We built our home specifically in Fields of Northmeade for Barkers Mill School. Our daughter attended Barkers Mill for 3 months before summer break, and that summer we got re-zoned for Hazelwood. I was very disappointment because we built our home in that location for a certain school. But now, I am beyond satisfied with Hazelwood. My daughter has had amazing bus drivers, and teachers. She is now in 2nd grade and very advanced (reading level for 5th grade, math for 3rd grade) she does a little bit of 2nd grade work but her teacher has given her more 3rd grade work. The new principle Jessica Harris is amazing. We get notified by e-mail, phone call and text message. I am sad that this will be our daughters last year at Hazelwood due to a upcoming PCS this Summer.

3 of my children attended Hazelwood up until the end of the 2014 school year ( my oldest started in 2006) and they each loved this school and all the teachers there!! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this school and their staff! The staff works with all children and what ever their needs are... My oldest is very advanced (high school reading level in 3rd grade) and they kept her academically challenged while I have another child who needs the extra help and they made sure to give him all the help he needed! They love each and every single child as their own! Most teachers from other schools will only contact you if there is a problem with your child ;but NOT Hazelwood! They will call/email you if there has been an issue of course ; but they also believe in calling/emailing to let you know something positive about your child! Getting those special calls/emails just to let you know that your child had an excellent day or to let you know how he/she was a "shining star" and why just really seems to boost your child's confidence and makes them love going to school which makes sending them to school much easier on the parents!!

My two children have attended Hazelwood the last four years. They both started kindergarten at this school. Their progress is impressive. I have to really sit and think sometimes, when I help them with their homework. They are challenged academically and the teachers are involved/motivated. This school is the only reason we haven't left Clarksville.

My daughter has attended this school for 4 yrs now (K,1,2,3). We have LOVED this school since she started. We were not too happy with the old principal but the new one is truly amazing. He is very professional and always welcomes parental involvement. Friends of ours that have children attending other schools are always amazed at how advanced my daughter is in her education compared to their children.The class sizes are small and the teachers have always been very friendly. They send out weekly emails keeping parents updated on what they will be learning that week. We are currently in the process of moving due to job relocation, and I really hope our next school is going to be this good. I highly recommend it! Some parents have said that this school is run like the military but that is not true. The teachers do have high expectations from their students, but that's what makes a good school if you ask me. If your child puts in the time to learn then this school is a great place to enrich their mind.

My child is in 2nd grade at Hazelwood. I have to say that Hazelwood is by far the best school my child has attended. Her teacher goes out of her way to insure that the students are learning and having fun. I could not be happier with the school, the office staff and mostly her teacher, she is amazing. Very impressed with Hazelwood.

We have had a wonderful experience at Hazelwood Elementary. We had children in K, 1st, 3rd, and 4th during our time here. There are some amazing teachers, and the PE department is outstanding. The teachers are excited about their subject matter, and spend a lot of personal time and resources to offer additional activities such as after school clubs and computer programs to enhance the learning experience. We noted very little change when a new principal took over mid-year, and the office staff and administrators are attentive and polite.

I hate this school. My daughter was in this school for half a year before i pulled her out to do homeschooling it was so bad. She was being made fun of for her glasses along with other things. When i talk with the teacher and principal no one cared or did anything. My daughter went from an A student to a C student it was getting so bad.

This school, like all has its challenges. But, there is now a new principal. My children have had some WONDERFUL teachers and some that aren't so great. I think that you find this anywhere. I would agree that under the old principal parent involvement wasn't welcomed much, but it seems to be better now. I hope that this is the case next year. I encourage all parents to be as involved as possible. You should be welcome in the school and don't take "No" for an answer. The more you are there and the more you say, the more that you will be accepted in the school.

My daughter is a middle of the year transfer. They did not get outside time all winter. The teacher sends home a coded conduct folder 1- interrupting class 2 not following directions 3 not keeping hands to self. Etc etc. no feed back other then that is given, have to harass the teacher into telling me what is going on, half the time she has actually had to ask the children in her class what my child did that got her in trouble in the first place or will mark down conduct off the world of a child she didn't actually see it. She sends home homework that has no bearing on what they are covering in school that week. It's awful!!!

I agree with every bad review given to this school. If you are an involved parent, BEWARE. They do not like parental involvment. They indeed treat the kids more like they are in the army than a school. There is no understanding or kindness. The punishments are extremely harsh even for the youngest kids. They often don't even investigate the situation before they issue a punishment. The administrations is ruthless and apathetic. The kids have absolutely no freedom or individuality. They expect perfection from these poor children. AVOID this school if you can help it.

I have to agree with the last couple of reviews. Where did all of the teachers go that have been at Hazelwood for years??? It amazes me that so many have bailed out on the sinking ship. I think the captain and 1st mate have something to do with it.

This is not a good school in my eyes. The kids get treated like they are in the army. They should take an example on the school system in europe and also let the kids be kids sometimes! Would not recommend!!!

Truly outstanding school. We have a daughter and son who attended North East Elementary two years ago and both transferred to Hazelwood last year, and both couldn't be happier, and neither could we. Less crowed, smaller class sizes, newer facilities, devoted teachers involved parents, and a principal and administrative staff that are professional, accessible and responsive. The special programs, art club, and especially Mr Hadley's music department are incredible. Hazelwood is a great school with terrific students, parents, teachers and staff; we would recommend it to anyone.

