The Howard Gardner School Reviews

5 reviews

Overall, I loved the education that I received from the Howard Gardner School. Using Howard Gardner's multiple intelligence theory, they were able to reach out to each and every one of the students' individual learning abilities. Many of my teachers were unique and actually cared about you and the goals you had in life. One thing that I feel that the school could have done better was to prepare me for college. They encouraged us to apply for colleges and scholarships far later than they should have, letting us frantically scramble as my senior year came to a close. Although the school had its ups and downs, I had many adventures and bloomed from a wilted bud into a blooming flower.

The Howard Gardner School has been a wonderful experience for my high school years. The staff and teachers are very caring and make learning fun. The real world field studies has been monumental in developing my practical skills such as learning to ride the subway, bus on my own, visiting various facilities, museums and other points of interest in the Washington, DC area.
Through the Howard Gardner School, I was able to find myself. It helped me grow from a very withdrawn middle schooler to an outgoing and confident senior in highschool.
