As a recent graduate, I am definitely proud to say that I attended Homestead. This school has a lot to offer in terms of classes, clubs, sports, and overall extracurriculars. The thing that I liked most about Homestead was the diversity. Homestead, to me, epitomizes diversity. None of the other schools in the FUHSD (Cupertino, Fremont, Lynbrook Monta Vista) have as much diversity as we do. Homestead has a perfect balance of all races and walks of life. Some of the great extracurriculars we have include marching band (one of the top 10 in the state), FBLA (#1 locally, statewide, and nationwide), and overall our music and performing arts departments are excellent and have won many awards. We have so much to offer at Homestead and I'm proud to say that I was a student here. Go Mustangs! Go class of 2010! 1-0, you know!
My son was a student there and my daughter is attending sophmore year there.. My kids and I have been happy with this High School for many reasons, It has great stuff, students learn everything they need to learn before going to college and the High School offers many programs for the student after classes and I think the parents participation makes a difference as well. so I am happy with Homestead High School. tina
High quality academics and social emotional support for all students. This school prepares its students for life.
Homestead is a phenomenal school! I'm so proud of the fact that I attend this school. I never expected to get so much out of my experiences here as a new student during my sophomore year, but I have truly come to love this school - the people, the staff, and the overall environment. True, it is pretty clique-y but you do get to meet amazing people nonetheless. There really is a 'club for everyone' and challenging yet interesting classes, particularly APUSH, AP English, AP Calc/Phys, and AP Chem. Some teachers aren't necessarily the best at doing their jobs, but hey, in the end, AP classes depend on how much time the students are willing to put in. This self-discipline obviously works; Homestead sends students to Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, MIT, and other prestigious schools every year - more students than the other schools in the district. I strongly recommend Homestead! :]
Yuck. This school bores the heck out of me, and the only time I actually learn anything is when we (the students) manage to get the teacher to go off on a tangent. Your experience at this school is mainly influenced by the choice of teachers you receive. And before you doubt me: straight A's, my GPA is higher than 4, and I'm involved in clubs. I'm not some random hater.
Overall, I think Homestead does a fairly good job of preparing students for college. I do have to say that they do have some fairly awful teachers. I feel the academic reputation of the school is largely based on the students themselves and not necessarily the quality of the teachers.
Great extracurricular activites, an amazingly diverse student body, relaxed atmosphere ( a child can fit in, no matter what their interests) not as academically inclined as nearby academic powerhouse Monta Vista, but scholastic just the same. Downsides; due to the huge population increase in the school, they've been having problems with schedules, and giving students the classes they want ( this includes AP and honors). This could mess up stuff, and if you're willling to fight to get what you want, come here! It's an amazing school otherwise.
This is the High School I went to and it has alot of Discipline from all the staff.The classes are just the right size,I'de say the teachers should have helpers cos some teachers are slow.Over-all it's a good school High school that is,of course I liked school.Hope this helps Cprtnocheryl
Homestead has a wide variety of classes, extracurricular activities, and clubs to choose from. It is very diverse and the teacher there really care about the student. The counselors are very helpful. This school is one of the best
After looking at how the students prepare their work, I am sure teachers are doing great home work to bring the sudents to achive the goal
The administration seems to avoid addressing student issues. While the teachers may try their hardest, they simply do not have the tools. Schools in Cupertino are overrated.
I have two children enrolled at Homestead this year, a senior and a freshman. The school is large, welcoming, highly diverse, and academically exciting. Students participate in a wide range of clubs, some of which regularly win national distinction (FBLA, Math Competitions Team, etc.) I strongly recommend the school.
Great school. Motivated teachers. Healthy working atmosphere.High level of academics.
This school has improved in the past years both by the wonderful teaching staff and the quality of education. A beautiful school for the eyes and the heart.
This is a really divided school. Very hard to explain. No fun, all work mentality is very harsh. I wouldn't recommend any students to attend schools in the Fremont Union District. This school is horrible.
Homestead has a good quality academic program. They offer most AP classes, and have many extracurricular programs. However because of budget cuts, many expenses for these programs are out of pocket for the parents. They have an excellent marching band and music program, and have heavy parent volunteering and involvement. The school has a culturally diverse student population. One bad thing: school does not offer classes in German and Latin languages.
Homestead is a well rounded school, academically challenging, a forward thinking school.
A well rounded school with caring faculty. The school is well diversified.
I thought this was an awesome school. I cant wait to join the school next year.
