The Norman Howard School, who is supported by Education Success Foundation, was established in 1980 by parents and area professionals. The Norman Howard School offers a 38 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. Today, a vibrant and diverse community of more than 110 students from more than 9 counties thrive in an atmosphere of support and acceptance where an individual’s strengths are promoted and strategies for managing challenges are developed.
Encompass Resources for Learning, also supported by the Education Success Foundation, develops and provides innovative educational services to students and to the families, schools, communities, and professionals that support them.
