Howard Township Reviews

1 review
My experience with Howard township has been a great one. I went to elementary school in the town itself and I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. The School was the highest quality school that was available. The town is a pretty safe environment too. The only thing I would like to see change is the talk of shutting the school down because the kids that come out of it are very smart children and it would be a shame to see it leave.
