Howard School placed in the top 25% of all the schools in Louisiana for academic growth based on student performance. That makes Howard School a “Top Gains” school. Particularly noteworthy, too, is that Howard School is the only alternative school in Louisiana to achieve this designation. Well done, Howard School teachers!
In all of Louisiana, there is no other school like Howard Educational Center. Located on the grounds of Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home in Ruston, Louisiana, Howard School is a center of educational excellence which serves about 100 students. In addition to providing special educational services for the Home’s residents, Howard School also provides alternative educational services for about twenty students from the Lincoln Parish school system who cannot attend public schools because of their disruptive behaviors.
We are absolutely pleased to congratulate our remarkable group of teachers for their achievements. Individually, each of our teachers is exceptional and, together, they make up an awesome team of educators.
In addition to the recognition, this designation by the Louisiana Department of Education comes with a check from the state in the amount of $8,453.85. Howard School will invest these funds in further enhancing our educational environment.
Finally, as additional evidence of our school’s excellence, Howard School has had 4 students earn GED’s in the first semester of the year. Each of these students passed on their first attempt. Three of the four students scored well above the national average. The fourth student scored right at the national average.
Again, there is no school like Howard School!
