Without a doubt the best school in Las Vegas. Great teachers, great students, and a fantastic math and science program that has produced nationally-recognized competition teams year after year. I'm in college now, but I haven't forgotten the foundation that I got at this school.

best school ever! love the teachers and the programs. definitely come here if you are considering it!!

Hyde Park is without a doubt the greatest middle school in Nevada. The teachers in all disciplines are dedicated and excellent, and the math and science programs are the strongest in the state (MathCounts, Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, Robotics, etc.). There is so much opportunity to learn and thrive here. I will never forget what this school has done for me.

HPMS is definitely my favorite school that I have ever been to. I'm in the Academy program and I love everything about this school and the teachers. They really help you understand every thing of every single subject. It's really amazing. I've been going there for two years. Now, I'm in 7th grade. HP is honestly the best school in LV, Nevada. I've really never been smarter. And not only does it have great education, but it's also really fun. My elective is choir and I get to do some of the funnest things ever in that class. I've always liked math just a little, but now I love it! I never thought that would ever happen. Haha. But to be honest, I would make my children go here if I was a parent. Without a doubt. :)

As a grandparent who attended the Parents Night for one of the two grandchildren there this year, I was totally impressed with both the Physics and Math teachers. They light the fire of the lamp of learning for the students and make them want to do better than expected. My grandson in 8th grade loves his teachers and excells because of their structured teaching. I have nothing but praise for HP and their faculty!

Hyde Park Middle School is oneof the best schools in Las Vegas, NV. I am graduating this year, as I am in the 8th grade, and my experience here has been great, from the classes, the teachers, the other representatives at the school and my friends in the Magnet Program with me...it has been a blast. It is a school that teaches you things academically that kids in regular schools will never experience. I enjoy how advanced things are, and the way that they teach. Any student that comes to Hyde Park will enjoy the Music classes, the advancement of teaching and the teachers are all so good, and I like how they teach. I want to also take time out to thank all of my teachers who have always made themselves available for me, especially when I had to make up tests, or when I needed more information, but especially when I needed to ask questions to things that I didn't understand. They have prepared me for a magnet high school.

This school may not be the highest quality. But they give you good eduction. They push you to your fullest and they try to get you to the maximum in life. This school may be a bit far or others and is alot of work but that's what prepares us for life as students. We get in better classes in high school. Definitely recommended.!!

Hyde Park Academy is a great school that pushes the bar of excellence. My son loves attending this school, his teachers are approachable, staff are nice people. We have had only positive experiences with great attitudes and the students are diverse, intelligent and nice. So happy for this experience!

this school is awesome! it is challenging! we have year round math tutor to keep up with super fast pace of class. my kid is now excellent high achieving student at this school because he wants it. Parents have to be prepared to be very involved with keeping students on task and supplied and organized. Teaching real life situations here.

Hype Park has completely demoralized my once eager and educationally motivated child. He is currently an 8th grader in the Magnet Program and cannot wait until his time at the Academy is over! He stuck it out so he wouldn't be labeled as a failure, but his entire time at Hyde Park has been a major disappointment from what we were told to expect at this school. It is NOT the "innovative" and "hands-on" learning atmosphere that was described at his orientation. Very few of the teachers motivate the child for what they term "accelerated" learning (which in actuality is just an increased amount of homework,) and it's next to impossible to get constructive help from the teachers for children who are struggling. We no longer advocate the CCSD Magnet Program because of the heartbreak we experienced at Hyde Park and are sending all three of our kids to regular public Middle Schools and High Schools from here on out. When you consider the distance from home he faced every day, and the little value he received for his pains, AP classes at a closer location and within reach of friends are looking pretty much equivalent!

Though I have made many great friends who are rather good role models, this school stinks. The first two years were decent, but 8th grade is far from it. If you plan on doing sports or extra curricular activities outside of school like many teens want to, don't come here. The teachers give too much work and so little time. Then, they yell at you for either not being able to complete one of your five million assignments or being tired in class due to lack of sleep. Even if we, students, were not forced into hours of homework each day, we have to get up before the crack of dawn to catch an hour long bus ride. It's okay to have an early bird class start at 7am for regular schools, but this is a magnet school. Most of the magnet students live at least half an hour away. That's a 4am wake up time if you want to look nice, eat breakfast, and catch the morning bus by 5:15am. In conclusion, do NOT come here if you want relatively little stress during your middle school years. Seriously, lack of sleep in addition to LOADS of stress is a not worth getting into a "high class" high school.

