    After taking my child to Baton Elementary and West Lenoir Elementary I can say that Hudson Elementary has exceeded my expectations by ten fold. My child has ADHD and the teachers at Hudson go above and beyond to help and to keep us informed of everything. The homework load isn't crazy as in some schools and my child's class mixes with other classes on their grade level to match kids with their same learning potential to help them learn better. There is a zero bullying policy at Hudson and the kids aren't trying to "look cool" so that they aren't made fun of as in some other schools. I cant imagine moving my child from this school. My child loves going to school now and went from a child who was making some of the lowest scores to now an AG student.

    I am proud to say my child goes to HES. I love the way her teachers keep me very well informed of her progress. My child is enrolled in HES under a transfer because we live outside the district. I wouldn't have her at any other school. HES teaches not only academics but also respect and doesn't tolerate bullying. This is important as it teaches our children to get along with one another. HES is like a home away from home with family feeling atmosphere. If you ask me there is no other school than HES. Go HES hornets. Thank you teachers and staff! Sincerely a proud HES parent.

    HES is a great school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The school is very clean and orderly. I have 2 daughters that attend this school and they love it too!

    Hudson Elem. seems to be one of the greatest schools in the area. The teachers are friendly and child oriented. There are lots of extra activities. I went to this school when I was a child and I am proud to say that my son attends here as well!
