My children attend this school, one in 3rd grade and one in 1st grade. I am a proud parent of this school and I feel that the teachers and the principal here are doing an outstanding job! My wife who works in different schools and has seen many elementary schools in the area has very high regards on the school operation, activities and the overall standards. I am an active full-time Real estate broker, and I make it a point to inform my clients looking for homes in the area about how awesome Homestead Elementary School is, as I hear the same reviews from clients in the area whose kids attend or have been to this school.

Homestead has an amazing staff of teachers, TA's, office secretaries, and many specials that pull together to bring out the full potential in each student. The children are taught not only to learn the pillars of character, but to live them through their actions. We are fortunate to have a dedicated parent core willing to volunteer and provide many extra opportunities for "beyond the classroom" experiences. We love Homestead Elementary!

Homestead has great teachers (my son loves his teacher). Good neighborhood, diversity among students, very active PTA, and above all the teaching as well as non-teaching staff makes this a great institution.

I am proud to call Homestead Elementary home. I have three children with individual needs in which the teaching staff met each of their levels and helped them exceed academically beyond my expectations. Within the last couple of years we had a family emergency in which we would not have survived without the support of our Homestead family. They are the best!!

Homestead has a good principal, good teachers and staff that really care about each individual student. We moved from the city and my daughter was 2 years behind her reading level, Homestead teachers gave her the necesary tools and support to catch up those years. Thank you Homestead because she couldn't make it whitout your support!!!

Some of the teachers there are just wonderful! My son was a little behind in reading for 1st grade. The reading specialist there not only helped him catch up, but he's in 4th grade now and an avid reader. He loves his teacher this year and never wants to leave him! The social worker at the school is ever helpful. The nurse is a great help and always caring. The principal really knows how to keep it all moving and do her best at making it a great learning environment for all.

Homestead has very involved and friendly staff. The teachers create a fun and caring atmosphere for the students. The pillars of character are emphasized which brings about a feeling of community. The teachers are involved not only during the school day, but they are also involved in many PTA sponsored family activities. The teachers do a good job of preparing the students for the future.

The teachers and staff at Homestead Elementary are excellent! They truly care about each student and try to the best of their ability to meet each student's needs. The teachers bring creativity, intelligence and compassion into their classrooms. The entire staff work together to foster a community environment, which actively engages not only the students, but the entire family as well. I have three children with very different needs, and all three have had wonderful experiences at Homestead.

I have always been extremely pleased with all of the staff at Homestead. Every one of the teachers have gone above and beyond to help their students. The principal has always been hands on and always willing to help and do it with a smile. The education is top notch and the school is always giving opportunites for parents to be involved in their childs education. I have 7 children and I am honored that they all get to attend Homestead and have such a wonderful experience and foundation as they start on their educational path.

My son recently began Kindergarten at Homestead and I am similarly thrilled as the other parent review states. Mrs. Williams seems to be a fantastic teacher and the principal is very knowledgeable and hands-on, very parent-oriented, much more than I had expected. My son attended a private Kindergarten last year and I am hoping that as the year progresses, he will be tested and pushed to excel to his abilities.
