Future Growth of The Howard School
In 2003, The Howard School launched a capital campaign to fund its future. Thanks to the generosity of local Atlanta foundations, corporations, parents, grandparents and friends, The Howard School designed a new campus in partnership with Atlanta-based architects Niles Bolton Associates and purchased 15.5 acres in West Midtown, near the intersection of Howell Mill and Huff Roads, to expand its programs and meet the needs of more Atlanta students.
The new campus opened in January of 2007. To pay for the land and the initial buildings, $18 million was raised from charitable donations to the capital campaign and the sale of the two former Howard School campuses – North Campus on Willeo Road (in 2004) and the Central Campus on Ponce de Leon (in 2007).
The award-winning campus is a customized learning environment that fits well with the metropolitan energy of the surrounding West Midtown area. The main classroom building can accommodate up to 250 Lower, Middle and High School students in separated areas, and it was designed to specifically reflect the way The Howard School educates its students, with plenty of room for flexibility, freedom and creativity. For our athletics and P.E. programs, the campus also includes a gymnasium, playing fields for soccer and track, a playground for the younger children and outdoor basketball courts.
With our current enrollment now at 271, the time has come to consult our long-range master plan and consider how next to prepare for current and future growth on our campus.
