My son has had a wonderful experience at Hommocks. The teachers have been amazing. The sports program is terrific. The music programs and school musical is top rate.
Hommocks is horrible. If you care about your children at all, do not send them there.
Hommocks somehow works magic and turns middle school into a great experience for a really amazingly talented and diverse population! You hear so many "I hated middle school" stories...well, I can say all four of my children have LOVED Hommocks! The teachers were fantastic, the facility is amazing-pool, ice rink, state of the art theatre....! Great trips to Washington DC etc....so many avenues to explore at Hommocks that prepare you for the next big step at the High School. Highly Recommend.
Hommocks is an excellent school. My daughter is learning so much from all of her teachers. Not only is she experiencing academic success, but she is able to thrive musically because of the wonderful music program.
My son had a terrible experience at Hommocks. Whether it was the school or the middle school years themselves, I can't say for sure. The Hommocks staff hardly cared about my son's difficulties. All I know is that once he got to high school, my son started to recover and he is now doing great. He hates the memory of those Hommocks years.
Middle school is a difficult time for many children and I found the teachers and administrators at the Hommocks to be very thoughtful in their approach to what works for this age group from both an academic and social standpoint. I found my children to be well prepared to enter our H.S.
Both of my children have attended Hommocks Middle School. Hommocks is very good for those children who excel or for those children who are performing below grade level. The children that are average (not receiving any additional help) may fall through the cracks. I was particularly disappointed that they required every single eighth grader to take Regents Earth Science. Not every child is ready in eighth grade to take a regents and I believe it should be up to the family to opt out. I was pleased with the responsiveness of the teachers and the guidance counselor.
I think this school is the weak link in an otherwise excellent school district.
What a great school. The teachers are very caring and provide a high quality of education to the students. I give this school two thumbs up!
