I transferred into Homewood High School in 9th grade. I was welcomed into homewood very well and am very proud to be able to say I will be graduating from Homewood High School in may of 2018! One thing that they could improve on, is their knowledge about learning differences. I am dyslexic and was at a private school 3rd-8th, discovering how to excel in school having dyslexia. Homewood for the most part did what they could to accommodate me, however there are certain times that my teachers have a hard time understanding that I am working twice as hard as everyone else and still not being pleased with my grades. I feel that if Homewood City School teachers were to go to training and become informed about learning differences and worked on ways that they could go the extra mile to make each student with a learning diffrence feel heard and help them maximize their unique potential, Homewood would be such a wonderful place for students struggling with their studies!
Review Homewood High School
I´ve lived in Homewood and been in the Homewood City School System since Kindergarten and I absolutely LOVE it. Some of my favorite things/activities include Athletic Events (such as Football, Basketball, and Softball), Pep Rallies before the home Football games, and out of school activities that still involve the school. Honestly, if I could re-live my years at HHS, I would do it all over again!
Overall my experience at Homewood High School has been one to remember. Our school's staff definitely has each individual student's best interest in mind. For every question or concern I have there's always an adult that can assist me so that I am capable of reaching my full potential. Furthermore, the diversity and positive environment makes my high school experience outstanding.
