Hazelwood West High school exceeds the expectations for its academics and diversity. The teachers here at West go above and beyond the requirements for teaching. They continuously create a safe and positive learning environment, which betters the experience for their students. Furthermore, safety at Hazelwood West is very good. As a student, I never felt unsafe to the point where I was afraid to come to school. The teachers, hall monitors, and security do an outstanding job ensuring the safety of the students. One area for improvement is the involvement in sports and activities. The goal for the future should be to greatly encourage participation in athletics and clubs.

My experience at Hazelwood West High School has been amazing. The staff there are amazing. From the teachers who are willing to help you pursue your future career. Hazelwood West is the best school because it is very diverse with different students from different backgrounds. At West, the different classes you can take in the path of your career is what West promotes for students to do. I also like how that West allows you to choose to go to North Tech, which students go for half a day either in the morning or afternoon. This is where students go take classes for nursing, cosmetology, wood and construction, and etc.
Hazelwood West High school was a great school to go to. The teachers all went out of their way to help students progress and pushed them to be their very best. During my years of being a student for the school, the teachers did what they could to prepare me for college. From test taking, to life habits I needed for the real world, Hazelwood West High school does it's very best to make everyone feel like a student. However, a thing I could complain about is the school food. Though it's "healthy" the food the school receives and serves can be quite appalling. Normally bread is stale and the meat is dry, fruits are sometimes not as fresh as it could be and the only drink they serve is milk, which is troublesome to people with lactose intolerance. In conclusion, Hazelwood West High Schoolcould use some changes to their meals, but the education and teachers are fantastic!
