This school is a mess, they are disorganized and liars. Moving kids out of classes and putting them in more advanced classes without seeing what educational level they are on is wrong and unfair. I already want to unenroll my child out of this school and they've been there less than a month.
I have been a volunteer for over 3 years, and to be honest this school is cleaning up and improving with this new administration. We need more parent involvement and community help to help these children succeed. Without cooperation from the community I do not know how people think these kids are going to exceed.
I am a parent of five kids. I had live in this area for more than 10 years. unfortunately I only enroll my kids for pre-k and kindergarden but promptly as soon as they are promote to 1st grade I enroll them in a better school. I said that is unfortunately because having a school so close to you and having to look for another one because its education is so deplorably is ashamed. It is ashamed on the superintendent, on the representant of the school board, on the principal of the school but more ashamed is on the parents. We would make a big diffence in this school if we would only show up for meetings, or help the school, be volunteer in your child's classroom for at least 30 or 20 minutes at week. We are our children's voice but only can be hear if we are there.
There are many dedicated teachers and staff that are trying their best at this school to reach the students. The majority of the students are bright, hard-working, and sweet kids. Unfortunately, there are also many students who face extraordinary circumstances that require consistent and expert services that the school is struggling to provide. Furthermore, there needs to be more cooperation between parents, teachers, staff, and administration to address issues of discipline, school morale, academic expectations, and parent involvement. There is a lot of work to be done, but everyone needs to get involved for real change to occur. Otherwise, qualified and motivated teachers will continue to leave the school for better opportunities.
I have been a volunteer at Hyde Park El. School for four years. I am impressed with the principal, staff and caring, dedicated teachers. There are many challenges in all the schools today. I feel we should all be asking ourselves, 'How can I help make the schools safer and better for our community?' My hat is off to the hard working staff at Hype Park.
I have been a teacher at Hyde park for about 10 years. The teachers are dedicated and want to see students succeed. Even though there are many challenges that the school face, the teachers, principal and staff work hard to provide a safe learning environment for all students.
We are new to the area and my two children who attend Hyde Park have expressed to me everyday the disfunctions of the school. All the reviews I've read are true and accurate!
This school needs a new principal. I have never seen a school like this. The staff and principal are rude to parents. The children are out of control and always fighting. Teachers are not teaching and don't care about our children. I am moving to Palmdale so my children can get an education.
This is a horrible school. The students run the school. The students do not recevie a quality education. The students can just walk out of class without the teacher's knowledge and no one will know where your child is. There are always fights starting out on the yard and one can tell you what happened. The school will release your child to anyone. The administration does not know how to deal with students who may have trouble adjusting to a new environment.
Teachers need to show more genuine interest for the students. Parents are not involved and school does nto do a good job reaching out.
