Hazleton Area School District Reviews

I'm a student at the Hazleton Area High School. I consider the school to be very diverse; we have people from many different nationalities. The school district offers high school students various options when it comes to education, students can choose to go to a STEM school, Career center or traditional school. The only change that I will like to see in my school district is to have better technology in the class rooms. The school needs new computers and other types of technologies to earn a better learning environment.

Hazleton Area High School is very diverse in its ways, which helps to benefit students in making friends and learn about the way others believe things. It is also pretty average in its teaching ways for students, giving each and every opportunity to do their best and put in their full effort. However, this school lacks authority. Discipline is handled a lot differently than most students would like. It favors certain students rather than all students and it is unfair.
Hazleton area provides a huge campus for students giving that sense of a college vibe, combined with 3 buildings offering classrooms from 9 grade to 12 grade. All within the perimeter and walking distance, supervised by cameras and local police law enforcement to guarantee a safe environment. Teachers were very helpful as well as the staff, they were the key to a great experience here at Hazleton Area School. Though the school lacked a bit of diversity and competitiveness among the small groups of racial and social background. The school made its best to provide different activities, in and out the district to bring everybody together. Overall it was a great experience to be part of the many students among this district to graduate and acquire a diploma from the ever growing community of Hazleton.
