“At Hazel Park, it’s kind of fun. Sometimes it can be hard, like all the work we’re doing. And sometimes you can get mad easily as a student because stuff happens during class. But mostly it’s fun. My biggest challenge is not getting in trouble in class. It can be as simple as not doing your work -- that’s pretty hard. History is one of my hardest classes because he gives us work everyday and it’s hard. Gym is my favorite, favorite subject. I like playing basketball. We play basketball a lot. I like doing Pacer, it’s a fitness test. You have to run back and forth in the gym, as many times as you can and I got 130. This is a pretty nice school. I like this school.” -- Ty, eighth-grader at Hazel Park Preparatory Academy.
