The Hudson School is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational day school located in Hoboken, in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States, serving over 200 students in fifth through twelfth grade. As of the 2005-06 school year, the school had an enrollment of 204 students and 36.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 5.6. The Hudson School was founded in the fall of 1978 by Suellen Newman, with the financial assistance of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, as an alternative to the available educational institutions in the local area. The school seeks to foster the Three C's ("courage, compassion and commitment") in its students, who are admitted because "they demonstrate a love of learning and don't mind a bit of hard work." In 1991, a high school was opened. The Hudson School is a member of the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools. Some of the basic courses offered at this school are algebra, geometry, pre-algebra, environmental science, chemistry, physics, Latin, Spanish, French, Japanese, German, English, physical education, American history, geography, art, ethics, renaissance history, ethics, aesthetics, and an ever increasing list of many more.
