This is the worst school my children has been to, the elementary side it not that bad but the middle school side is horrible i was in utter belief that this is where i had to send my kids to school, if the teacher tells me with her head in her hand "mom this is a good day" and the whole time i was sitting there, she was not able to teach the class because she had to keep telling the problem children stop doing this and that. I can only imagine how a bad day would be. It made me sick on my stomach. I feel like if i keep my child at this school that i have failed her as a mother. I'm a mother who cares about my children and there future. Parents you have to really try your best to be involved in your children educations especially if you have a child that is on these medications and most of them are on the medications so that you can get the check and its making it hard for the children who are not on medication and have parents who really care about there futures

The reviews here are dating back to 2008 and reading the comments it is obvious many were not written by adults. There are many changes that have taken place within the school. The faculty and administration is completely different from the ones during the years of these reviews. Our community is WELCOMED and ENCOURAGED to come, see, and experience the difference. Give the students a fair chance to excel without being tainted by parents' perceived negative experiences or personal gripes.

Hazelwood isn't the best and it's not the worst school to send your child to.My child did pretty good at Hazelwood despite the obstacles he had to face in school.If I can help it I would not send any of my other children there. Unless they get a better reputation.Hazelwood just needs staff and parents that are willing to make that school a better place for there students.In my opinion if you are looking for a school,do your research first.

MThis school is horrible! My name is Chyna Lowe, I've been going to Hazelwood for eight years now. The vice principal shows favoritism, lots of it too. The students are horrible too, but no one does anything about it. I don't think that parents should bring their kids to Hazelwood, in a student's point of view.

This school is the worst school to send your children to. the some on the staff there are really unprofessional. The vice-principal there seems to show favoritism rather than care about what matters. She told me that my child getting bullied in another school did not matter to her. If the vice principal does not care then who will. Like I said worst school ever. If you do not work here do not send your child to this school. My daughters were bullied and that matter was not reported. Only because the kids that bullied them, mother works for the school and the vice principal known them all their lives. Well you should know bad kids then. This will be their last year at this school.

That school is horrible. We get away with anything in middle school like non uniform and electronics and the principle don't do nothing.

This school it the worse school to send your child to. It depends on the grade that their in. Grades k through 2nd, those teachers seem to care about the students and their achievements. With the exception of one teacher. The higher grades, those teachers are worried more about coming into work and then leaving for the day. I'm at this school everyday with my kids and always seem to run into another parent who has the same issues as I do. My kids are in 2nd and 4th grade , and I promise that this is their last year there. As far as principal, all I can say is the worse I have ever met. Parents find another school for your child if you want them to learn.

The school and leadership is great. It was was one of the best choose i made for my son last year. I took him out of Sinclair Lane elementary and sent him to hazelwood. The teachers and principals are excellent they are so much involved with the kids and school.

This school is out of control, inconsistent, and more concerned about how things look than how things actually are. Do not send your children here.

I believe that Hazel is a good school, but there are some bad teachers don't care about the students. Some teachers have other agendas and are just passing time at this school.

Hazelwood was not a good school I feel like they spent more time worring about the dress code then they did with making sure everyone was doing well in school. They also gave out hundreds of social promotions during my three year stay.When I first went to hazelwood we had a wonderful principle but she got in to a car accident which left us with a new principle that stayed in her office when she was there.

Hazelwood is one of the best schools in Baltimore city to attend. It is vefy fun and you always feel at home there. I would encourge many parents to send their children there.
