I teach in another school system, but live in Homewood and send my kids to HMS. It's a terrific school with a great combination of academic rigor and extracurricular choice. I'm impressed with the quality of instruction and excited about the push to even higher standards. Kudos!

There are many excellent teachers at Homewood Middle School, but overall the school's orientation is not academic. Way too much time and attention are spent on band, athletics, 'good citizenship,' and discipline. End of the year ceremonies reward 'good conduct' more than creativity and academic success. Year long foreign language instruction is not offered for 6th and 7th grade students. Tests in subjects like social studies are focused on memorization, rather than critical thinking skills. The one bright academic star is the math team program. Thank you math team instructors and coaches!

I absoloutely love Homewood Middle. This school was a ethnically mixed school, and I was exposed to many different cultures while I attended. I wish I never moved from the Homewood City School system. The teachers were better than excellent. i would highly recommend this school to any parent.
