My son had gotten scholarships to two local catholic high schools but choose to attend Hen Hud because of its extensive offerings of AP and Honors classes. He loves all his teachers and most of them are very passionate about what they teach. It is also one of the few schools in the area to offer an engineering program and a biomedics program. The principal has always been very responsive. School spirit is very high which is nice. Yes there are those few kids who do not care about school but you will find that in any public school. So far he is very happy with his decision to go to Hen Hud.

Hen Hud is like most school districts- the students will get out of it exactly what they put into it. Parents must be involved and not leave everything up to teachers. There are plenty of programs, classes, clubs, etc. for all and certainly the achievers can find ample challenging opportunities. The HS Principal does not offer much of a personality but the new Superintendent is very engaged and he is more than willing to speak with parents at any time to listen to both issues and commendations. BTW, there are good and bad in every profession, education being no different.

Faculty is dedicated to the students' welfare and the kids get a good education. Parents are much more involved than many other school districts. Strong community involvement and very good graduation rate. The principal is working towards improving school quality and cares about the students, but does not have a warm demeanor with parents.

Hen Hud is a great place for my children. There are many honors and AP offerings, though a few more choices could be included (perhaps because of the states 2% tax cap, there aren't enough teachers or those with experience in the non-core courses). But my kids love it and if we could pass a bond to update the auditorium, arts and music facilities and the athletic fields, I would give it 5 stars.

I have been a part of 9 different school districts. This has definitely be one of the higher end, most community-involved I have ever been a part of. Nearly every teacher that I've had the pleasure of associating with has been phenomenal. Sure, statistically speaking, there will always be a teacher or two in a district that a parent becomes unhappy with, but you can't judge a whole district based upon that. I've seen teachers take extra steps beyond the expected roles of a teacher and make a difference in my child's life. The district strives to make the schools better and aims to stay on the cutting edge. They understand how their children are responding to the curriculum by administering their own tests, reviewing the results, and adjusting accordingly.

Both my children went through this District from k-12. Now graduates of College and Graduate School. I can say they received an excellent education and wonderful experiences. They were fully prepared to perform very well in College, Graduate School and now in the work place. As young adults, they both have jobs and support themselves. I credit this District for much of my children's success.

Wonderful, caring teachers. Lots of community involvement, particularly in the elementary schools (could be better at BMMS and the high school). Wide variety of classes for all learning types. Will be even better when the bond passes!

Hen Hud is a great school district. Although we have had our issues in the past it is still a great place to learn. I believe that the majority of the teachers care about the best interests of us the students. There are also a wide range of classes offered that can keep you occupied and help to develope your abilities and interests

Been involved with the district for 15plus, seem many chances, most for the better. HS the teacher are just there to collect a paycheck at this point. Principal needs to be change again! Many dissatified staff and parents. The school lost its meaning of educated!!

i am a little upset with some of the events that happened this year. the ap physics trip was cancled which my son was looking foward too all year. from what i know the football team stinks and yet gets a majortiy of the money, while my son on track who went to nationals had to throw on a circle that should have been replaced years ago. in addition, he had to figth with jv and little league softball for time on the field. The band was underfunded while they were asked to play at most high school events.

Hen Hud gives many opertunities to all their students. Many different classes to choose from in the High School. Overall, a wide varried selection, but it is better for above average students. Hendrick Hudson High School believes in the arts and allows all students to take part in them often having many classes in art, music, and technology. They just renovated the whole basement, devoting it entirely to arts. The sport teams don't have the best record but they try hard. I think Hendrick Hudson is a wonderful school for my family.

there are a broad range of academic programs that are offered here, all are of well intent. However, many are just introduction programs. Music, art and sports are abundant and parental involvement is probably medium.

School is beginning to embrace a more inclusive approach to education. Beside the array of AP classes available, now 9th and 10th grade SPED kids work in a collaborative setting. Alternative Academy launched in 2004-2005. Loss of Principal was a big blow, but Superintendent's are progressive.

The school offers a wide range of academic programs as well as diversified sports activities. The school has recently excelled in volley ball and soccer. It encourages non athletic extra curricular activities as well. I am familiar with its debate team which has excelled for several years and has a national reputation. Academically, Hen Hud is certainly adequate. It's been said the school offers much to its academically superior students and to those of special needs, with the mid range student sometimes getting lost in the shuffle. I have not experienced that personally, however. Like most schools you must sift through the faculty and if possible, pick and choose those most suitable for your child. The school has had a frequent change in principals in recent years and could use some stability in that regard. The school is in themidst of a multi-million dollar building project which is enhancing the facilities.
