. The activities department only cares about athletics, even though the academic activities are very successful. The reviews on here insulting the food are outdated. They recently got a new provider and they're actually pretty decent!

The science department and Spanish teachers lack somewhat, particularly in comparison to the wonderful staff in other departments. I also feel that the AP program is undervalued and the College Credit Plus program would improve if offered through a local university like Youngstown State rather than Eastern Gateway Community College. However, in general, the teachers care about their students and provide a good education. The extracurriculars offered are varied and those I participated in were excellent.
My main complaints are the poor condition of the building and lack of diversity, which I understand cannot be helped, and the administration. They treat students with condescension and downright rudeness, participate in favoritism of athletes while ignoring the successes of other students, and refuse to listen to criticisms or even comments from students or their parents. The academics and extracurriculars were worth dealing with it, but be aware.
1) Lack of inclusion and acceptance for transgender students
2) Rarely enforces anti-bullying policies unless one's mother calls the superintendent (who, by the way, is awesome)
3) Lack of respect for students and our concerns
4) Horrible at relaying important information to college credit plus students and students attending TCTC
5) Principles are incompetent

However, a majority of the teachers I have had were fantastic and really care about their students. I just have a list of grievances for adminstration
