The mission of Homestead High School is to equip all students with transferable skills, promote academic independence, foster social responsibility, and inspire a passion for learning.
Development of Our Mission Statement
Each word and phase of the mission was chosen with great care and consideration to
articulate our primary aspirations for faculty and students alike. It encompasses our common
commitments within a single classroom, throughout a department, and across the school. At
the same time, it reframes the scope of our academic work, adding an emphasis on postsecondary readiness for all of our graduates. Understanding that personal development is as
essential as academic, the mission challenges all of us, students and adults, to understand
ourselves and our possible contributions to our school and larger community. Finally, the
mission is a challenge to create and engage in learning experiences that tap the innate desire to
learn that each student possesses.
