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.
I have had a great experience at Homewood High School. Most of the teachers are very willing to work with students and help them to grow and succeed. There are a variety of electives available, so students can explore their interests. Also, there is support for students in the workforce. Homewood isn't perfect, but it's a great place to be..
