Ok im a student here and i LOVE it. The teachers arnt strict at all unless you REALLY want to make them mad. It isnt too strict so i have no idea about what others are saying... I am currently in Honors band and the teachers are really great. So overall the teachers are great, they are just doing there job, we dont do belts anymore (As far as i know) and you dont get a detention the FIRST time a teacher see you untuck your shirt (Guys). Many kids get by most of the time. And for the parent that said that the honors program is ridicules.... seriously honors english and regular english is a big step and regular vs honors... sure you get more work and yes they teach you almost the exact thing but in a week or two ADVANCE and so your going a lot faster pace and getting a lot more practice (Like practicing for band.) or else your going to fail. They do give you different stuff than regular but its not gonna be a jump to another grade if you know what i mean. So hope this helps i would totally recommend this school and for the fact that you dont have to wear stupid uniforms and yet people are still complaining about that there kids get detention from untucking there shirts.... ugh
Thi is a terrible school! Do not send your child here! I have had two attened this school so far and am trying to transfer the second. Unless your child is in the band they dont really care about them. The sports program is a joke!!! They do not care about sports at all. Their coaches do not have a clue. The honors program is rediculous. All they do is teach the exact same curriculum as the regular classes and give lots more homework! Silly If you happen to be in the Cirle of friends your slild will reep the benefits(Teachers friends)
Its a really good school you get the academics the students need to graduate middle school
I have a daughter that goes here and is on the volleyball team, and the coaches are excellent. My daughter loves the teachers too.
I have a son at hudson and I believe he is getting a quality education. The teachers their go far and beyond to educate thier students, especially the 8th grade math teachers. If you child attends I suggest Mr. Gaines for math. He is very strict and business like, and explains the information well to the students. Although, he does give a lot of homework. It is needed, my son now has an A average in High School Math.
I currently have a 7th grader attending Hudson. He is active in the band, athletics, and honors classes. The leadership at Hudson have set a high standard for dress, behavior and performance. The school facilities are well maintained and the staff work well with the students.
My daughter attended this school for her middle school term and for the most part things are okay here. Most of her teachers were great, but my daughter doesn't really need a lot of help and excels at most of whatever is put in front of her.
Although my daughter had a hard time adjusting to the strick rules and regulations at this school, I really feel that she has grown so much this year already. She is much more organized and much more self reliant than she ever was in elementary school. Hudson has and excellent academic program, and although the discipline seems a little strict, it teaches the kids to be responsible. I have no doubt that my daughter will be 100% prepared for high school when the time arrives and am very glad that she has the opportunity to get her education at this school.
Hudson takes discipline too far. While I am in favor of discipline, I think Hudson goes to the extreme. My child left his paper in his locker and asked to get it. When he returned his score was reduced by 50% due to it being 10 minutes late. Come on...do the teachers not ever forget things or make mistakes? Should a child really be given detention for not tucking in their shirt? Lighten up! These kids won't have any desire to continue their education if they are made to hate it before they reach high school. I have no complaints about the academic program at Hudson. Most of the teachers seem very competent, but are very difficult to reach via phone.
Parents beware! I believe in discipline, but Hudson takes it way too far. If your child forgets homework or untucks their shirt, it's detention. If your child talks in class, written detention. My child used to love to write, but now hates it due to the ridiculous 4 page handwritten detentions that are due the next day in addition to 2 hours of homework. My child used to love going to school, but now hates it due to the non-nurturing prisonlike environment at Hudson Middle School. Good luck contacting teachers since they have no voice mail system! So much for the parent/teacher relationship. I hope your child has a better experience than mine has!
