Hudson High School (HHS) is a public high school located in Hudson, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. It is administered by the Hudson Public Schools system, and serves grades 8 through 12 (plus a preschool class). The current principal is Brian K. Reagan and the assistant principals are Joshua Otlin, for upperclassmen, and Daniel McAnespie, for grades eight and nine.


The first high school building in Hudson was built in 1869,[5] only one year after the town itself was incorporated. The building, located on High Street, was used as the high school until 1882. After that, it was used as an elementary school for a number of years. The two-story wood building is still standing, now housing the Hudson Animal Hospital.

The second high school, a two-story brick building, the Felton Street School, was completed in 1882 and served as the high school until 1956. It was then used as a grade school for some time, until being remodeled into a condominium complex. It is still standing,[5] and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

A new high school was built in 1956 on Packard Street after the brick building on Felton Street became too small. This new building was used as the high school until 1970, when it was replaced. It was the town's middle school for a short time,[5] and was renamed the Carmela A. Farley School after a long-time Hudson teacher. The school became an elementary school, and was remodeled in 1999. Its main entrance is now on Cottage Street.

The building that replaced the one on Packard Street was completed in 1970,[5] and was located on Brigham Street. It served as the high school until about 2004, when it was knocked down and replaced by a brand-new, modern $50 million school. Interestingly, it is the only high school building in Hudson to have been knocked down instead of reused.

The newest and current high school building was finished in 2004. It was built behind the previous high school, which was knocked down to make way for the new parking lot. A practice football field now occupies the space where the former parking lot was. In addition to the new building, the number of tennis courts was increased from four to six, two new baseball/softball fields were constructed, and a new clubhouse for the Hudson High School Athletics Booster Club was built.

In 2012, the Hudson Boys' Hockey Team went 23-1-1 to capture the Massachusetts State Championship defeating Medway at the Boston Garden by a score of 5-1.
