My daughter attends HMS and our experience has been very positive. Her teachers are enthusiastic and responsive.

My child has been going to Hudson schools since day 1. I am very disappointed in this school, and the education my child is getting. It is pretty bad when you have to think about selling your home so that your child gets a better education. There is no comparing Hudson Memorial to Nottingham West. The transfer over from elementary to middle school has been at best, a terrible experience for both my child and our family. The communication is without a doubt my biggest complaint. They absolutely do not follow through with what they discuss with parents. I have had multiple meetings with my child's "TEAM" in regards to their education. Not only does this "TEAM" not follow through with what is discussed, it takes weeks, and multiple attempts for them to respond to emails, or calls. It appears they do exactly what is required of them. No more!

This school is sooo amazing in how my work and effort they put in to the kids and they care so much about the activities they have available to the kids and also how they are doing intellectually. The staff members are so polite and respectful. This is my first year at the school and when I was heading into this school we read reviews on this school and most of them were negative and I was scared about coming but my parents decided to give the school a chance. Im glad they did because this school is the best middle i have been to. God Bless This School.

Inconsistent discipline and lack of parent/teacher communication. Bullying is tolerated. Most teachers/administration lack compassion.
