Welcome to Hazard Independent Schools


     Thank you for visiting our website! As we continue in this school year we look forward to serving our students and community. As we enter our 105th year of educating the children of southeastern Kentucky, we can look both to the past and to the future to understand that excellence is the hallmark of the Hazard Independent School district. Many students in our schools have achieved high honors both academically and athletically throughout their time in our district.

In the past Kentucky state assessments, Hazard Independent School District was a High Performing District and ranked in the 91 percentile.  Hazard High School was a School of Distinction ranking in the 97 percentile of high schools across the state.  The elementary and middle schools received proficient rankings.  Athletically, our Bulldogs have won at both district and regional levels in several sports throughout the years. Our award winning Band of Gold consistently receives high rankings at state competition.  

     Hazard Independent Schools offer a variety of extracurricular activities for our students. They include the Academic team, Avian team, Speech, Football, Basketball, Baseball, Cheerleading, Track, Golf, Volleyball, S.T.L.P. and Soccer.
