Hawthorne Board of Education Reviews

Hawthorne is a small town with a big town feel. The families (parents, single parents, grandparents) of the children in our school systems are a tremendous support to the growth of our school system. Our PTO raises money for bleachers, lockers, and PA systems to name a few. I would like a more varied curriculum to be available. A larger variety of language options would be my first recommendation as my daughter can't understand why she can't take latin. Overall...a great town to raise my children.

My experience at Hawthorne High School has been very positive. I am involved in a variety of activities including Volleyball, Softball, SHARE, and many other clubs. My academic courses are rigorous, challenging and have laid a foundation for me to succeed in college.
This school always has something going on, whether it is a school dance or any type of athletics. You will never be bored at this school. They offer many kinds of classes and have multiple ways for kids to get involved with the school.
