Ms Hamm, my daughter's first grade teacher at Hudson elementary school, Long Beach, Ca., is a wonderful, thoughtful, and caring teacher. Not only has she helped many students in the class, including several students who could not speak English at the beginning of the year, to reach grade level competency in reading and writing; my daughter has gone from being below grade level regarding reading and writing, and is now at 2nd grade level. Ms Hamm is very competent in all areas of teaching, patient, and has a wonderful way of interacting with her students. She also always has time for parent questions, explanations, and returns calls and emails within a few hours. She encourages the children to always have faith and self confidence in themselves; providing the opportunity for them to correctly deal with conflicts, teaching them the importance of a healthy diet and exercise, and always demonstrating these behavior's herself. She often brings in fruits and vegetables for the children to sample, and my daughter has gone from disliking all fruits and vegetables to eating them everyday. Ms. Hamm is a wonderful example of a well rounded, and very competent teacher, and my daughter has been blessed to have her as her first grade teacher!
This school is great they are very organized and helpful.The teachers are great and spend so much time with the children. The children feel safe with lots of parent involvment and security. The principle is very supportive and the staff very nice.I love this school for it's welcoming feel.
As a student currently attending Hudson, I believe that it is one of the best public schools in Long Beach. I have been attending Hudson since kindergarten and have experienced all that the school can provide to their students and also their parents. The students at this school are also taught well by their teachers and receive adequate student-teacher attention. The friendships made at this school will surely last a lifetime. Go Hawks!
The school has 2 magnet programs, EXCELL & SHARP. Most of the teachers are very experienced and work well with the students. Some of the office staff leave something to be desired, but are efficeint enough. It's a k-8 school with appx 1200 students. My son has had great success there. There is no PTA, only a school site council that meets once a month on Wed. @ 3:30, I can never make it, so I don't know what's going on most of the time.
This scholl is the greatest school I've ever been to. It is very orginized and it is high in tolerence.Their attitude against students are great.The extra activities are great, it gives students a chance to stay out of the streets and out of gangs. I went to this school before I had to move to Shreveport and i was there since knidergarten, I just want to say this school is the best school of all the lunch is good and their prices are decent. This school should be voted number one of all other schools,They are the most distinguished(sorry if I spelled that wrong)school of all.Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Aryka Williams
