Hyde School Reviews

All Categories
I graduated Hyde on 2018. I have been at Hyde since my sophomore year. The nurses are very impolite. Certain faculties are very catty and gossipy. Acadmics are the least important matter at Hyde. Hyde is more about developing one’s character and such. One thing they don’t tell you when you come for a tour is that there are work crew and job. They place sports teams/ discovery groups to do jobs, which is basically cleaning after dinning hall, washing dishes, and washing pots and pans. Work crew is a system for students who did not follow school’s rules. Students in work crew clean school and do homework in dinning hall. They are banned from participating in sports practice and having free time. These seem unreasonable but at the same time it is to give second chance for students who disobey the rules. Many students who graduate from this school have mixed feelings about the school.

Hyde School is a high school like no other. Hyde school is emotionally demanding. Character education is one of the largest elements of the Hyde philosophy, and is practiced every day in student life. Upon leaving Hyde you wonder how some of the things you've been through or learned will help you later in life. Less than a year later I can say that Hyde has shaped the independent and driven college student that I have become. These traits have been earned not through rigorous academics, but through the experiences I had at Hyde working with and challenging my peers, advocating for myself, creating lifelong connections with students as well as faculty, and so much more. Hyde students have a connection with each other that is unlike any other, whether or not you were at Hyde at the same time, or whether or not you enjoyed your Hyde experience, there is a shared experience unlike any other that Hyde Alumni/former Hyde students share.
I graduated from Hyde in 2016 after spending my senior year there. I love the focus on character development and how the school incorporates families as a major part of the student's lives. Family weekend is a center of growth and development in one's deepest and important relationships of all, parents. I got to be challenged in a safe environment and grow as a person there. One thing that Hyde could change would be to offer more AP classes. I transferred from a school that had 16 AP options and it was a shame to not be challenged in the same way academically and having the option to take as many classes as I hoped to.
