Total School Experience

As a parent, you want a school that knows your child and values him or her as an individual. You want a welcoming environment that puts the joy back in learning and a collaborative setting that uses the latest in research-supported, brain-based teaching methods to develop the gifts of all students, despite their learning differences. The Howard School is that place.
As the only K-12 school of its kind in the City of Atlanta, we help students discover their unique potential, celebrate their strengths and accommodate their challenges. Our compassionate approach allows children who have been misunderstood or undervalued because of learning differences to “exhale” — to come alive and discover that intellect is defined and interpreted in a variety of ways.
Each of our families was attracted to The Howard School because it was a unique fit for their unique child. We currently have approximately 270 students ages 5 through 12th grade from 60+ different zip codes.
Of course, students and parents are initially drawn to The Howard School for our specific expertise in teaching students with language-based learning disabilities and learning differences. But what families soon discover is that in addition to a robust curriculum, The Howard School offers a full school experience, with a wide range of opportunities and activities desired by K - 12 students and their parents. This includes varied and competitive athletic teams, exceptional art and music programs, performance opportunities, service learning, social events (including dances), clubs, enrichment, field and travel experiences, and college and next steps counseling.
In other words, Howard students are not missing out on a typical school experience. Rather, they enjoy experiences, extracurricular activities, programs and opportunities they’d have at a traditional school, while benefiting from a learning approach that fosters success.
We encourage you to schedule a tour, visit our campus, meet our faculty and see all that our highly engaged students are accomplishing every day.
