I moved an hour away from Vancouver in my junior year and had to stop attending Hudsons Bay. I love my new school, but i cant help missing the atmosphere and the people at Bay. I feel as though Bay is the best high school i have attended, and the teachers really made me feel important and that i could achieve my dreans. I would like to say thank you to Mrs. Morrison because she was one of the main reasons i even went to school.

Well What Can I Say About This School. Im Not A Really Smart Kid And All So I Wouldnt Really Know About The Academics Here. But The People Here Are Amazing And Are Very Accepting. This School Is Probably A Good Choice For Students Who Are New To Vancouver And Dont Have Any Friends. I Have A Bunch Of Friends Here Now And Freshman Year I Had None... So As I Said Before I Highly Recommend This School For Students Who Are New To Vancouver.

I go to school here and I am overall satisfied to call myself an Eagle. My son and I are in the GRADS program, where I can take him and put him in lisenced childcare and then go to class as usual, having one class in the daycare with my son. I think this school is the best i've been to.

I am a former student and current parent of a student attending HBHS. I believe the commitment level of the teachers, staff, students and community to be top notch at this school. It has always pleased me that so many former students have gone back to teach, coach or volunteer.

I am a student here at bay, and our school has a lot worse of a reputation than most other schools. Since our school has an on-campus day care, most teen parents attend our school, and other schools look down upon that, even though I think that it is a wonderful idea. Overall, this is a very good school. It's not what people say that it is.

At first I was very happy with the school and that they seemed open to working with my special needs child--he has ADHD, which requires a lot of strong boundary setting, encouragement and constant reminders. As he fell behind I went to discuss a plan with teachers. Only one slightly followed through with the 'let me know immediately what he needs to do plan through email.' And that one class is the only one he passed! I am very angry with the 'partnership' breakdowns. Here I am willing to be an active partner but the school will not comply. Also, discipline and the words used to kids who have only a small infractions is very nonproductive and only demotivates kids. Is this a plan to move out kids who are not the best to bring up scores? I have to wonder!

I am a HBHS grad, and I can't say enough about the teachers there at Bay. When I ever I needed help they would stay after and help me till I got it. They were always personable. Although the sports programs were not always on the winning side during my time there the coaches always kept a positive out look on things. They made sure we knew that it wasn't just about playing and learning a game. It was also about learning how to be accountable, and learning other life lessons. I can't think of place more friendly or dedicated to the kids and the community that I would have rather spent my four years of school in.

I have great respect for the teachers, admin., staff and couches at Bay. I have made a point to get to know all my kids teachers and coaches and have been quite impressed. I also love the diversity of students on campus. I volunteer on campus often and have been impressed with the quality of staff/student interaction. Great school!!!!

Hudson's Bay High School offers a quality education by encouraging diversity, community building and compassion. The teachers and curriculum are outstanding, and the staff is supportive and encouraging. I can not imagine a finer school anywhere.

The 'hidden secret' among Vancouver's high schools, Bay has the strongest faculty I've experienced in seven years of contact with all area high schools. It's a truly diverse school, and the morale among staff at Bay is outstanding (and unusual). There's a notable lack of politics at Bay, which leads to increased support and cooperation. There's also more of a 'community feel' in interactions between students, teachers and staff. I don't know why Hudson's Bay stands out in these areas, but it does seem like a very comfortable, healthy environment for both genuinely motivated students and developing students.

Despite the fact that there're many students, I believe the school is okay. However, I have two major concerns. First-the school s disciplinary system needs to be reviewed. I don't believe that a child should be suspended over smallest issues, like allegedly leaving class 5 minutes early. I don't believe teachers give enough warnings to students. In fact, some teachers don't give warnings at all nor do they try to discuss problems w/students before they just turn it to administration. Second-the school s teachers don't communicate with the parents who are open and willing to communication. Again, they would rather turn it to administration. I understand the disciplinary needs to be 'consistent' but communication should be-first. It doesn't seem fair that a child caught leaving campus should have the same punishment as a child who leaves class a few minutes early. Should a sex-offender have the same punishment as someone who runs-a-stoplight?

Hudson's Bay doesn't have the good learning environment of many other schools in the district. My daughter knows many people from other schools and apparently Bay has the worst reputation in the district. I don't think that the academic or the athletic programs are up to par. I wish that I could be comfortable sending my kids to this school, but I'm not. I do not believe that they will get the proper education.

Teachers take a real interest in each students academic success. They motivate the students to look beyond high school and encourage them to plan for their future. My daughter started Bay last year and she has had the support of teachers and counselors in her transition to a new school from out of state. She has developed friendships with her peers quickly and she absolutely loves the school. She has the opportunity to participate in the running start program next year and she is focused on college and excelling in her academics. Great school!
