This school is unprofessional and a joke. The principal Mark Newell doesn't know squat about being a good administrator. There is no real professional development to help teachers out.

Hawthorne High has always been over shadowed by the surroundings. It is a great school if you are willing to participate, the kids are great and very motivated. We also provide a wide array of innovative programs that emphasize on technology. We need more parent involvement.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
