Hudson PEP  (Planned Enrichment Program) is a district-wide elementary school in Longview Independent School District for students who perform in the average to above-average range in grades 1-5.

An application begins the process for admittance. Students are given ability and achievement tests to see if they qualify. Students entering first grade are tested during March and April. Grades 2 through 5 are tested during the last week of May.
Parents of students taking tests on the PEP campus are encouraged to park at the front of the school in the semi-circle drive or across Lilly Street. Testing will last about an hour each day, and students must be present both days.

Out-of-district students may apply. About one-third of the students are identified as Gifted and Talented and participate in a supplemental program.

Hudson PEP Elementary School has been rated among the state’s top schools by Texas Monthly magazine and has achieved Exemplary status for high performance on state-mandated testing, in addition to numerous awards for academics, musical talent, and student character.

Applications for Hudson PEP are available here. For more information please contact your campus principal, guidance counselor, or LISD Director of Instruction Beth Bassett.
