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.

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.
Homewood City Schools is a great place for people to learn and make friendships that will last a lifetime. The mission statement is truly expressed in its efforts to empower each student to truly reach or maximized their unique potential. The students, teachers, faculty, staff, parents, custodians, administrators, coaches, and tutors are great
