Details

Established in 1980 by three parents and area professionals, The Norman Howard School offers a 35 year tradition of providing students from Rochester and the surrounding area an exceptional alternative to public education. Named in honor of Norman Howard, Head of The Gow School in South Wales, NY, whose advice and consultation aided the development of the school, we began by providing individualized education to six students. In 1990, NHS was approved as a Special Program by the New York State Education Department and named a NASET School of Excellence in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Today, a vibrant and diverse community of 120 students from 8 counties thrive in an atmosphere of support and acceptance where an individual’s strengths are promoted and strategies for overcoming challenges are developed.
