I am a magnet 7th grader at Hyde Park Middle School, My schedule is: 0 Period: Expo Robotics 1st Period: History 2nd Period: Language Arts 3- 4a: Algebra Math Lunch 4a-5: Earth Science 6th Period: Syphonic Band I have a couple of complaints, but except for that I love this school. My complaints: (New) Dean could lighten up on the kids. curly haired dean The school could use a renovation And kids are starting to feel stupid they compare themselfs to Algebra 1 honors and think that they are the most stupidest kids in school! They should also have an elective like, homework help because some people can't stay after school!

It's a great school full of productive teachers, but some of the many teachers hand out projects each and every day. So many people are on probation due to the lack of time students have to complete the project. Plus, they don't offer many interesting courses except maybe Chinese and Current Events. Furthermore, the halls are disgusting.

My child is in the 6th grade at Hyde Park in the magnet program. The teachers are good and the curriculum is fairly challenging in math and science, though they do tend to rush through science. The English grammar taught is way below grade level, however their english reading class is fabulous and they cover a lot of styles of writing, composition etc. My main concern is that there is absolutely no history or geography taught in the 6th grade whatsoever. Later in middle school they will be taught U.S and Nevada history, but no world history which is so essential to establish a global viewpoint. The math class, orchestra, and computer class are excellent. Each grade is divided into teams but some classes are more concious about their grades and performance than others. Overall, my child is happy at this school and doing very well.

I am in 6th grade @ HPMS, and it's ok. The teachers aren't that good, and the hall monitors are mean. The school is in a bad neighborhood with crime and the students don't really care about their grades. The 6th grade counselor is never there, and it takes at least 1 week for her to reply to students' issues. The students that have grades lower than a B are supposed to be put on 'probation' which means that you have an amount of days to get their grades back to at least a B. Students aren't put on probation, and that's a problem.

Hyde Park is everything a Magnet School is supposed to be. Hyde Park is a Math and Science Magnet School. Children in the Magnet program receive an additional hour of instruction in the themed subjects. Hyde Park is located in an old neighborhood that appears low income. If you check the schools accountability report you will find that it isn't just the magnet school students who are benefiting from the magnet program. All the students do well under this highly trained staff. If you sort the middle schools here at greatschools.org by any test score category you will find Hyde Park in the top 5 in the County every time. There is a pride among the students and parents who attend that attracted me as a parent. The Orchestra is especially incredible! There is an online system to be in contact with all teachers. Curriculum is very challenging!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
