Our children have done very well at Hudsonville High. We greatly appreciate the teachers willingness to work with our daughter to ensure that she is challenged and able to achieve the high level of success that she sets for herself. The ability to test out of classes and work ahead has been wonderful. She has also been supported to be a part of an athletic team that although she doesn't necessarily help in earning points for the team she is treated as an integral part of the team and with great respect. They definately prepare our kids to be hard workers and achieve to their level. If a child wants to learn they will be supported! If they want to particpate they are welcomed! Parental support and high expectations are often needed for a student to achieve ultimate success and this is encouraged at Hudsonville.

I would not recommend this school district to anyone. The high school has no standards when it comes to absences.The students are allowed to miss as many days as they please with no consequences even when they get into the 40 and 50 days absent. Senior students are graduating without real capacity for the world outside of school. Too many students are failing class after class and being allowed to make up more than half their credit load by doing E 2020 classes online. I would never move into this district if I had it to do all over again. Very disappointed with overall attitude of many high school staff.

AWESOME! We were new to HHS in 2003-2004. The staff and teachers were excellent in communicating to us as well as being interested in our children. We moved to Hudsonville so our children could attend this school district and we are glad we did. Keep up the good work. The students were also very receptive and though there are clique's (as in any school) most seem to respect each other.

I am a 2003 graduate of Hudsonville High School. I have only good things to say about this school, and the staff. All of the teachers go above and beyond the call of duty to be sure the students are prepared for the outside world.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
