Hazen Senior High School consistently outperforms the Renton School District and Washington state averages in standardized test scores, particularly in English Language Arts (ELA) and Science. In the 2022-2023 school year, Hazen's 10th-grade students scored 67.66% proficient or better in ELA, compared to the district's 58.94% and the state's 65.89%. The school also maintains a strong four-year graduation rate, ranging from 87.5% to 90.6% over the past five years, outperforming the district and state averages. Hazen's diverse student population, with a relatively even distribution across White, Asian, and Hispanic students, is a strength that provides students with the opportunity to learn from and interact with peers from various backgrounds.

While Hazen Senior High School has performed well for certain student subgroups, the lower performance for Hispanic and English Language Learner (ELL) students is a concern that warrants further investigation and targeted interventions. Compared to the other high schools in the Renton School District, Hazen stands out as the top-performing school, but the nearby Liberty Senior High School, which is part of the Issaquah School District, outperforms Hazen in several key metrics, including test scores and graduation rates.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

Open Quote I have two current students at Hazen, and two graduates. It is an AMAZING community of students, parents and teachers. The students are nice to each other, the parents friendly and eager to help, and the staff is motivated to get the most out of every student they have. We are bordered by excellent, and over-all wealthier school districts (Issaquah and Bellevue), but we believe our children were best served by the Renton schools they attended from K thru 12.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
