i came out to my sister and mom, and a couple of my close friends online, but what about my friends at school? Most of them seem to be homophobes! I dont know if i should tell them, ask them what they would say if i was bi,or just keep it from them. I need some advice.

If you ask someone what they would say were you bisexual, you may as well just be saying "I'm bisexual." It's pretty easy to read that one.

Since our sexuality is somewhat of a private matter, that mostly only concerns people we're dating or those closest to us, basically, you tell who you feel close enough to and comfortable enough with to tell. If all your school friends seem homophobic, then they may not be great people to come out to....or have as friends.
