    "White students and wealthy students seemed to enjoy this school more and got better treatment across the board so if you are not white or don;t plan on being a major sponsor at the school it can be a rough ride. The school is now getting a new director so maybe things will change."

    "Some teachers are great at this school but those are only a select few and as the years gone by since I graduated I have seen more and more of the phenomenal and skilled teachers leave and be replaced by standard, if not mediocre teachers."

    "Many teachers are the best teachers I've ever had in the respective subject fields. However, there are a few bad apples that were just hired because they were friends of the principal, and while they might be knowledgeable in a field, they were not the vest teachers."

    "The school's science department is not the best, but I learned to appreciate it and get interested in engineering. I created lifelong bonds with many of the teachers, and I still keep in touch with many of them."

    "The faculty here is incredible- supportive, driven, eager to push each pupil to his/her best. And teachers are not limited to the classroom: during their free periods, they can often be seen engaging in intensive discussions and intellectual dialogues with their students. Other reviews have stressed the rigorous coursework and college preparatory focus; all of this is true, but I think the Hudson School goes even beyond that. Unlike many other "elite" private institutions, where each student follows the school's "one size fits all" mold of what education should be, Hudson students are pushed to actively shape their academic experiences. It is not rare for upperclassmen to propose and design their own courses, working closely with teachers in that field. The individual's passions and capabilities are prioritized above all else; no learning opportunity is sacrificed for bureaucratic expedience. In addition, due to the school's size, most classes take on a seminar format, cultivating critical thinking and expression abilities over regurgitation and textbook learning. As a result, I've found that the "regular" courses here tend to be more sophisticated than the standard AP curriculum. Case in point: I've been able to take AP's cold, not even reading over the syllabus, and get 5's with the training from my Hudson classes. Finally, the Hudson School is one of the most accepting communities I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. It really is as close to a safe haven from bullying and arbitrary student hierarchies as you can physically get. Corny as i sounds- being different isn't stigmatized, it's embraced. And students are treated like real people, not just numbers and statistics. Ultimately, I do not think any other school could have opened up the myriad opportunities Hudson has for me- intellectually, academically, philosophically, creatively, socially, personally. It truly is a special place."
