Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Hazelwood Elementary has enriched my daughters life, both educationally and socially. Highly recommend to any parents.

I have had kids in several other schools in our area, and none of them compare to the quality of the programs, teachers and staff at Hazelwood. This is the greatest school any of my children have attended!!

Too much time is spent prepping kids for tests and little focus on anything else. I agree with the previous post as to the talk that goes on about change...but little change takes place. the school does have good teachers I just wish they would do more to keep my child interested in learning.

I feel that there are many good things going on, but unfortunately there is a lot of room for improvement. The real negative is that constant improvement is talked about frequently but little is done to truly acheive meaningful changes. It is like 'the good old boy' network for women. There is also a huge differnce in time and resources spent on the below average, or challenged child compared to those that are average or above. There should be equal time and resources spent on ALL students.

Hazelwood has been a wonderful school for all three of my children. They have excelled in all areas with the guidance of the teachers. They are professional and on the cutting edge. They are also very caring and nurturing. It is obvious they know best practice.

Hazelwood Elementary School is a great place! My children have learned a great deal. The school is orderly and disciplined which leads to children being able to learn. The teachers care about the students, and most approach teaching in very innovative and motivating ways.

Hazelwood has been an Okay school for us. I say Okay because it has alot of room for improvement, especially in the LatchKey program. Children should have more room for choices and just being kids instead of such a strict, boring enviroment for them. It should be a kid freindly enviroment, instead of military format.

Hazlewood Elementry is a wonderful school, I have had two children go there. I feel that they have a great teaching staff, and great reading and math help programs which both of my children found very helpful. I also feel that my children are safe while at school which means alot this day and time.
