School Reviews

Academic programs fail to adequately challenge students. Extracurricular activities such as sports if your child attended high school as a freshman onward, but if your child transfers in anytime after their freshman year they are unofficially locked out of making one of the sports teams. facilities are overcrowded and at capacity. Staff is rude and disrespectful. Parental involvement although officially encouraged is a farce because school administrators do as they please not necessarily what parents desire. I cannot recommend the Hazleton Senior High School to anyone. The place needs to be reorganized to include the senior leadership.
