Students are on their way to Destination Graduation

The Hudson City School District kicked off the 2014-15 school year on a running start. Test scores that were released over the summer revealed that its grades 3 to 8 math scores rose overall nearly 2.5 percent with several grades making substantial gains and one grade rising as much as 12 percent.

The district’s report card also displays that its 3 to 8 ELA test scores rose overall by 3 percent with several grades making substantial gains and one grade rising almost 16 percent.

The John L. Edwards Primary School exhibited its true potential with as much as a 21 percent increase in reading scores over just one year.

Additionally, the district's graduation rate since the development of its three-year plan last year has already increased by 10 percent. Superintendent Maria Suttmeier is confident that the district will at least meet its goal of 15 percent by 2015.

Hudson students have shown determination not only to grow intellectually, but to mature as individuals as well. Discipline referrals and suspension rates have decreased substantially, and the district's after-school clubs and other extracurricular programs are thriving.

The community has put their full support behind Hudson City School District's students, as demonstrated by the tripled number of mentors in the Hudson Reads program at the Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School since its inception. Hudson's young students are sure to continue their upward climb through the pipeline with the help of such strong role models throughout the school community.
