    As a student currently attending Hudson I believe that it is one of the best public schools in Long Beach. I have been attending Hudson since kindergarten and have experienced all that the school can provide to their students and also their parents. The students at this school are also taught well by their teachers and receive adequate student-teacher attention. The friendships made at this school will surely last a lifetime. Go Hawks!

    The school has 2 magnet programs EXCELL & SHARP. Most of the teachers are very experienced and work well with the students. Some of the office staff leave something to be desired but are efficeint enough. It's a k-8 school with appx 1200 students. My son has had great success there. There is no PTA only a school site council that meets once a month on Wed. @ 3 30 I can never make it so I don't know what's going on most of the time.

    This scholl is the greatest school I've ever been to. It is very orginized and it is high in tolerence.Their attitude against students are great.The extra activities are great it gives students a chance to stay out of the streets and out of gangs. I went to this school before I had to move to Shreveport and i was there since knidergarten I just want to say this school is the best school of all the lunch is good and their prices are decent. This school should be voted number one of all other schools They are the most distinguished(sorry if I spelled that wrong)school of all.Thank you for your time. Sincerely Aryka Williams
