Everyone in the area wants to go to Homestead, personaly its not that great. Maybe the other schools in the area are just not so hot either, like Fremont and Los Altos High with are the rumored gangs. Homestead is just WAY over popullated, there are just was too many students here. My daughter can't even get the classes she wants. When you try to make a class change, they just cant do it. They can't transfer you anywhere! There are just not enough seats in classes already. You are stuck with what you get. The teachers dont seem to great. The language department kind of sucks. Sports isn't so hot either, they never really win anything. Some of the teachers act like they just dont care. Even though its the most respected school in the community, I dont respect it so much.
