Great school! The best kept secret on the Bayshore with small class sizes and that great community feeling. The faculty and staff know your child and what's going on with them.

I, a former student of HHRS, have decided to take the courtesy of writing my own review. I went to HHRS for about a year and a half, so therefor I made it through 7th and half of 8th grade. I started off in the honors class, which was okay, even though I struggled through the year, I still made A's and B's. But as 7th grade went on I started to notice that the teachers really didn't wanna teach, and we're in my opinion, just trying to make it through the day. Yelling at the student, being extremely unfair and aggrivated. Accept for 1 teacher, our Social Studies teacher, he was an inspiration for me to work hard. The honors classes also, unfairly, reward the kids who are doing great, and give no support what so ever to the kids who are struggling, or giving up.

HHRS is a small school which is trying its best--however, its best is often not enough. Teachers, especially those in the History and English departments, often do not know what they are talking about. I've seen students in my class be silenced when they knew more information about a particular topic than the teacher. The languages department is also lacking--the only in-school language class is Spanish! HHRS will also place the higher-scoring students in so-called Honors classes. However, the work is generally the same expected of the non-Honors students! Do not be fooled by the rigor described in the course catalog.

Well, my second son has now been graduated from Henry Hudson. I was very satisfied with the education both of my boys received at Hudson. I feel the guidance department was wonderful with helping the kids apply for colleges. I am glad I made the choice to send both of my boys to Hudson. I do not have anything negative to say about this experience.

Some teachers here clearly are idiots, others are clearly dedicated and hard working. So it's a mixed bag. They could be 'harder' on the students in the Honors program, the reading lists are simplistic and there's no other word for them. But all the teachers also seem to offer personal attention. Extracurrics are somewhat limited by school size and budgetary considerations. Parental involvement seems to be real and strong. however. My main concern is that, when the school has a few genuinely outstanding students (as I believe my child is), the administration won't work hard enough in tandem with parents to help get that child into as good a college as possible, and with as much financial aid (we'll need it!) as possible. That major caveat aside, I think HHRS tries its best.

As a parent of a 10th grader I can only say good things about Hudson. My son is encouraged to explore his interests in sports and music as well as academic subjects. Yes, the school is small. I for one think that's a good thing. As with most schools these days, there is never enough money; the booster club has to work hard to support the kids. About the high turnover, well that is to be expected in such a small school; can't afford to keep teachers who can do better money wise in other districts. However, this does not mean there are no experienced dedicated teachers. There are many! Kudos to Mr. Elliot, the dedicated and long serving band teacher. He's a special man. I would rather send my child to a school where everyone knows his name than to a factory disguised as a school.

As an alumni, I can say I am proud of what the staff at Henry Hudson has done for me. My aunts and uncles are also Henry Hudson Alumni, and all will say the same. The quality of the teacher/student relationship is genuine, and went a long way when i need help understanding the meaning of Shakespears work or the time it took a train to get from A to B if it went so fast. The school is small, and thrives more so on its artistic, creative, and learning/teaching abilities than athletic competition. I wasn't involved in any of the sports, so i cant comment much on that end. You should have no worries about sending your children to this school, as staff are very involved with their students and do not favor one student over the next.

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.
