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.

Homewood is a great environment for those who enjoy to be surrounded by a heavily involved community. School academics are the highest priority here, while activities like band, sports, and charity funding events are always large, successful programs. Since we are a small area, many have voted for the schools to be enhanced in size, and eco-friendliness. (And in a very short time since then, they have-- and are currently renovating all schools since 2009.) If you want a kind, safe, rural community with local produce, events, and specialty locations for students, and Homewood people, this is the place for you.
I am a 7th grader currently at HMS. I have moved back and forth from many states including Nebraska and North Carolina. At HMS, almost everything is perfect. Except the one thing people are judging on most of the time. Students. Here, some students think it's a good idea to make other lives more miserable. And most of the time, they succeed. I should know, I get bullied all the time here. Especially 8th grade. I haven't even finished my 2nd 9 weeks of 7th grade and I really do not want to go to 8th grade at all and be classified as rude, disturbing, and defiant. I would have a much better time in middle school by going to Pizitz. So take your kid here if you want that is not my choice. But be prepared to have a lot of tears.
