I have just moved and I have three kids that will be attending this school. So far I have still been driving them to their old school because they love it and its so close to the end of the year. However of course I can't keep them in a school that's in the incorrect district. But after reading the reviews I am now very concerned about transferring them. Does anyone have any more incite that could help me make a decision?!
I have 2 boys that have attended Hyde grove for 3 years. The first year was great I was very happy with the school despite the grade level it was at. After the first year the principle was moved to a different school and replaced by principle Royal. That was the biggest mistake they could have made at that school! Since Mr Royal has become principle it seems as if no one cares about the children or the quality of education they are receiving. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
My son goes to Hyde grove elementary school he is in kindergarten at the moment school just started and he is already coming home upset telling me that his teacher is mean and yells at him so this morning I let him walk into his clad a good two or three minutes before I walked in and I witnessed how hateful and rude she was myself were from georgia and he attended prek last year and loved every day of it now he dreads going to school and is scared of his teacher I plan on having a talk with his teachers today and the principal as well a teacher should be kind and caring not mean and hateful especially when it's our five and six year olds they are so impressionable at this age .
I attended this school as a child, for grades 3-5, and after reading the few reviews that have been posted in the 15 years since my attendance, very little has changed. There are some teachers who choose to be involved and truly care for their students, but many of them allow students to slip through the cracks due to lack of help from the parent's end. It takes many people to educate a child, they learn both from books, and real life experience. Many of the children have little to no respect for authority, or each other, and it frustrates the staff. There again, some of the staff, with the exception of few, tend to have a nonchalant attitude if they believe that the parents don't care either. Take it from someone who had that experience themselves as a 5th grader there. A teacher who had been appointed to oversee the safety patrol there treated me like I wasn't fit to polish floors, and gave me 'once over' looks, with distasteful rolls of the eye when she saw me, because I rarely had nice clothes to wear, and my mom worked two jobs, so she never came up to school except to drop us off and pick us up. My first experience with any type of prejudice.
My daughter is currently attending this school and will be leaving next year. She was doing better in Callahan, learning more and getting the one on one she needed. Now she is going to Hyde Grove getting bullied and her grades just don't seem right for someone as smart as her. She comes home crying and begging to never go back. We tried talking to teachers but nothing gets done. I have even been told that since she is white that seems to be the problem. I say no more and she is going to a B school next year instead of a D school.
my son is in the ese progams in this school. he is in prek and is developemently delayed. when he started school he could barely talk but now i can't get him to be quiet because he has so much to say, it puts a smile on my face. he was not potty trained when he started now he doesnt even use diapers to go to bed. now tell me how this is not a good school. first and for most if your going to insult people's teaching skills you should learn how to spell or use spell check before you post. second the staff does what they can. i love this school for my son his teachers are so amazing. keep it up hyde grove. A childs education and discipline begins at home. Teach your own kids how to behave dont expect the teacers to do it for you.
I think the school is doing a good job with what they have to work with.... no money, little parent involement.... If you want to complain why dont you volenteer and she whats going on in the school before you start bad mouthing the teachers
This school is horrid. I am doing everything in my power to get my child out of it. There is no guidance, the kids that attend have no home training, and the teachers are less than devoted. My child has a substitute almost weekly. The kids seem to make the rules and the aftercare program is more like a babysitting scam.
I attended Hyde Grove Elementary as a child K-5. My son now attends this school, He was a student at Fishwier in there Magnet program. I removed him from this A graded school, because my son was not learning well there. Since he's been attending Hyde Grove is grades has come up tremendously and there's more teacher involvment. People are always saying there needs to be more parent involvment, but I have always been involved in my sons education since he was in Pre-school and so has many other parents who kids attend this school. I attended Hyde Grove as a child and I graduated from College with a four year business degree not because my parents encouraged me, but because I had teachers who cared and push me to do better.When you have students attending a school with a poor community and no parent involvement. That's why you have PTA.
The kids in this school run the school!!! The teachers and the parents of these students have no controll of them!!! They need to buckle down and stop being scared of the parents and tell them that their children need LOVE and DISAPLEN! My daughter comes home every day crying because she gets picked on and shoved around! I try to get her in somewhere else she gets straight As and every other school seems to be full.. So if we can't get our children into a better school, then the school needs to change for the better... Even when you go to the school with these problems,, The parents of these students Try to fight the parents who go to the school.... Grown People.. Something needs to change... You can blame the good students wich seems to be the case but it is not them.
I am in my second year teaching at Hyde Grove, and I've seen them make gains in many areas. We have some of the most caring teachers and staff, and a way above average principal with a vision for the school and a heart for the students and staff. The best way to describe Hyde Grove is 'We Are Family'.
i am very proud of this school i attened hyde grove since first grade. and that is an excellent school.!!!!
Considering the lack of parent involvement, and the fact that this is a title 1 school I believe this school with it's administration and staff are doing a wonderful job with the students, and have maintained their 'C' average despite the many challenges they have faced. If only the parents would realize that they to have a resposibility in the education process with their child.
I think the teachers at this school are very good. I believe they do the best with what they have to work with.
