From the Principal

Welcome to Hazel Park Junior High, home of the Patriots. At HPJH we strive to meet the academic, social, emotional, health and physical needs of EVERY student! We believe the key to success is community. At HPJH we focus on 3 key elements: Respect, Responsibility and Safety. We celebrate our successes and work collaboratively to prepare our students for the future.

Our dedicated teaching staff works tirelessly to deliver a high-quality curriculum designed to meet the needs of each individual learner. Our teachers strive to deliver content using teaching and learning strategies that are grounded in research. In addition, teachers work to instill a growth mindset in every learner. We believe all students achieve as the result of hard work, persistence and resilience while supported by caring adults.

At HPJH we also work diligently to develop and maintain strong, positive relationships with parents and the community at large. Please visit our website often for the most updated information.
