HudsonWay Immersion School Ratings & Reviews
Daughter joined Kindergarten this year at their new location in Sterling. School building is a great size and has lots of playgrounds. Most positive aspect is their immersion and well educated teachers. Daughter has positive stories from school everyday about their learnings.
I would give it 1 star. Had a terrible experience, felt teachers were not compassionate. Spanish teacher did not have good english language skills and unable to communicate effectively with parents regarding day to day activities of the child in class. Teacher unable to cope with any child who is not a quiet or shy individual.
The administration hasn't been forthcoming on the school's plans for the future. They have been planning to move New Jersey locations, but refused to tell the parents what town the new building will be in. They required contracts and payment for the 2017-18 school year to be in without telling parents where the location will be. As of June, they still haven’t told us where the school will be. As a working mother this can make a huge difference in my commute. The administration even told us that they may increase the tuition retroactively next year to cover costs for the new location.
Amazing school! Coming from the West Coast where immersion is widely accepted, I had my doubt about HudsonWay- Is it as good as those expensive schools in SF? I was blown away by how wonderfully my kids are doing. To start with, it is their favorite school so far. My older one is in K, but she had been to four programs before HundsonWay and finds HudsonWay as her favorite. My younger one dances into the classroom every day. Academically, they are also doing wonderfully, not only with Mandarin but also with English, Math, Music and Science. My kindergartner can even write certain full sentences in Mandarin without any reference. Highly recommended!
My daughter began her studies at Hudson Way Immersion School when she was 3.5 years old and my son arrived at the school a year later. Both myself and the children were slightly apprehensive when we began the program. Our family does not have any Mandarin fluency, however the teachers were so kind and welcoming that the transition was completely rewarding. My daughter (now age 6.5) and my son (age 5) love the program and have been able to speak fluently with each other for some time now.
