Next to DisneyWorld, this is the happiest place on earth! They love and nurture children here. The teachers are wonderful and there is a great balance of learning/playing. The principal is awesome and Mrs. Bonnie is the best!! I wish my son could stay here forever!
Only appease to the parents/students who are well off. Takes advantage of children who are disable. Lack of compassion,communication and patience. Lack of supervision. School has had over 4 principals less than 10 years which should be looked at. Too much money being ask of parents. Racial issues is a big problem. Equal opportunity should be enforced.
My oldest child just completed his kindergarten year at Howell Graves. More tears were defiantly shed his last day than the first. This school is made up of an amazing staff and wonderful teachers! Parent involvement was very important to me going in, and you are able to be as involved as you desire! You will really feel like everyone in this school becomes a part of your family. Howell Graves has large fully equipped classrooms, the latest teaching tools (smart boards amazing!),and each child is taught based on their own needs. What I thought would be a really tough year turned out to be wonderful! Thank you to everyone at Howell Graved for all you do, and I hope that this eases the minds of some of you mothers who are dreading sending your little ones off to kindergarten!
My oldest daughter went to a wonderful kindergarten in another district and I thought we couldn't get any better. My youngest daughter went to H-G and was in Mrs. Weaver's class. I couldn't have asked for any better. H-G encourages a lot of parent participation so you have a good idea of all that goes on in the school. The whole staff is the greatest. You won't find any better!
I could not have asked for a better Kindergarten year for my son. I believe a child's experience in Kindergarten can, to an extent, determine how a child feels about school forever. My husband had a bad Kindergarten experience and from then always disliked school, but I on the otherhand have only great memories about Kindergarten...and have always enjoyed school. I think Kindergaten is the most imprortant year. It truely is the foudation. Howell-Graves and it's teachers are wonderful. They truely care for students and love what they do. My son absolutely adores his teacher, Mrs. Turner, and Principal Morgan. He even loves Ms. Bonnie, the school secretary. Thanks HGP for being so wonderful!
