Hubert R. Hudson Elementary is located within the Brownsville Independent School District, approximately six miles from the Texas-Mexico border. Hudson Elementary is a Title I school, serving students in Pre-Kindergarten to fifth grades with a spectrum of academic and linguistic needs. Rather than view students' diverse backgrounds and educational needs as challenges, Hudson Elementary demonstrates that all children can flourish with appropriate supports, regardless of their name or zip code, when provided a safe, creative, and stimulating learning environment. At the centerpiece of the school's success is the commitment that teachers have for triggering students' desire to learn and purposefully guiding it to garner improved outcomes. Data provides the substance for meaningful, ongoing dialogues. Data serves to tie the learning community together in their instructional decision-making to ensure fidelity to student learning. Students at Hudson Elementary learn how to be productive and educationally-motivated citizens via the Hudsonville Micro-Community and Economy. Children gain an understanding of financial concepts, while learning the value of leadership, career readiness, and real-world skills that will assist them to become responsible, socially prepared citizens.

Hudsonville educators are committed to transformation efforts that enrich the instructional program for all learners. We cultivate a learning environment wherein home and school merge to empower students. The improved academic success of Hudsonville students demonstrates that all stakeholders must use their voice to maintain an unwavering focus on learning. We must ensure that a culture of high expectations nurtures the capacities of administration, teachers, parents, and students.
