    "We are glad to have the opportunity to tell other parents of our experience at Hudson. We hope our input helps parents direct their kids to success. Overall, we are not happy at Hudson for three reasons: 1) There are very few exceptionally bright children. Most of them are quite average and we agree that they ride on success of the very few smart ones 2) The school lacks true diversity and so many of the kids come from the same boring "well to do" families. 3) There is a large percentage of bratty, misbehaved, and bully types of children at the school. Interestingly, they are smart enough to wear their "well mannered" faces when parents, teachers, or adults are around. The sad truth about this school is that the school is producing the average. Their reputation outside of Hudson County isn't that respected and we now understand why. If you truly have a bright child and want her/him exposed to diversity and challenge, Hudson is not the place for your family."

    "As for the HIGH SCHOOL, here are the pluses: It's very very diverse -demographically, socially and academically. Your child will feel freer to explore who s/he is, rather than fit into a box. Some teachers will go out of their way to help your child. And the school has a remarkably good record in terms of college acceptances. The negatives: The school's leadership is lacking and has blinders on. A few teachers get away with not doing very much teaching at all. [If the administration reads this: it's really time to overhaul the Without Walls class. ] The bottom line: Not perfect by a long shot. This is not an "elite" private school. BUT if your child needs an environment that isn't a pressure cooker, and you're looking for a place where s/he could find his/her voice, this could be a good place."

    "Our experience at the school has been somewhat disappointing. When we enrolled two years ago, we were under the impression that the school was for exceptionally bright children. What we found in actuality was that the school holds (and accepts) a majority of average children and a few that are exceptional. As a result, the few highly intelligent carry the weight of the average in terms of high test scores and awards. We came to realize that most kids we know get "accepted" into the school with ease and that most of them are not gifted in anyway, especially academically. We are writing this review so that no other parents go through what we have to go through looking for another school that is more challenging because we believed all the talk and chatter of the school's uniqueness and high standards. What you have at Hudson are a mostly average kids with supportive parents with the money to pay the tuition."

    "The Hudson School offers an incredibly unique academic experience. As a high school student here, I am still impressed with the myriad course options available. In addition to its rigorous academics, the school truly focuses on educating the whole child. Hudson's overall atmosphere is laid-back and supportive. The teachers want you to do well, and above all, learn and understand. The student body is very diverse; I have friends from all different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. While I did not attend Hudson's middle school, I can easily say that it looks like an incredible academic experience. The middle school has a unique curriculum that prepares its students for top high schools, just as the high school prepares its students for admission to rigorous colleges. If I were to sum up a Hudson School education, I would say the following: The Hudson School offers a "real-learning" experience. The English teachers teach how to write effectively; the Math department teaches students how to think like mathematicians, and so on. Critical thinking and community are the most defining elements of the school. It's too unique to describe--I encourage you to come check it out."
