    "This school is a great place to send your kids theirs academies that help students figure out their future. Mr.pacheco is a great teacher he helped me learn basic engineering skills and helped out 10 students get scholarships including myself. People talk bad about this school because of first impressions but don't judge a book by it's cover.teachers are awsome you just need to cooperate with them. Dr.newell is the best principle I ever had all students have so much respect for him. I just graduated from there and I am a proud Hawthorne graduate"

    "Most of the teachers are really bad, they don't put effort into their students and work. At this school, the teachers are either horrible, or if you're lucky, wonderful. I've been in classes where the teacher had loads of grammatical errors in their PowerPoint, faithfully. And the secretaries in the office are THE WORST. Lazy beyond belief. When I first enrolled into the school, they gave me and my mom the run around for at least a week when people came in for the first full week of school. They'd say, come back tomorrow, and you can finish getting this and that done, so that another secretary could be burdened by it since there were lots of students enrolling, but it was always morning time. Counselors have lost my papers for specific things, and since they didn't want to fill out paperwork for me to switch to Lloyd, they've said Lloyd isn't accepting or even Lloyd won't allow you because of absences. I've even had a counselor tell me come and see me tomorrow, then take off work the day of the appointment. When I was being transferred to be homeschooled, they tried to hold my transfers hostage saying I'd have to attend for x amount of days, when it was for money from the district."

    "Hawthorne High School is a great school to attend. Four of my children have attended this school, and out of that four three went on to college. One is now in the Airforce and the others are in school. This school did have a lot of good teachers about five years ago, but with budget cuts some were given pink slips. Hawthorne still have great teachers you just have to network to find who is who. There are good kids at this school and there are bad kids at this school as with anyhing nothings perfect. Dr. Newell is a great principal. At one point I had a problem with a teacher and the situation was handle well by Dr. Newell. He is fair and he doesn't tolerate nonsense. The kids really have a high respect for him and when he walks through the corridor they get their act together. I know from personal experience that this man will go above and beyond to protect these kids. Yes there are gangs and drugs. Once he is made aware of a problem even security that child is imediately removed. If you teach your kids who to pick and choose as their friends they'll enjoy this campus. If you let your child raise them self...good luck!"

    "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. Dr. Nicholas is also a joke. Nicholas has no teaching experience at all, she went from being a counselor to a teacher. Nicholas only knew George Zuk the special education director so she got the job. This school is a joke. There are some good teachers but the administration is pathetic."
