I am a current Homewood High School senior, and what I like most about Homewood is the Foreign Language department, the Academic resources, and most of the staff. There is a wide variety of classes to take and choose from, and the Athletic teams are usually State Champions. It also has fun things like Spirit Week during football season every week, and students can dress up every Friday. Homecoming is usually fun too, with a full Spirit Week, a parade, and a Dance. They are currently bring our remodeling to a close, so we will have virtually a brand-new school! If you are not a very strong student they have people there to help you, as well as a Credit Recovery course. Overall, Homewood is a good place to attend. The only thing I would change is a few teachers and create a bit more racial, cultural and financial diversity.

Homewood High School is a great school to make the most best frriends you'll ever meet! They'll have some teachers that'll be able to teach and others that can't causing great conversations for the future. The lunch is not worth being eaten, so I prefer bringing a lunch from home, but some students are able to at least tolerate it. Then, Homewood City Schools is beyond strict. They barely let you walk in the hallways without a pass. If you get caught without a hall pass, depending on the teacher you have, can result in major circumstances or a warning. This school has teachers that'll also see students doing things they shouldn't to others or let people say words they shouldn't say that can cause controversy, but yet the teachers just watch they never do anything. That's one major flaw that needs to be fixed. Lastly, Homewood High School is known to be a great school to make great memories with the friends you have and some of the teachers.
This school is famous for its band, but the level of advancement its classes have should not be discredited. Having been here for three years and couple months I have met many of the teachers, and all of them have been an enormous help in boosting me towards my goals in life. It has a very wide range of clubs, activities, sports, and even the Fine Arts Department is quite diverse with the dance team, marching band, concert band, and the advanced art classes. I believe Homewood prepares its students for college academically, but the college councilors do not help the students as much as most would like. Though they are enthusiastic about getting students to apply for college.
