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.

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!
Homewood High School, in my humble opinion, is a top school in the state of Alabama when in comes to overall performance. It is academically challenging and provides students with numerous opportunities to further one's excellence. The faculty and staff here are totally prepared to help you with any occurrence to their best ability, and the athletic side has many successful programs that have plenty of state titles. In closure, Homewood High School is a great school that helps students reach their own unique potential.
