    Hudson middle school was by far THE best school I could of went to. The faculty was amazing and the teachers know what they are doing. A good teacher I recommend meeting would be Mr. Field (English 7th grade) he understands how to help a student evolve for a greater education. But I recommend Hudson middle school over all others 5 stars.

    Mr. Van Gorden sets the tone for the campus. He does a great job. The school is clean and well maintained. The teachers work hard to help the students. I would recommend this school to anyone.

    I have 2 children one now out of this middle school and 1 currently still there. The teachers are the best assest of this school - very understanding and knowledgeable. But the administration can not seem to get a handle on the disciplinary problems if they could this environment would be much better suited for learning.

    I think that Hudson Middle School has one of the best Band programs around all of their extracurricular's are wonderful their arts and sports are also done very well. Mr. Keon in band however gives a outstanding level of commitment to the school. Hudson Middle has the same academic programs you will find at all the public middle schools in Pasco County but the teachers are committed to helping the students achieve academic success. Hudson is a poorer community but they strive for excellence in all they do. The parents stay involved through all levels of school. I always expected to find no one at open houses pta etc. Often there were more then my sister would tell me showed up at her elementary school in Md.!

    Wonderful school. Administrators are knowledgeable as are the faculty. Every effort is made to accomodate the needs of the student and parent with the student's academic success is first and foremost their primary concern. This school recognizes the significant contributions the parent and community can make to the overall success of the school as a reflection of that community's image and future. The teacher's make every effort to open the lines of communications with parents.
