The Hudson School Reviews

It wasn't a big priority but there was definitely occasional conversations surrounding health and safety. We also had a health class which was the dedicated space and time to speak on such topics. If I remember correctly, it wasn't offered all throughout the year. A variety of special guest would speak at the weekly assembly on topics that would sometimes supplement this class. For example a trans-male author visited and spoke on his experiences and special accommodations were made to end classes slightly early to have enough time for his presentation.
Review The Hudson School
Everyone had the opportunity to create new clubs as long as they could gather enough participants. The process was very simple and consisted of an announcement during our weekly assembly and a sign up sheet posted somewhere in the school. I was able to take guitar lessons, participate in mock trail,musical theater productions, and several sport teams during my time there.
The faculty here is incredible- supportive, driven, eager to push each pupil to his/her best. And teachers are not limited to the classroom: during their free periods, they can often be seen engaging in intensive discussions and intellectual dialogues with their students.

Other reviews have stressed the rigorous coursework and college preparatory focus; all of this is true, but I think the Hudson School goes even beyond that. Unlike many other "elite" private institutions, where each student follows the school's "one size fits all" mold of what education should be, Hudson students are pushed to actively shape their academic experiences. It is not rare for upperclassmen to propose and design their own courses, working closely with teachers in that field. The individual's passions and capabilities are prioritized above all else; no learning opportunity is sacrificed for bureaucratic expedience.

In addition, due to the school's size, most classes take on a seminar format, cultivating critical thinking and expression abilities over regurgitation and textbook learning. As a result, I've found that the "regular" courses here tend to be more sophisticated than the standard AP curriculum. Case in point: I've been able to take AP's cold, not even reading over the syllabus, and get 5's with the training from my Hudson classes.

Finally, the Hudson School is one of the most accepting communities I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. It really is as close to a safe haven from bullying and arbitrary student hierarchies as you can physically get. Corny as i sounds- being different isn't stigmatized, it's embraced. And students are treated like real people, not just numbers and statistics.

Ultimately, I do not think any other school could have opened up the myriad opportunities Hudson has for me- intellectually, academically, philosophically, creatively, socially, personally. It truly is a special place.
