This school is nothing short of amazing. The teachers genuinely care about their students and work very hard to see them succeed. They have high expectations for student behavior and for academic progress. If a student is struggling, teachers will work to help them improve. For advanced students, the teachers also try to keep them ahead instead of just sitting back and letting them waste a year. The principal Mrs. Velasquez is very friendly and very approachable. One thing I would like to see is for the school to have the same principle for a while. Too many changes recently and the school could use a vice principal since there are so many students to attend to. But overall, I highly recommend the school
Hodge is the best elementary school in the Azusa district. My son was student body president last year(2012-2013). I'm so proud of him! Now I have a kindergartner headed for success too. Go cougars!!!!! :)
My daugter is part of the dual Spanish emersion program at this school and it really is amazing. The dual emersion program gives these students such an excellent opportunity to be bilingual at such a young age. The teachers are excellent and give their students valuable and challenging school work. I just love how involved the principle is and everyday I feel like she is among the students as a guide and role model. Im so happy we got to be part of this great school.
One has only the read the plethora of comments here by former students to see just how bad this school is. Look at all of their grammatical errors. I am a lifelong resident of Azusa. I have watched as the schools went down the drain from the 1980s on.

Victor Hodge is the #1 elementary school in Azusa! With an API of 834, Hodge school continues to make great academic strides year after year. Under the direction of Principal Christiane Garcia-Ayoub, Hodge has taken a turn for success. But she is not alone. Our students are blessed with extremely dedicated teachers who believe in them and help them take their education seriously. In addition to academic excellence, Hodge is a fun school. Yes, we have fun! Our PTA organizes many special events throughout the year that gives students and their parents opportunities to hang together and get to know each other in a relaxed environment. Last but not least, our school has made history with their cheerleading squad. The Hodge Cheerleaders have represented our school in many community-based events such as Azusa Golden Days Parade, Monrovia Christmas parade, our school family nights, our school funraising eat-out nights and most recently at MLK Jr. celebration at city hall where they received an award for their participation. Did I mention we're the #1 school in Azusa?!
