I used to attend this school. It's a very small school located in a church basement and the next door mansion. Classrooms are small. There's no actual English teacher, science teacher, history teacher, etc. Education is relied upon a Beka/BJU home school videos. No student-student, group projects, and teacher-student interaction going on in class since students mainly listen to a video. Any questions the student may have, may or not be aided depending on whether the actual grade teacher/facilitator knows the material. Science labs are limited or absent. Staff is limited, few have the certificates/degrees in education. Extracurricular activities are nonexistent. But if you would sacrifice all that for a Christian education, then choose this school.The teachers are very kind and concerned about student's spiritual lives. But if you're looking for high quality education along with a Christian education, maybe there's something better out there. The school is great until middle and high school.
Definitely NOT enough. Homework is like read pages 25-29 and answer question 1-5 in the short answer. I feel like there should be more projects, more group activities, pair work. When students graduate, they need to realize that in college, knowing how to work well with other students is very important. Definitely not taught at this school.
The school is set up in an interesting way. It's not very intellectually challenging in any way. There no projects or labs or events that go on alongside the classes. So students aren't really pushed to become well-rounded people.
Hudson View Christian Academy is a small religious school one block off of Broadway in North Yonkers. The school teaches the core curriculum materials well as verified by standardized teaching and emphasizes character development and Biblical teaching. That along with small classrooms and dedicated staff are its strengths. Its weaknesses would be its facilities, overemphasis of video teaching especially in the upper grades, almost total lack of extracurricular activities including P.E., and possible deficiencies in staff credentialing. Considering this is a private school with no government assistance, the cost of tuition for a parent with Christian concerns still make this a viable option. As with all reviews, do your OWN research.
The school has dedicate teachers who have all been here for over 10 years. The curriculum is excellent the mixed grade classes work surprisingly well. It helps both struggling and advanced students. My son is graduating after 13 years there. He is well prepared for going into the world and living for Christ.
