I attend the Bridges program not because I have behavioral problems, but because I have a rare pain disorder. The school is great for kids using it for its purpose, however my needs are very different and this environment does not meet them. The staff do not all acknowledge my medical condition and could do much more to accomadate me. They try to lump me together with all the other students creating the same goals for me. They care more about there schools mission then my health!

Before my son started at Homewood, I only knew it as a place where they sent the "bad kids." What I know now is that this is a place where they will go to great lengths to help every child succeed. Don't expect them to sweat the small stuff, but do expect them to hold every child accountable for doing the best they can do. Every member of the staff is part of the support team for these kids, and they all do a great job. If your child has struggled in other HoCo schools, this could be a great place for them.

This school is very friendly and helpful to all students and staff. They really focus on helping the students one on one no matter what the situation is. They want your child to succeed. Everyone is very, very caring. Especially in this world today our kids need all the support and encouragement they can get. Thank you Homewood!

My son has flourished since attending this school. He has had trouble all of his school career due to ADHD. The teachers are wonderful and really encourage the kids to blossom.
