Hazel Park Public Schools Reviews

The city of Hazel Park is very compact and tight-knit, so everybody grew up together. Which is quite nice considering it can be very hard to make friends in a bigger school/neighborhood. Hazel Park High School has a welcoming atmosphere, but the food is horrid and the school is falling falling. Most of the school's money is used on the sports teams, and little money goes to the arts programs, like band/marching band or just regular art classes. Back to the food, students find flies in the salads, mold on the fruit or in the marinara dipping sauce. Almost every big building has cockroaches but at our school, you see one quite often just scurrying around the hallways. The school has no attendance policy, so kids that show up late to class everyday don't get truancy charges. In the bathrooms, most of the toilets don't work, tiles missing off the floors. Just bad all around

I have grown up in Hazel Park since the beginning of my time. As the years have gone by some things have changed, but not all for the common good. Although, there has been numerous good changes to the community, and I couldn't imagine growing up in a different area. The people here have shared a great bond with me, and we have made some great memories. Imagining to play for other school teams, or sitting in their classrooms is unrealistic. Therefore, Hazel Park has given me the best experience of high school that they could possibly provide.
These schools are excellent. Not sure why the rating is low because the kids do well in college. I've heard that state testing is biased. The teachers stay longer than average. STEM starts in early childhood. Best athletics around. Award-winning arts programming. Beautiful grounds. Progressive Early Childhood Programming. Food is good and free. Love the small town feel in the middle of the city.
