1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The class sizes allow for educators to cater to the needs of each student. Taking time to clarify a subject to a student that may not have a grasp on the material yet is not an obstacle, but rather it is encouraged.The caring nature of all staff is obvious. These are educators, military veterans, and academic professionals that choose to be in their position for the betterment of the corps of cadets.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Without Howe, I would have never had the tools to turn my life around. To finish school, marry, raise children.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would have been more open with my peers from the beginning.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
The educators genuinely caring about the students well being, and the bonds formed with peers.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Enjoy every facet of Howe by attending.
1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
The camaraderie that is established in the dorms is unparalleled. The school is international, so the students are paired with peers from all walks of life. The bonds that form are incomparable. The best man at my wedding and still my best friend to this day came from Howe.
