    For the seventh year in a row, Newsweek named Homewood as one of "America's Best High Schools" and The Washington Post named HHS as one of the "top ranking schools that prepare students for college."  Homewood was ranked fifth out of the Alabama schools on the Post's list.  Homewood High School has a strong, long-standing Advanced Placement program and offers twenty AP classes and eight Pre-AP classes.  Over 700 AP exams were taken during the 2014-2015 school year, and 73% of the exams scored a three or higher.
