We decided to pull our child out of this school because of academic issues. Our concerns about him not understanding the work went unanswered for more than a week. Despite failing numerous math tests, his final report card shows a passing grade. The school lacks communication skills.

We had a hard time with two teachers responding to our concerns on multiple issues. On numerous occasions, our emails went unanswered. Our requests for a conference were denied. When we finally connected with one teacher, he denied our child was confused in math, despite struggling during homework. Another parent mentioned lack of leadership from those in charge...it is very obvious.

My children no longer attend EP Rock, but when we moved to Hudson from MN my years of begging for help for my oldest stopped. I was surprised when the school called me and said they could help. I didn't have to call and beg for extra help. He went up 4 levels of reading in 2 years! It was hard work, but everyone at the school wanted him to succeed, including an adult mentor to help him with shyness. I now volunteer with the mentor program and see nothing but positive effort being given to the children. Even the lunch room monitors know the kids' names. My sons are now in middle school, and my oldest is not shy and is doing very well in all his classes. I am so glad we moved here and my children attended EP Rock.

Our family had to move to EP Rock when new boundaries were set due to River Crest. With already having a child in school at Prairie; we did not take to this well. However, we made the move and it was the best thing for not only our daughter that was in 2nd grade, but our son who would be starting school. I became involved as a member of the parent group, and assisting in the school when needed. This is where I saw firsthand what wonderful leadership and teachers Rock had. I was so proud my children were receiving their elementary education here. Being part of the parent group, I worked very close with the principal. I was amazed every day at her passion for the students, and the support she gave to the teachers and parents of the students. The teachers I cannot say enough good about. They always go above and beyond and are true passionate mentors. They too, always have the best interest of the student in mind. My last child will leave EP ROCK this spring, and the reality is I will be very sad. EP ROCK has been a true gift to our family. My children have built many relationships, have wonderful memories, and most importantly both have gained remarkable educations.

Completely agree with the previous review. There is very little leadership from those in charge at this school. The school atmosphere has become increasingly negative. The teachers and activities are top notch. I've known several families that have changed schools in the past three years, mine included, because of the decline in leadership.

This is the best elementary school in this area. We moved from Minnesota for the better schools and are very happy. Fantastic teachers and very nurturing environment. Lots of communication with parents. Gifted program are excellent. Special needs support is less compared to Willow River though.

My son started K here. We discovered he has ADHD in Kindergarten and later that year learned he was highly gifted. The school totally went out of their way to place him in the right environment to learn the best he can. From modifications in environment for his ADHD when he got 'wiggly', to advanced work at his level, talks with the counselor about social behavior issues, etc.. I have nothing but positive things to say about the teachers, counselor, principal, parental involvment, nurse, G&T teacher, Special Ed teacher, everything. I am only hoping to find as good a quality school when we move somewhere warmer. Hudson is a great place to live. I will miss it dearly.

I moved to Wisconsin from Minnesota because my daughter was not getting the support she needed from her school. She has been at Rock for 3 years now and is doing better and continues to get the support she needs. They have much to offer.
