Andries Hudde I.S 240 is good school for sending your child. Hudde can give 100% safe in because it has everything to keep its student safe. Hudde have special ed class for people with disabilities and it have gifted program classes. Hudde is an equal school that have no interfere about clothes, ethnicity, color, and race.

I am 2013 graduate of Andries Hudde, if your planning on sending your child to this school don't it may sound like a terrific school at first but its not. The children are horrible its filled with violence and gang activity, some of the teachers do not care for the students, and some teachers lack the knowledge to even teach the children. The mayor has done the best thing ever by shutting this school down and making it into a charter school maybe it will approve academic wise but it wont change the behavior of the children.


Posted January 23, 2012

I'm writing this from a limited perspective and it is possible that with time I would see something that failed to catch my attention in the short time I spent in the school. That said, the administration at this school is completely unsupportive to their staff. I can not believe some of the things that were said to me in a situation where professional support and leadership was direly needed in order to benefit the staff and the students. The students run wild (with the exception of the gifted classes), hit one another, and the racial slurs are out of hand. Horrible.

I am a former teacher of this school and I can honestly say that this school needs to have an overhaul. Some of the teachers here know their material and can teach it well if given the chance (this may happen if your child is in the SIG Classes). The leadership in this school is lacking and very unprofessional. They treat the teachers poorly as well as many of the students. The academics in this school is a joke. If you want your child to do 5th grade work in 7th grade then this would be the school for you. While teachers may try to give 7th grade work the administration tells them (the teachers) the students are not capable of doing the work. There is a lot of violence in this school and inappropriate language all around. As a teacher at this school I felt like I was in purgatory and could not wait until my day was over. I have never felt like this in any other school I taught in. Please stay far away from this school.

To tell the truth, this school is terrible. There are to much fights going on in there. People coming home with back eyes.

My school is okay but it is not all that. At least that is what i think. The teachers and the principal and the assistant principal are great but something just does not make it right. Don't know. But it is okay.

Im a student at hudde, this is my last year here. The academic at hudde is great. I'm in the top class in 8th grade. Ive been in advanced biology, and now currently advanced earth science. The teachers are all right. The problem is that the school is not very clean at times. Also the school funding is poor and cheap, because there are alot of materials needed for AP classes and we cant do labs because of lack of money. With economic crisis this year, fundings have been cut greatly. This school is not my zone school, and i dont really mind, i take the bus, and this school was worth the good and bad memories. Hudde is a good choice academically, a very smart school it is. Just some problems needing to be done. Note y the school building is shaped like an H, funny to get lost in!

I think this school is quite good when it comes to gifted programs which are CIG, MAGNET, and NOVA . The curriculem is ok and THE Language Arts are exceptionally good. There are related arts to choose from such as art, band, orchestsra, chores, and dance. There are languages include Spanish and French. Programs such as Honor Roll and Arista are availble to 7th and 8th grade students. The down side of this school is that it is dirty and unclean. Since I am speaking from the point of view of a 'gifted' student, mainstream and special education students are...disruptive and may not be included in certain activities that gifted are included in. To enter a gifted program, you must take a test in 5th grade.

I am a parent of a male child who attend Andries Hudde school, and I must say that I am very very disapointed with the progress that my child has made during the one year period he attended. My score for this school is three star,

There are too many fights and confronttations with my son and all he is learning is how to write his heading he is never challenged and also, he has a lot of diffuculty with his home work.

I removed my child from the school to be home schooled because I do not feel he should be subject to violence as a part of his education.

Posted July 15, 2004

My son just completed 7th grade in the school's magnet program. The school is tracked and I can't speak for the school as a whole but the Magnet classes have been great for him. He just passed the NY Regents in biology. He is on track for taking the math regents in 8th grade. He travels to the school by bus from out of district and it's worth it. He has made friends. We particularly love the orchestra. He came into 6th grade with no music background and has been taking the cello for two years now. This is a school worth considering.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
