The Hudson School, founded in 1978, located in Hoboken, offers a broad and rigorous academic and arts curriculum to children ages 5-12. Children must take four years of a modern foreign language (German, Japanese, French or Spanish) as well as two years of Latin.
In high school, Hudson School students continue their study of a modern foreign language and many students study through the advanced placement levels. Students have spent a year abroad in France, Spain, Germany, Japan and Italy and enjoyed home stays in Costa Rico, Brazil, France, Mexico and the Czech Republic.
Every year the school welcomes exchange students from all over world. In 2009, one Hudson School student won the Premier $15,000 scholarship sponsored by the U.S. Congress and German Bundestag to study in Germany for one academic year.
