Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

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.
