Test scores do not reflect the quality of teachers in this building. I have had two kids go through Hazel Dell in the past with one still attending. New neighbors complain and see the rating on this site, but new families need to give this school a chance. The teachers that I have met are caring and communicate my son's progress and needs at school. My son struggles with following directions and hyperactivity. His teacher partnered with me from the start of the school year last year and worked with me throughout the year to focus on the positive, celebrate little milestones and help him in academics and his behavior goals. I encourage other parents to become an active member of their child's education and ignore the number on this site. Get a tour of the school while class is in session! My son's education was positively impacted because of the TEACHERS and PARENT partnership. For that reason alone, my son will be here this year even with other options with higher numbers in the area. I'm excited to see the progress my son makes this year.

Sad place to have to go to school. No empathy for special needs. Kids basically get Stockholm syndome from what I saw. Weird manipulation and shaming tactics trickles down to kids acting out negatively. Low income neighborhood without parental participation too...just sad.

Hazel Dell has made my children into well prepared middle school students. My daughter was so well prepared and is a shining star in her classes. Hazel Dell is what you make of it, just like any other school. If you have a negative, combative attitude and aren't in a position to hear advice about how to guide your student towards a path to success, then this isn't the school for you. It is what you make of it. Be open minded and positive and your child will thrive. The people are amazing and care deeply for their students. I have seen it many times, in all forms. Professional, dedicated, caring.....

I am so pleased with the education my child is getting at Hazel Dell Elementary. The staff is amazing and treat the families and children with such respect. I am always greeted with a smile and feel as though I can go to them for any situation. The building is clean and the hot lunches are awesome! The teachers and the Principal go out of their way to assess each child and their needs, and then respond accordingly. Either to up the challenge or to slow down. I cant say enough great things!

This school based on MSP state testing falls well below average. Is has a ranking of 3 on a scale 1 to 10. For some reason lower income students have worse performance then kids with a higher income. I do not understand this. Is the school saying that kids with a lower income does not have the same ability to learn or are they picking and choosing who they teach. I see the community ratings on this page how ever it does not state the ratings of this school based on test scores based on the states expected requirement. I urge everyone to go to the state test scores based on other schools around us, income, ethnic group and any other information you can gather based on facts. At that point let the school leaders no how you really feel and get involved. We as parents must be the leaders of our children and the school we send them to. Any suggestions to make this school better please put your review on here or bring it to the school and school board. Our children deserve a great education.

We attended this school for 3 years and have since moved out of the district. I must say that we miss it terribly! From the caring and always approachable teachers to the impressive involvement of the principle, this school is so welcoming and inclusive of all of it's student's. The parent friendly atmosphere combined with top notch supervision of the children always put my mind at ease, and I realize now that not every school has it as together as Hazel Dell. I appreciated the consistent and firm yet completely caring attitudes of the teachers - and their willingness to embrace each child's individuality. Thanks for taking such wonderful care of our children and we miss you Panthers!!

I am raising my grandson. I so beleive this is a very good school hazeldell elementary has a wide diversity in their students. The teachers are very concern for their student and do communicate to the parents which I like very much. When my kids were young they spent a year at this school now my grandson is going to hazeldell. He started with headstart there and now he is in third grade and doing well. Thank you for being here

Our child just completed Kindergarten at Hazel Dell. The teaching and administrative staff have been wonderful and the curriculum excellent. Our son loves school and his teacher, and can't wait to start 1st grade. He has performed well academically due to the way basic skills are taught. His teacher has communicated with us well and appears to treatsall of her students in a way that makes them feel special. The staff did a good job orienting us to the school and the way the curriculum is taught prior to the start of the school year. This is a great school.

Very nice new building, but academic program seems to be lacking. Sports program is good, but music and art are hardly priorities.

The new school has made quite a difference in our children's futures. The staff works hard to ensure that all students feel safe, important, respected, and involved academically. There are so many after school activities to choose from, that will benefit every child in countless ways! Another benefit the students have are the faculty members of the extracurricular activities. They can learn a dance from a different culture, as well as how to play a new song on many instruments! The parents of Hazel Dell students are also an important part of the school. Volunteers are always encouraged and welcome for events during holidays and for Panther Nights, which are held once a week. You can also find parents helping out in the classrooms. Everyone has worked hard to make Hazel Dell Elementary the best it can be, and will continue to do so in the future days to come.

My son attended this school for one year and I knew instantly it was not a fit for him. The teachers did not provide good feedback and seem to only be able to operate with a linear student personality. Any students that went even a bit out of their 'ideal' expectations were instantly considered a problem. My son is very kenetic and needs to move a lot and because the teachers at this school would not even work with that he learned almost nothing the entire year and ended up being behind the other students his age. I moved him to Walnut Grove where they were willing to work with him and he is now almost totaly caught up and excells at math. I would never bring another of my children to this school.

I don't think that I would want my daughter anywhere else. It is a new school, excellent principal and teachers. It seems as though there is nothing that this school lacks for my childs development and well being. She loves it there and I am happy she is enrolled.
