  • Recommended August 20, 2012 - The Howe School was instrumental in my son''s success. He thrived on the structure and individualized instruction. Small class sizes made it possible to move through the curriculum at a comfortable pace, keeping class time interesting and challenging. Consistent positive reinforcement of good grades and behavior encouraged students to do the right thing. Leadership opportunities prepared them for life after Howe. - Posted by Parent
