    "While some of the teachers are caring, the school overall is very subpar. I don't know what PTA the prior reviewer was involved in, but the parental involvement in this school is low, and unless parents volunteer their time without questioning anything, they are discouraged. The principal doesn't want to deal with confrontation, and seems more interested in doing what is minimally necessary rather than what is innovative or intellectually rigorous. Requests for the simplest changes are met with resistance. Education in the school is focused on serving the special needs and students who are struggling. Those students who could move faster are not allowed to work ahead, and being spread out one or two per class, isolates them and makes it more difficult for teachers to teach to them on their level. If your child has an IEP, it might be a good place to be, but if you have a high performing child, there's nothing offered here. If you want to try it out, I suggest getting used to fighting an uphill battle, and being VERY involved. The superintendent says she wants to improve the district- hopefully she can, as Hudson's future depends on it."

    "We have had a fantastic experience at this school so far. My daughter's teacher last year was amazing and very responsive to all student needs. My daughter learned a great deal and absolutely loves school, thanks to her wonderful experience at this school. I've gotten involved with the PTA and have found many other parents who are really involved with their children's education. I had heard both good and bad things from various people and am glad that we stayed in the district to find out for ourselves that there is nothing wrong with it! If you're afraid of diversity, this is not the place for you. But, as for me, I consider it a very big plus."
