Homestead High School Reviews
it's the best high school ever :D
music teachers work with us professionally, but i think the ELD classes aren't really good.
If you asked me what I thought of my high school when I was attending it, I would have told you I hated it. After having some time to reflect on standards of education, this is one of the better schools that I have had experiences with.
This school (school district) has great programs from advanced students, goes above meeting the standard requirements for education set by the government and provides a creative learning environment.
