    "This is my son's first year at HMS and second year with HCS and I have to say as a parent I am very pleased. His teachers at HMS are outstanding! They are very understanding and extremely helpful, I couldn't ask for a better group of teachers or administrators. Everyone I have encountered has been professional and again very helpful. He has so many opportunities within HMS, NOT just academically but in sports and clubs as well. This is the FIRST school that he hasn't had a bad experience with bullying. I am hoping that HMS and HCS stays on point and continues to do a great job!"

    "My review is from a perspective that needs to be told about this school, not a parent who is a part of the school board's social club or a staff member who is part of it as well. This is a review by a former employee of this school who knows first hand about the false image of Homewood City Schools that is being showing to the public. DO NOT believe any of the ratings or reviews you read about this school or school system it is not what it appears to be. The school system is being run my a school board and board level administrators that have been hand picked by the superintendent to support exactly what he wants done - including the firing of the CFO to get someone in place to tell him what he wants to hear, not the truth that Homewood City Schools is facing serious money issues in the near feature. This schools is a prime example of this rather than placing a long time Homewood employee as principal of this school 2 years ago an old friend, who does not care about students or staff and in fact discourages staff from getting to know students as individuals. As for the special education program at this, all Homewood Schools, don't believe that lie at all. They are staffed by untrained and under supported aides, who are viewed by the schools system as completely disposable employees who they just call the next person the list to replace with. Do you as a parent want your special needs child care for by someone who is unprepared for the job and is viewed as just a warm body? If so this is the school system for you. I could go into greater detail but that would risk my identity being revealed, but ask any former HSC employee and they will be able to tell you Homewood is not the great school system it used to be and the Dr. Bill Cleveland is leading it down the wrong path quickly."
