Excellent school- by the end of the year, my kindergartener was reading entire books by himself, and had mastered basic addition! The teachers and administration are very dedicated, and go above and beyond what is expected of them. We are also very pleased with the fact that it is a 'neighborhood school', which are very rare now. Most families are able to walk to school. It gives the school and its students a closeness that you don't find anymore. I am so happy with Hazel Grove!

This is the best elementary school is USD 500. The teachers are great, the expectations are high, and the learning there has exceeded my expectations. They have made AYP every year I have been there. You won't find a more dedicated school!

Bringing our children from private school to the public system, we expected to be disappointed. We were instead, pleasantly surprised to find that the school was great, and the staff was absolutely to notch.
