My experience at Homewood has been nothing but the best! I was raised in Homewood and went to Homewood City Schools for the majority of my life. The teachers at Homewood want nothing but the best for their students. They go the long mile to provide an environment of learning that enables students to be individuals of their own. Homewood is a family oriented community. They strive to do their best to keep the community going. The community has fundraisers, events, and foundations to give back to the city. As a senior in college finishing up my last semester, I appreciate the people who have raised and helped me achieve my overall success!

Homewood is a wonderful place to live. Everyone is friendly and it is close to downtown and Hoover. There are nice eating areas. The church in Homewood (Dawson) is great! Wonderful people attend that church. They make you feel at home.
I have resided in Homewood, Alabama for 7+ years and it has been great. It is very family friendly and has one of the best school systems in Alabama. It is a bit expensive and lack a great amount of diversity, but it is still a great place to live. It has a lot of local restaurants and shops that are fun to shop at and are in walking distance.
