    Homewood Schools are excellent. Teachers care and principals care. My children would never let me move they enjoy going to school. I just got a reminder two days from a mother not to forget my holiday snack. I'm happy to be a parent that has children going to this school district. Holly Campbell

    I love James Hart. I attended there and graduated in 2006. 7th and 8th grade there were the best years of my life. I'm a Junior at HF and all I can say is that James Hart definately prepares you for High School.

    Teachers are top quality district-wide. All three of my children attended Hart went on to H-F and were accepted to the college of their choice. Two were NHS. Many of their teachers are still at James Hart. The teachers are dedicated professionals who do not settle for less than the best for our children.

    James Hart definitely prepared my daughter for high school. The only problem I found was that there were a lot of cliques. Adademically it's outstanding.
