  • The hazelwood school district has gone down the drain. None of the kids there want to learn and for the ones who do it's a nightmare to be in any school in this district. Most of the kids are disrespectful and rude that I have encountered when the middle school is let out for the day. I loved going to that school, but now I would hate it and dread going.

  • This is a very good school, my child has been going here since it was built. I'm not saying its perfect or nothing like that but it makes sure anything is done the best way it can be done. Every staff member try to be as caring as they can toward everyone.They seem to like what they do for a living.

  • this school is a overall good school most of the teachers are nice but there are some that many of the students just cant tolerate usually when it comes to down to teachers here we're never right and the "adults" are always right the important thing is getting an education and some of the teachers are pretty serious about but some just could care less my past teachers sometime nagged about how the didnt get paid enough to do their job and i think that students shouldnt be exposed to this kind of behavior in teachers if you wanted to be a teacher you went to school for it and decided to have it as a career most of them dont understand that they are looking in the eyes of their future.

  • I don't mind the strict rules, but it's sooo boring. Part of that is probably because I have a 4.0 GPA (Meaning that I have an A in every class), and I'm not really challenged that much. I really like my teachers, but each class seems to drag.

  • this school has alot of rules! they are strict at every thing!! they take learning very serious too. they have no tollerence when it comes to bulling! they never joke around. the teachers and principles are very nice and they treat us kids like adults. they care for us and are always there for us when we need them!! just because the high school might not be good, doesn't mean that there middle school is too.
