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.
This school is terrific! The teachers are good and my child is well teached for high school.
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 one of the best school ever, they don't only have great teachers, but they have a great program too
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!
