When my daughter first went to Hudson - in Grade One - she was quite a clingy girl, having had a hard time in a large public school. Now she's in Grade 5, she runs up the stairs to the school, barely giving me a wave goodbye, very happy. A major difference! She feels safe, encouraged, valued. She has good friends and feels like she's an important part of the school community. And she feels like she's succeeding academically - with a lot of hard work on her part, but that's another great life skill...
Our children love going to Hudson. Their friends who live across the city and come from around the country and across the globe give our children a world view that is preparing them to be engaged and invested in their future. Spend some time in the class rooms, play ground and hallways. Listen to the kind of conversations, the debates and the laughter. Watch how the kids, teachers and staff interact with each other. Let what you see, hear and feel influence whether or not this is the kind of place you trust with helping shape and form your child.
If I was asked to give a tour, I would take the visitors into the science classrooms or my math classroom. I love all my classes, but science and math are special to me, and what my career goals are. I feel these rooms are decorated with the best things: posters and diagrams showcasing the student’s work, graphing art in the math classrooms, science equipment and models… It is where I study my favourite subjects!
The school life at Hudson College is really good, because there is a room for everyone here, If you want to relax in between classes there is the Common Room which has couches and coffee tables, for conversing over, table tennis tables to relax the mind and have friendly tournaments, and a foosball table for the same reason. There is also a piano to listen to other students play music and there are two vending machines so you can purchase drinks and snacks. If you are more interested in a technology-based room there is The Zone which is a more modern room with a quiet atmosphere for studying alone or together, and some TVs to have classes on. There is also the IHub which has a virtual reality system and 3D printers if that's more your style. Finally, if you just like to relax and talk to your friends then there is the cafeteria, and if you want to hold a basketball match or something along those lines there is always the gym.
