    "Although not a bad school overall, I did notice and encounter some hang ups as a parent while my child was attending. With that said, school event fees were over the top (esp for the seniors) and found questionable, the school lacked showing how much the students were appreciated during their senior year, and last but not least, the school administration can greatly benefit from evaluating the teachers more often both with and without notice during their class sessions. I had a very big problem with one teacher who almost had me make it my mission in seeing her "walk" after I realized this specific teacher was targeting and setting up my overachiever child for failure, yet praising the delinquents for misconduct during class! Lets just say, I commend the administration team for handling that matter sooner than later and bottom line,"

    "As a parent of a "special needs" child I was thrilled when my daughter received that "stamp of approval" letter stating that she had been accepted to this great high school! In order to attend Hodgson Vo-Tech a child needs to have laid out the groundwork for acceptance long before the actual application process! Hodgson Vo-Tech is NOT exclusionary to any child, but as a parent it sure is nice to know that each years incoming Freshman class earned their spot! Prior to submitting their application eachchild must create an essay stating WHY they want to attend Hodgson. Incoming students must also possess both an academic and disciplinary record showing that they are consistently able to respect themselves and others. That is a nice thought knowing that potentially disruptive children are not distracting others! Both the educational and directorial/clerical staff are unwaveringly dedicated and accountable in guiding your childs education in order to reach his or her personal goals! I highly recommend this school."

    "I love hodgson. My oldest son is a junior there and is doing well. i love the envireonment, the teachers and the expectation that is set for students is high but realistic. My son is planning to study pre-med in college and i believe he will do well because of the preparation from Hodgson. Dont get me wrong, this is not an academic aggresive environment like a private school but its not only the school who should influence a childs aceademic progress but the parent as well."

    "My oldest son attends Hodgson. He is a part of the class of 2010. He is actively involved in sports. He has done well there. The teachers are excellent. He is involved in his trade and he loves it. Most parents feel as though voc-tech schools do not prepare their child for college. I am so sorry that they feel this way. My son has taken advanced courses and he is definitely being challenged. The only fault that I have is the block scheduling. My son did not get math this year until the 3rd marking period. Too close to the DSTP's."

    "I'm a student at Hodgson. I love this school the teachers really try to help you pass their class. You have to show that you want it though and try really hard. Parents, this would be a great school for you children. It also has great career programs. The only thing wrong with the school is the principal."
