My daughter attends this school and it is a great improvement over the previous public school she attended. She is in the magnet section and has very good, challenging teachers. The orchestra teacher is way above and beyond her previous teacher and her orchestra competes with high schools. Don't believe any bad reviews listed. Trust the positive reviews! Signed, happy parent (with doctorate in education).
I am an eighth grader at Hyde Park and I absolutely LOVE it! I love my math class- I'm in Geometry, and love it, and I am always able to be challenged, unlike in my elementary school. I am in advanced orchestra, and last year, my class won best orchestra in the west coast (including high schools). It is older and kind of dirty sometimes, but not horrible. We have a lot of school spirit, and the teachers are absolutely AMAZING! They are really nice, and I haven't had a teacher I dislike. They are fantastic. I have taken all accelerated classes, plus I'm two years ahead in math and taking beginning Physics/Chemistry, and I still have a 4.0 GPA. There is a lot of homework, but if you are a dedicated student you'll be fine. I will really really miss it next year- trust me, this school is amazing!
The teachers and staff at HPMS are very good. They encourage you to do your best and every assignment challenges you. The kids in the magnet program are very nice and smart but the neighborhood kids have ruined the reputation of the school. The band program is amazing and Mr.Tyler is awesome. I am going to be a 8th grader this year and I will miss this school very much. Go PANTHERS!!!!!!!!!!!
this school is ok. i've been here for 2 years and so far i know is that the the school is filthy and no one cleans the bathrooms which leaves waste everywhere. the classes are usually very boring and some of the teachers are very mean like insulting students and some teachers often yell.
I'm a 7th grader and I think this school is great for anyone who wants a good education and loves to learn. so far i've been in choir, band, PE, and guitar. It's all so fun and next year im going to be so sad to leave but it just shows that i've learned what i needed to. So have fun c u l8r!!!!!!
This school is way better than most public schools, the curriculum is very good and so are their teachers. Other public schools i have been to have poor curriculum. But since hpms is a magnet school, it has the curriculum of a private school. I went to Challenger since preschool [private school] , it was about 2 years ahead , but the kids had no fun. Then i changed to a public school, then to hyde park. Which was like going to high school, fun and educational.
Hyde Park, what can I say? This middle school changed my life & gave me the opportunity to do my best. It was hard but in the end, it was all worth it. Through Hyde Park, I learned many things that have helped me succeed in life & the students there are all, for the most part, very welcoming & fun to hang out with. The teachers are great! They're always willing to help you with any questions. And if you like playing an instrument or singing, the music groups at Hyde Park are some of the best, in all aspects. My experience with the orchestra at Hyde Park was one of a kind, traveling to other places in the U.S. & the world, competing, & just playing for fun. So, if you're looking for a middle to go to, consider Hyde Park. -9th grader at Phillips Exeter Academy
I'm a 7th grader at hyde park and i'm in choir! I think it is a great school and most the teachers give you little homework which is good sometimes. The teachers and all the staff cares about you. They even have great electives! * Lets give it up for the Panthers*
I'm a 6th grader at Hyde Park and this school is absolutely, positively wonderful. The teachers explain everything quite well, but the homework does get a little heavy sometimes. As long as you can deal with it, though, it's not really all that stressful. I'm in Orchestra, and... well.. I'm really, really enjoying it. Special thanks to my math and reading teachers, and especially Mr. W. Looking forward to a great rest of the year at Hyde Park... Go Hyde Park Panthers!
Both my children go to this school. It has been a great school that keeps kids focused.
Well, I'm a seventh grader at HPMS and I absolutely love it. The programs they have are one of the best in the country (orchestra, band, etc.) and all the teachers are really good at teaching. The teachers are not only good at teaching, but they're fair to every student and extremely nice. Although, many people complain about how the teachers are mean, blah blah blah, I have to disagree with you because they're just strict (there's a difference). And many kids complain about the work overload. I think that if you can't handle the projects, maybe you're not ready for the magnet program yet. Or it will just take you another quarter to get used to the work. Don't forget to join clubs like Science Olympiad, NJHS, etc.
This schol concentrates on bringing out the best in each student. The reflection is seen especially in their music department.
The school is very good and clean. People just don't like it because some kids are not in the magnet program so they are not accelerateed.
My daughter went to Hyde Park for 3 years and now she is ready for High School. Special thanks to Mr. W in Orchestra, Mr Lavelle good luck in Africa, Ms. Thompson. Good luck next year.
I'm a sixth grader and I love it at hyde park. It isn't the best school of all time, but the teacher know how to make everyone feel just as important everyone else. Before when I when to a regular public school I would pass tests and assignments so easily that sometime I didn't try at at, but at hpms in the magnet program it challenges me and I try new things everyday. : )
I'm an eighth grader at this school and it is truly the most amazing school I have ever been to. The choir, band, and orchestra are some of the best in the state! At competitions, we are known to win the Sweepstakes awards, if not many awards. The Orchestras compete with high schools, the bands go to many states, and the choirs are great too. The math and science are very challenging, but at most times easy to comprehend. There's a lot of homework but it's worth it! I recomend it to anyone who wants an awesome school!
i'm 7th and going 8th this year and i love this school except for the math courses.
I'm a 7th grader at Hyde Park this year, and I'd have to say that this school is amazing. Teachers are wonderful, and they try to challenge you as much as possible. Our band, choir, and orchestra are some of the best in the district and travel all over the nation to compete. Hyde Park gives you a great opportunity to try new things, and I'm sure everyone will love it there.
i'm an 8th grader here and this school is truly amazing. the teachers here are really great.but at some times they overload us with homework making us stay till 1 a.m working on it. also the teachers seem to give us all projects at the same time. mr.kuzma is a great principal. he interacts with all the students and it doesnt feel weird when you talk with him. some deans are really harsh while others are great. the choir,band, and orchestra are amazing! the choir was able to go to carnegie hall this year and last year they recieved 2cd place(they lost by a half of a point to a high school!). they orchestra got to london and went to chicago. the band got to go to hawaii and could have gone to mexico but couldnt due to the war going on there. all in all i really recommend this
I'm a seventh grader at Hyde Park and so far I'm loving it ! My principl, Mr. Kuzma, is very determined to help us students succeed in school . Along with all the other teachers who support each and everyone of the students at Hyde Park . We learn in the funnest ways, with the best tools and best resources . Hyde Park is truly the best school in Clark County Nevada !