Some people are giving really low reviews of this school. And I understand them. I say though, it depends on your level of determination for education and dicipline to like this school. I am a sixth grader, part of the magnet program, currently in the highest six grade class.. KrausBerg and will be going on to RomoHill next year. (Krausberg=Mrs. Kraus and Mrs. Berg) (RomoHill= Mrs. Romo and Mr. Hill). I really think KrausBerg pushes me to do well in school and challenges me alot. We do lots of reading, writing, biology, and math. I think Hyde Park is an excellent school for those that are committed to excellence.


Posted February 25, 2013

Ive been here for 3 years, and i absolutly HATE it !! I dont even know how many times i went home and begged my mom to take me out of this school . I have an english teacher, she is soo rude. She would tell her students to shut up and she doesnt want to hear from you. The Counselers are very helpful although , the deans and principles arent . Please do not send your kids to this school . There is alot of talk about drugs and alcohol . I do not recommend this school to ANYONE !!!


Posted January 24, 2013

This is the best school ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite teacher there is Jeremy Wolstenhulme! (aka: Mr.W)


Posted January 16, 2013

I am a student at this school. I can't complain too much, because compared to all the other middle schools, this would be the best one to send your student to. However it doesn't meet my expectations. They are riding on the fact that all their students are smart, and not really pushing us to be the best. If anything, I have learned to hate school more because I am never learning anymore. Also, the kids here are not the best either. There is so much fights and drama. The only good thing about going to Hyde Park and being a smart kid is that many high schools and summer programs find you because they want you. I am in 8th grade this year and hundreds of boarding schools and magnet high schools have been sending me letter. People from prestigious high schools around the world have come to Hyde Park to interview me. So Hyde Park itself in my opinion is a horrible school, but when you suck it up and deal with it, there are many reward and benefits. Just don't let the school destroy your spirit and love of learning.


Posted July 2, 2012

Hyde Park is a really wonderful school. The only bad thing about it is the non-magnet students and teachers who don't put effort. Trust me, every teacher does their job, but some just don't give enough information. I am in the magnet, and if you're in 6th grade, you better pay attention and have only A's in math and science. The 6th grade teachers are the ones who determine whether you go to Pre-Algebra or Algebra in 7th grade. Unfortunately, I had one B in math and went into Pre-Algebra. If my math teacher advised me this determines what classes you go to, I would have stepped up and had an A. The people who have Pre-Algebra in 7th grade go into Algebra in 8th. But since the 7th graders already took those classes, they go into geometry (I'm not quite sure what science they go to). Other than that, the teachers are great!


Posted May 12, 2012

I am currently a 7th grader at Hyde Park. THis is seriously a good school. Teachers will teach you what is necessary if you put effort into learning. There's alot of clubs here at this school like Rubix cube club, Chess, Science olympics, dance, basketball, soccer, track, archery, art, drama, band, choir, orchestra etc.. i am in junior varsity band and the band teacher Mr. Tyler is a really great iinstructor. he'll be strict with you but its because he expects good things from you. teachers arent mean at all unless you make them be mean. all teachers are friendly. the dress code isnt much . just make sure you wear appropriate clothes. theres rarely any bullying. everybody is friendlythese past 2 years ive really enjoyed it especially this one. ive had alot of memories with my friends that i dont want to let go of. i do reccomend this school to anyone who wants a good education.


Posted February 9, 2012

I use to went Hyde Park last year, even though i'm in high school right now. All the teacher are cool and nice hang out with. I've learn a lot from my middle school year. I use to be in the band program, and was the best. Mr.Tyler teach us very well, very funny, and fun. Excellent teacher and best band teacher ever have. There was a lot of memory with my friends and teachers. I'm wasn't in the magnet program but, still awesome school. If you want to put your child in the magnet program, it great program to be in, and make sure to be in band then orchestra, because were losing a lot of band member and increasing the orchestra member so, please put your child in the band program. BEST MIDDLE SCHOOL EVER!!!!!
