Hyde Park Academy Reviews

Hyde Park wasn't much exciting. Here, the outstanding students are rewarded with things like: ceremonies, off campus lunch and school apparel that other students doesn't have access to. Other than that it's really just a basic or average high school I should say. Teachers and staff here favor certain kids and never forget those who have disrespected or fail to execute teachers and tasks.

My experience at hydepark is poor because of the staff and students and how the rules are unnecessary. Most of staff don't know how to deal with students and situations that has anything to do with students,which is why I rated my school poor. I also rated my school poor because of the lack of help that most of the staff should provide for students,For example, If a student had an item stolen from He/She the results are always "the cameras are off", "Well you're stuff is gone",etc basically no help at all when help is needed.
What I like about Hyde Park Academy is it’s a very good school. I’m well familiar with the school my deceased uncle graduated from here, and it’s easy it could be some challenges but it’s not challenges that I can’t do or can’t handle. Hyde Park is assit me in many wayang that I need to be assisted. I believe that Hyde Park changed me because now I am more motivated to do my work. I came from a noble school called Butler College Prep even though that was more challenging than Hyde Park, Butler also taught me a lot and I came to Hyde Park with the knowledge that I got from Butler. Hyde Park is a CPS school but it could challenge you.
