Hudson middle school is one of the better pasco schools they is,it's ok learning could be better the work is to easy that's why I'm getting honored classes for 7th grade but I really like Mr.gray 6th grade world history over all it's well put together and you always see the principals ps they is a lot of bad in 6th grade

Hudson middle school, was by far, THE best school I could of went to. The faculty was amazing and the teachers know what they are doing. A good teacher I recommend meeting would be Mr. Field (English, 7th grade) he understands how to help a student evolve for a greater education. But I recommend Hudson middle school over all others, 5 stars.

We are very loving and caring faculty/staff and we want all of our students to be successful in life.

Mr. Van Gorden sets the tone for the campus. He does a great job. The school is clean and well maintained. The teachers work hard to help the students. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I have 2 children, one now out of this middle school and 1 currently still there. The teachers are the best assest of this school - very understanding and knowledgeable. But the administration can not seem to get a handle on the disciplinary problems, if they could this environment would be much better suited for learning.

I think that Hudson Middle School has one of the best Band programs around, all of their extracurricular's are wonderful, their arts and sports are also done very well. Mr. Keon in band however, gives a outstanding level of commitment to the school. Hudson Middle has the same academic programs you will find at all the public middle schools in Pasco County, but the teachers are committed to helping the students achieve academic success. Hudson is a poorer community, but they strive for excellence in all they do. The parents stay involved through all levels of school. I always expected to find no one at open houses, pta, etc. Often there were more then my sister would tell me showed up at her elementary school in Md.!

Wonderful school. Administrators are knowledgeable as are the faculty. Every effort is made to accomodate the needs of the student and parent, with the student's academic success is first and foremost their primary concern. This school recognizes the significant contributions the parent and community can make to the overall success of the school, as a reflection of that community's image and future. The teacher's make every effort to open the lines of communications with parents.

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
