    Howe is a fantastic school. All the teachers are exceptionally caring and invested in the education of the kids. There are generally about 15 kids in a class with 3 classes per grade level. The kids know all the teachers and staff; the teachers and staff know all the kids. Parents are involved and have a great attitude about the school. Both my kids have been thriving and enjoying a fantastic education experience.

    I have a kindergartner at Howe Elementary and even though my little one is just starting her education at Ogden I can tell it is an excellent district by the foundation it provides. I am impressed by the academics she is learning at such a young age. The teachers are very caring and I feel involved and welcomed into my child's class. She also enjoys the special classes (music art library etc.) and her classmates as well. The principal takes time to meet the students and walk through their classrooms as well as have assemblies for them. To end a great review this school was also voted one of the best in Iowa for its character education program. I'm very proud to be an Ogden parent.

    I have been student teaching at Howe for the last few weeks and I am impressed! Howe won the 'School of Character' award for the state of Iowa last year and it shows.
