Be the Best on the Test
  • In April of 2022, Hazelwood School District students will take state tests. In line with our culture of high expectations, our goal is to increase state test scores and Be the Best on the Test.

    The Be the Best on the Test campaign highlights the importance of excellent testing scores on the annually-required Missouri state tests. Additionally, it reminds students and their families to start preparing for the tests by practicing math, reading, and writing skills. The benefits of performing well on state tests include:
