My son is studying 2nd in Mary C Howse Elementary School. I am very happy about his education here. The way each teacher handles kids is amazing. Lot of creativity encouraged. Very proud to say my son is in Mary C Howse School.

My children started at Mary C Howse in August of 2010. My daughter into 2nd grade, and my son kindergarten! We were all nervous because we were just coming off an unexpected move, and into a new school. Mary C Howse was so good to us. The school is small and intimate which made for an easy transition. Mr. Catrambone was also new. As a principal, we all love him. My family has established a relationship with my daughter's second grade teacher that I hope will never end. Mrs. Myers told me she would not retire until she gets my son in her class (fingers crossed!). I try to bake something for every event that comes up, and the family support for the school is overwhelming. My daughter has asthma and sometimes needs a treatment at school, the nurse and her staff make me very comfortable. They encourage me to call if I have any concerns or questions. The lunch staff was very helpful when I went in to see what my son as doing at lunch time. They explained what he could get and what he couldn't get. He is a very picky eater, and I saw that they encouraged all of the kids to have the right things on their plate! The teachers and staff are all wonderful at Mary C Howse, and I am hoping we will be there till my kids get out!
