What I like about Homewood City Schools is the diversity. You could be yourself no matter what. From elementary schools on to the High School. The teachers that I came in contact with always wanted you to succeed. They would do whatever they could to help you accomplish any task or goal. They were always there with an open ear. The only thing that I would like to see change would be the better dedication to athletes. I felt that there were, including myself, so many potential athletes to go beyond High School, but the push was not there from certain coaches.

I came into the Homewood school system in 2nd grade! I moved to a private school in the middle of 2nd grade and returned to Homewood city schools in 5th grade! The teachers are great, it was difficult being a young girl back and forth (as it is anywhere). Middle school was alright (those years aren't many people's shining moments) high school presented many challenges. I had many health issues that came up during my time at HHS. Once I applied and was granted the 504 plan my experience was much much better. There were still frustrating times but Amanda Esslinger was an absolute blessing and advocated on my behalf. The majority of the teachers and staff at Homewood are fantastic at their jobs and truly care about their students academic success and the special ones genuinely care about their students lives outside of school.
As a senior who has been here since 1st grade, I can say we aren't as diverse as we like to claim. Our school is under construction while students are in the building and it can be extremely distracting during class. Overall my experience and education have been great, but it was of my own doing. Only a few teachers really pushed me to become the person I am, others just saw me as a student filling a chair during their 3rd period.
