    Homer-Center Elementary is the GREATEST SCHOOL!!! No student is left behind everybody IS somebody and the teachers are always willing to lend that extra helping hand to make sure that each student is doing their best. It's not just the teachers..it is the entire staff that makes this system work.

    I love homer center elmentary because my children go there and the teachers take extra care in helping them and making them feel special. I love how the school feels more like an extended family than a stuffy school. The parents work hard to have great activities for the children to particpate in. There is always something fun going on in our school.

    The motto of my school was 'Homer-Center where everybody is somebody' I am so glad that my daughter is a student at Homer-Center now. These days it is so important for kids to know that they are cared for. This elememtary school really is a place where everyone is someone! Seeing the excitement she has everyday to go to school is a real pleasure for me as a parent. I know that she is getting a great education as well as building character and self esteem. Homer-Center knows that every child is special unique and really is 'somebody'!

    Homer-Center is the greatest school. It is in the center of a small town where you can't go too far without seeing someone that you know. Last year it became one of the only Blue Ribbon schools around. Great teachers and great students too...what a perfect combination!!
