Principal and the staff are awesome, Love this school!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 14, 2007

Excellent School. My son began has been at Hazelwood since first grade, and he has had nothing but positive experiences. The students are not all stuck on one speed. Those that are capable of advancing themselves, are not held back by those students that need to move a little slower. Excellent, nurturing teachers, too!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
