Homewood School District 153
Homewood Schools have a long-standing tradition of academic excellence. Class sizes are small. Parent volunteerism and community involvement is high. Solid curriculum and innovative programs are our hallmarks. Technology is a regular part of student learning. And in an era when finances force too many school districts to abandon art, music, theater, athletic events and even hot lunches, we are proud to offer a well-rounded and comprehensive educational experience in Homewood.
