At Homer Center there are a lot more pros than cons. I like how the student body comes together for events in the community. When we have a sports event most of the student body and even teachers come to support the players. At Homer City we're like one huge family so we might not always get along, but we'll always support and be there for each other. The only thing at Homer Center that I would change is the diversity because we have very little diversity. I think that experiencing more diversity while growing up would've been beneficial to me and everyone else who attends Homer Center.

Homer-Center's faculty and staff makes sure to have opportunities for every student. There are many different clubs and activities to take part in. If a student is struggling through a subject or needs extra help, all of our teachers make sure to assist in helping them to reach their full potential. Unlike bigger sized high schools, our faculty gets to achieve a personal relationship with every student.
The teachers are very personable and very active in student learning. If they know a student is struggling they do their best to work their schedules around helping any student they need to. They are very approachable and easy to talk to and make you feel comfortable. At Homer Center, every student is able to find a "mom-like" teacher that they can depend on for anything. The teachers are simply amazing!
