The school here is very good! Though there are various instances of us being "ghetto" here, I felt as though I was connected to this school. There are so many cultures here, so many languages spoken that it made me feel like I could learn so much about the world. The teachers are absolutely fantastic and know what they're teaching and the classes are easy to learn in. Overall, positive experience! There are some cases where resources and college readiness could be polished up, and the area itself is a biiit sketchy but overall, a nice school.

The Renton School District, especially Hazen High School, has a fantastic group of teachers and classes. There is a strong Advanced Placement program run by teachers who care about the students as if they were their own children. However, there are a few bad teachers who could not care less about the students' educations. These teachers only seem to live up to their namesake while being observed by the administration. Maintenance could be better. There have been several instances where students reported problems such as broken hand dryers in the bathrooms, heat that is much too hot in certain classrooms, and broken or missing doors only to have nothing done about them. The food is terrible, but that is to be expected in a public high school.
What I like about the Renton School District is that most of the staff is very friendly. I have been in this school district my entire life and there are definitely some negatives and positives about it. My first negative is that Hazen Senior High School has been trying to a flashing light on the road where the crosswalk to the school is. It wasn't their first priority until someone was hit in the crosswalk, due to it being dark. Another negative is that there have been several instances where teachers would gossip about other students, to students. Very unprofessional. However, the Renton School District has some very friendly staff, that I feel comfortable and open with.
