for (let i = 0; i <= sd.length; i += 1){
  student = sd[i];
  message += '<h2> name: ' + student.name + '</h2>';
  message += '<p> Track: ' + student.track + '</p>';

1) The condition for your loop to run i <= sd.length; includes sd.length. This then includes an index of 5 when the highest index for sd is 4 (index starts at 0). You see undefined in the console because sd[5] is undefined. The condition should just be i < sd.length;.

2) You also have message in quotes here.


This will set the inner HTML to 'message' instead of the value of the variable message. Remove the quotes.