My son has attended Hazelwood for the past 4 years and we have been very pleased with his academic and social growth and development during that time. The principal and staff are very professional and set high expectations for their students. Children learn from their environment and they set a great example for their students. The music department run by Mr. Hadley is fantastic! Their support of military families is outstanding. The very active PTO is another asset to the school providing great special programs and teacher/student support.

This is my daughter's third year at Hazelwood and my son's first year. The teachers are wonderful, the principal is very loving towards the children and parents! I'm love this school so much that when we were considering moving this summer I wouldn't look at any houses that were not in the Hazelwood area! I want my children to go to a school where I know they are cared for and where they are safe and most of all they have a great education! I had to pick a child up from another school and they way they did pickups were very unsafe! Hazelwood cares about the safety of your child!

My third child is now going through Hazelwood. Not only has the school and its atmosphere been a kind, caring and nurturing one, my children (one still @ Hazelwood, 1 in middle school and 1 in high school) have all academically exceeded and matured developmentally. The teachers are wonderful and I truly recommend this elementary school. We have been a part of the Hazelwood team now for 11 years and I have never had a problem or concern with anything or anyone there.

My child has attended Hazelwood for 6 months now and so far it's been just ok. I have to constantly fight with the teachers to recognize my daughter's disabilities. Each child deserves 100% from their teacher no matter how well they are able to learn.

This school was one of the best; its quality has slipped greatly this year with the loss of its award-winning principal. One thing that hasn't changed, the office staff is very rude. They are cold, unfriendly and always act as if you are disturbing them. If you are involved in your children s education, be prepared for a fight, they do not welcome parental involvement. The impression they give is that once your child walks through the door, everything is out of your hands and should not concern you. The teachers are a mixed bag, some are excellent, others barely willing to treat your child as human or show any interest. Discipline at the school is often harsh, kindergarteners are often yelled at and 'put against the wall' (isolated) during lunch for talking...a 35 minute time out with no one responding to their crying. I doubt the parents know.

Hazelwood has a very poor scheduling in how they scheduling the extra activities. They shedule over choir time over the children's recess time, so the children miss their only (one recess out of the entire day) recess time. The recess time was at the last period of the day before going home. It needs to look at it's discipline area seriously in how they reach out to the children and teaching them to have the right to throw other people's things into the trash. A principal that says they are not responsible for our children/our teachers as well makes you wonder if they are not their but for a paycheck.

Hazelwood is one of the best elementary schools in Clarksville! The teachers strive to teach the students as much as possible. The children learn so much, and they know that their teachers care for them. I have never had a problem with any of the staff. The special area teachers are also wonderful.

I have to agree with the negative reviews this school received. I've always been involved with my children and their schools. I found the staff and administration to be very closed and seemed like they didn't want involvement. My child went from straight A's to C & D's. The school was supposed to involve her in a group with the counslor for children with deployed parents but the teacher would make her stay in class instead. She was also behind the class in math from moving after the year started and after investigating the situation I feel like the teacher did nothing to help her learn the material. The teacher was also very rude and would say inappropriate things to the children. The administration did nothing when I tried to go to them I switched her to the local magnet school and she is much happier and has A's again.

I have watched the interactions between the faculty of this school and parents. If you are a parent who cares about your child, be prepared to get the run around here! they will go to great lengths to head off any parent who complains and to even prevent parents from comunicating with teachers. They seem to almost not want parental input. I don't know about you but i like being a part of my child's life!

My two children have been enrolled at Hazelwood for the past two years, and we all love it! The staff is professional and the teachers are very caring and helpful. It has been a pleasure to work on the PTO this year with other parents who are concerned about their children and teachers. My children both participate in the wonderful extracirricular activities that Hazelwood offers including Art Club, PASS, Honor Choir and the new After-school program. They love all of them. Mr. Hatley is the best music teacher my children have had, and we have 4 other teachers to compare him to. He goes above and beyond what is expected of him. We will be sad to leave Hazelwood this summer. Thanks for all the wonderful things you have done for our family.

This school is womderful. The teachers give feedback and communicate well with parents. They do tons of neat activities with the students and stay on top of things in regards to how the children are doing. They try to keep class sizes low so your child can ahve one on one time with the teacher and they can be sure to help your child when needed. The school is clean and the teachers and staff are friendly and always willing to help. The school has an excellent reputation in clarksville-montgomery county among parents and teachers. The principle is great and really does her best to make sure the school does whatever is best for the children. The school is very much child centered and I recommend this school and area for anyone moving into clarksviile.

We have just moved here due to military. I know different states have different standards. The class she was placed into is advanced for their grade. My child is having trouble keeping up. I have never met a teacher that wouldn't give a child a break until now. Since she writes some of her letters backwords the teacher takes off for this, thus giving my child a reason not wanting to try anymore. I can find articles saying this is very normal for kids this age(also with having two teachers in my family) but this teacher says otherwise. If your child needs help, please go else where they will not get it here. I have also been told there is no room for extra help they are filled in the beginning of the year. So if you move here your child is out of luck. Which is not right!

This is the best school. They care a great deal about the children and work well with the parents. They have communication folders the come home not at the end of the week but every day. My son's kindergarten teacher Mrs. Gavin is a wonderful teacher. Mrs. Bostick also worked very well with him.
