This school is no longer Hyatt, it is now the location of Riverside STEM Academy. My daughter goes to STEM and it is a wonderfull school. There is alot of homework but I believe they are giving them great study skills. It is an advanced school and you must keep your grades up or you will be placed on Academic probation.
As a family rating Hyatt, we have nothing but great things to say about the staff is amazing and very family orientated as well as supportive. Academically both of my children have made a tremendous improvement academically and behaviorally. Teachers like Mrs. Stimmel, Mrs. Hernandez,Mrs. Smit,Mrs. Coffin, and the personal in the office Mrs. Tildman, and Mr. Ayala. I am very pleased with the school and the excitement my children have to go to school everyday with a positive approach to learning. This is what learning is all about. The excellent standards and the power of teaching. Thank you Hyatt for the wonderful results and confidence you have given my children.
I have 2 boys that go to Hyatt,since Kindergarten through now we've had nothing but great teachers. My sons love their teacher, they motivate them, keep it fun, and are strict with homework, which I don't mind. I know they are paving the road for my sons to be a success academically. They enforce the confidence I try to give them that you can do anything you set your mind on. Field trips are great, my kids look forward to all the events that are available.
Teachers at Hyatt, I believe are like most nowadays, unpersonable, afraid to be different or challenging, and held back in really shaping a child's later life. Funding cutoffs are the threats used to force 'improvement. I have 2 boys that go here. They never take field trips, they don't do anything except get drilled with homework, and tests, usually if not always in Math. What a shame that the schools fail to realize the potential of individual strenghts in children. Not everyone is meant to be a scientist...There are hills behind the school but not 1 student can name any plants growing there. But otherwise it's a nice school.
