Homewood City Schools Reviews

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.
Review Homewood City Schools
In response to the person giving Homewood a low rating, I'm sorry you are disgruntled. Before posting you should check your grammar. Homewood is in fact a fabulous place to live, work and go to school. If you don't like us, kindly move along. I'm 100% certain that Homewood is the absolute best!
The Homewood City School system is special in many ways. For one, it is a very diverse environment at every level of school and there is little to no racial tension present. Everyone just seems to be accepting and gets along. Another impressive factor of the school system is the encouragement to participate in extra-curricular activities. The sole high school in the system has an athletics participation rate of 50% as well as a band with over 400 members. Dr. Cleveland runs one of the best school systems in the state. It is clear that he is committed to providing a safe learning environment that prepares students for the next chapter of their life. He genuinely cares about the success of each and every student. It is also a good sign when the superintendent has had his kids in his school system for their entire school lives. The Homewood School system provides an experience that is second to none and puts students in the best situation to reach their own unique potential.
