I have been attending Hazelwood Central High School going on 4 years now. Hazelwood Central is overall an average school in some areas. Other areas I view them as more than average such as sports. There are some things I do want to see change within this school like disciplinary aspects. I think my school is too lenient in ways when it comes to discipline. Therefore I would like to see more strict punishments for the result of inappropriate behavior. In addition, I wish the high school counselors were a bit more involved with the students especially during senior year considering college is right around the corner. I feel counselors should stay in constant contact with students trying to find them scholarship opportunities or even setting up scheduled meetings about their future.

This is the biggest school I have ever attended. I have met a lot of people here who will hold a special place in my heart for many years to come. There were many different activities to always keep you busy and up to date on everything around the school and so many extra curricular activities for everyone. Not as diverse as others but all in all, you can find something you can enjoy here. Go Hawks!
Hazelwood Central Highschool for the most part is a safe learning enviroment that encourges students to go above and beyond. There are tons of sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities to boost student creativity. Furthermore, there are plenty of trustworthy adults to talk to if a situations occurs. However, I do think some of the adults could be more understanding when a student explains a problem they are facing. Overall, Hazelwood Central Highschool is an average highschool, one with expectations though not very strict and care about there students regarding academics.
