The Hazard school system is supportive, commpetive, and overall amazing. The teachers are always doing their best to prepare students for the future, always encouraging students to make the best of their years by participating in sports, clubs, etc. Hazard students do academically well and the schools have been 8th in the state of kentucky for test scores. I am a high school senior at Hazard High School and the only thing i would love to see change is the cafeteria food. Hazard is one of threee school systems i’ve attended in the past 12 years, and i have been at Hazard 10 and half of those years for a reason!!

I have loved my experience at Hazard High School. When I walk into the school, I automatically feel at home. The teachers know me, my family, and are there to support me. Our principal goes above and beyond for every student. The students are my friends. They always have my back. Not only are our academics great, but our school has the best class trips, homecoming week, and prom. We have more fun during these three events than most people do in a year. The students and staff feel like one, big family. Hazard High School will always hold a special place in my heart.
Excellent school for people that want an effective team to guide them in the right direction. The principle of the high school I centered on helping students graduate from high school and move on to their selected profession along with his staff are focused on the well being of student at school and in their personal lives outside of school he is involved in his community and town with out reach programs to reach all kids in his community and all of his county.
