"I truly believe that Norman Howard saved our child. Teachers believed in him, explained things to him, and encouraged him. They saw his potential and they helped him see it too."
- NHS Parent
Thank you for your interest in The Norman Howard School. We know that the decision regarding where to educate your child is an important one. We also understand that, for many of you, the road leading you to NHS may have been a little “bumpy”.
Please know our Admissions Committee carefully and thoughtfully reviews each applicant’s file in order to determine if we can provide your child with the support they need to be successful in school. We know you have questions, and maybe some concerns, but we are here to help and guide you through the admission process when you decide to apply.
I encourage you to take the first step today. View our Admissions Roadmap. I’d love to meet you and show you around our inspiring, vibrant school community!
Please contact me at 585-210-4721 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request information, talk and/or schedule a time to tour the school.
I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your child.

Most placements are parent-initiated when a parent recognizes their child is not experiencing success in their current school placement. Parents can begin our admissions process while, at the same time, working with their district's Commitee on Special Education (CSE).
FUNDING FOR PLACEMENT
The Norman Howard School is New York State Approved Special Education School and most placements are district-funded when a student's learning needs, as defined in their IEP, are not able to be met in-district. For families who do not secure district funding, our financial aid committee is committed to making private placement affordable through financial aid and scholarships.
