Vision and Mission

Hazelwood Elementary/Middle School is located in a mixed density urban neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore, nestled between Belair Road and Cedonia Avenue. The school is part of a neighborhood revitalization and is committed to providing a safe school environment for all students to excel academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and ethically. Students, parents, staff, and the community work together to help every child reach their highest potential in order to become responsible citizens and life-long learners.

We offer a variety of programs. We have created a number of nationally recognized partners including Opportunity Culture, NewFit, and Code in the Schools.


To prepare and motivate our students for a rapidly changing world by instilling in them critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and respect for the core values of honesty, loyalty, perseverance, and compassion. Students will have success for today and be prepared for tomorrow.


Our Mission is to provide high quality instruction that is coupled with high expectations for the success of every student in a safe, respectful, and welcoming atmosphere. We will also foster strong family relationships through parent support/fellowship and skills training.
