My experience has been very eventful here at Hazel Park High School. I cannot say that me and my classmates here at Hazel Park have had the best opportunities and schooling but it wasn't the worst either. I'm soon going to graduate, some cant say that. I can still look back on all of the memories that I had in this school, even if the food is terrible. Though I do think the schooling is average, I grew up here for many years with the people who are closest to me, and this will forever be my home.

Nothing about this school shouts ¨above average¨. If anything, the school is below the benchmark on mostly everything. Certain teachers and programs are amazing, but most teachers lack effort and/or care, therefore making the students emulate the same behavior. The food, although free, is absolutely disgusting. The security guards are essentially non-existent. The only reason why the review is three stars, (average) is because change is occurring, unfortunately just not in time for me and those before me.
Hazel Park High School is a great high school to attend if you're looking for a community of diversity and new friendships. Hazel Park High is located in the small town of Hazel Park, MI, and it is the only high school in the city. This high school offers a multitude of Advanced Placement classes and each and every student here receives free school lunches, which might I say, are pretty good. The school itself is two floors and the student body is quite small.
