The third largest school district in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, the District extends from I-70 on the west and the I-270 bridge on the east, covering 78 square miles, an area larger than the City of St. Louis.
Its northern and southern boundaries are the two Great Rivers, the Missouri and the Mississippi, and I-270.
The district includes the communities of Hazelwood, Black Jack, and Spanish lake; a large section of the city of Florissant; portions of the cities of Bridgeton, Bellefontaine Neighbors, and Ferguson; and several square miles of unincorporated St. Louis County.
Its residents are a composite of the entire region, ranging from the professional to the semiskilled, people whose homes vary from rambling estates to modest frame bungalows or small apartments.
The Hazelwood name comes from a farm once located close to Lambert St. Louis International Airport which has an unusual amount of hazel bushes. Hazelwood traces its origin to the reorganization of Elm Grove School late in 1949. One by one, 12 more small districts joined the new Hazelwood School District and, early in 1952, the consolidation was complete.
The District's first graduating class received its diplomas at the original Hazelwood High School (located in what is now Kirby Junior High) in 1956.
