Hazen High School is a secondary school located in the Renton Highlands of Renton, Washington in the greater Seattle area.



Hazen High School is located in the Renton Highlands of Renton, Washington. Oliver M. Hazen, for whom Hazen High School is named, served as the Renton School District Superintendent from 1936-1966. Hazen High first opened its doors to students in 1968.[1] The Hazen Coat of Arms collectively portrays Renton’s coal mining and Boeing Aerospace connections alongside the school’s dedication to excel in pride, unity and achievement.

The Highlander was adopted as Hazen’s mascot with the colors green, gold, and blue to represent the new school. The Highland Clan sported green, gold and blue kilts on everything from cheerleader, basketball, and drill team uniforms to the Scottish mascot painted on the gym wall.

The Alma Mater, Green, Gold, and Blue

The greenwoods scent the dewy air where golden treasures lie,
Beneath the bonnie, bonnie blue in the land of Hazen High.
Whene’re a’roving far from thee to seek our fortunes due,
These golden hours the dearer be with the touch of green and blue.
So let there be no last farewell among the Highland Clan,
For Highland hearts will always dwell in the brotherhood of man.
So on our lips we seal our vow to be true to green, gold, and blue.

Fight Song

The Hazen Highlanders come down from the hill
Our loyal students cheer is one loud and shrill
Our adversaries will learn to fear our name
After hearing how we fight to win the game
So go, go you Highlanders for all Hazen High
Keep your banners high for all to see.
And they'll take the low road
And we'll take the high road
Back to Hazen with victory!
