The Hudson School takes great pride in watching students go from young, 5th grade 10 year-olds to mature high-school graduates who are ready to take on the world.
The Hudson School offers small classes and individual attention. The course work is challenging and relevant, preparing our students for college and to take their place as global citizens. These goals are at the heart of our curriculum, be it in Foundations of Art & Design, Calculus, Statistics or English Literature.
The Hudson School curriculum encompasses over one hundred fifty courses, including advanced placement courses in Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, English, French, Latin, Physics, Psychology, Spanish and United States History, to name but a few. Each student must take a minimum of two years of Latin, both at the middle school and high school levels – a requirement which surprises and delights many colleges. Each student is also expected to become proficient in at least one modern foreign language (offerings include French, Japanese, German, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish). The school is well known for its strong writing program and dramatic and musical productions.
Our 50-plus faculty members, many of whom have advanced degrees, bring a wide range of experiences and perspectives to Hudson. As a group, they all share one distinct quality – a profound commitment to teaching. They are practitioners from their fields, mentors, role models. At Hudson, you feel a kind of rare relationship between teachers and students, one based on an affectionate human bond in a world that often feels digitized and disconnected.
At the end of the day, what matters to us is creating an atmosphere in which our students understand that they already have everything they need inside of them and our work is to help them access and connect with their intelligence and talents. We value independent thinking, learning and intellectual risk-taking. We value courage, compassion and commitment.
