My experience at Hawthorne Middle School has not been the best. The classes are extremely overcrowded and the kids are not getting all they can because of this reason. I often check my son and his friend s social websites and see many jokes about how they go to school and do nothing. I would not recommend this school; if you have the choice I would think obtaining a permit to go to another district would be much better. If you have to stay within the district it would be best to stay in close contact with your child s teachers.
Hawthorne is the best school your child could ever go to! I recommend this school because here at HMS there is great teachers. It is a lot of fun. This school is a protected area. Anyone can come to this school, you should too!
Hawthorne middle school is a great school. I transferred my daughter who is in the eighth grade at hms, from the inglewood middle school. I can tell the difference! my daughter is doing very well, and I think many times it is up to the child if they want to learn or not. You can't blame the school, because they are doing there job, because I can tell hms has dedicated teachers and a hardworking staff that wants to see there kids achieve!
As an eight grader at hms, I love my school! I don't think parents can really say how good a school is because they don't wake up every morning to go to it. Ms. Ostensen does a great job, whether its enforcing the dress code, or making sure we know our times tables, she does her job! Go hawks!
This is school is deffinetly a great place to go to a transition from elementary school to middle school. Here, as an alumni, I remember, some of what I can call the best years of my life, the staff was very supportive and helped me direct my talents in the right direction.
