I am proud of the wonderful things happening at WMS and appreciate the changes taking place with Hazelwood in support of middle school philosophy. The staff, students and parents are embracing this philosophy and understanding the need to 'educate' all facets of a student to ensure we are providing quality people.

I agree with the bullying I am tired of my son coming home from being stabbed with pens and pencils by other children and some of the responses told to him is well you are bigger than him. Not acceptable in my eyes at all. The teachers are not listening to these kids. I have addressed them so much that I am to the point of taking it further maybe us parents need to stand together and take the next step to get results that we are not getting now.

Hazelwood used to be 1 of the best schools in the state of Missouri. However, I think it still is academically. On the otherhand, If parents would take control of their children, it would be a more safer learning environment for education. Also, some great athletes have come out the Hazelwood school district.

THe bullying at HWWMS is out of control. Although they have tried somethings to stop it, it still continues. My son use to love school but now it is a struggle every morning to get him to go. He has been physically and verbally abused by the same students. I beleive the teachers need to pay more attention to the classrooms.
