Current School Improvement Plan with updates

Francis Howell Middle is one of top middle schools in the state. Just today three parents shared with me how much they love our school and that they are so happy that their children attend "our" school. The first parent told me that she researched and researched schools before selecting to move into our attendance area last year. The second parent told me that switching from a small private school was the best decision he and his wife ever made for their three children. He went on to say that he left the option open for his children to attend private high schools, and they gave him a resounding "no thank you". They will stay here in Francis Howell. The third parent explained that he has seen such an positive and incredible transformation within his daughter since arriving here at Howell Middle last year. His family moved into our area from a neighboring school.
