Free Transportation for New Hazelwood East Middle School Students

The Hazelwood School District Board of Education recently approved plans to provide transportation for students at Hazelwood East Middle School Eighth Grade Center for the 2018-2019 school year.

 The Hazelwood East Middle School is designed to offer eighth- grade students an opportunity to pursue a career pathway of interest either under a traditional pathway model or an accelerated model. The program provides opportunities in broadcasting, health sciences, information technology, and coding. Each opportunity is specific to the students’ needs in pursuing a college degree or a career in one of the high demand fields after graduation.

The program will also offer college credit to students through advanced placement, dual credit, and/or dual enrollment courses. Students on the accelerated pathway may choose to graduate early or pursue an associate’s degree in general studies.

“At Hazelwood East Middle School we are responding to a new type of student and a new type of world,” said Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of schools. We have students who are bright, and they need access to diverse courses making them more college, career, and life ready.”

The program is still accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year. There are still a few slots available. For more information about the program at Hazelwood East Middle School or to apply, please visit or call 314-953-7337.
