Hyde is a great school with lots of parental involvement and teacher commitment. I have 3 sons and they have all different personalities, at Hyde each of their needs are met and they are all able to learn beyond measures. I also that the principal is one of the best and takes on a role that is personal, passionate, and respectful, that helps the children feel more confident and want to excel in everyday learning. I think that Hyde Addison Elementary is one of the best in Washington DC.

My school is where I learn, I play and I stay 6 hours a day. I go with my little brother. He is in kindergarten and I am in 3rd grade. Everyone knows our names. There I met my best friends. They are Americans or from all over the world. Together we learn Math, Science, History and also other countries's cultures. My favorite places are the library and the playground. But it could be better. I wish we have more teachers and a theater for plays. I love to go to school every day!

Hyde Addison is a gem. For a public school, you really get a quality education. The staff is professional, responsive, and - most importantly - they love the children. There is a strong sense of community and my children have learned values that far exceed academics. They have learned to celebrate differences, conflict resolution, empathy, and respect for self and others. I can on and on about this school. There is a very involved community of parents that are an integral part of the educational experience. Dana's leadership is phenomenal. She gives her all to that school and it really shows. We are blessed to be a part of such a vibrant and thriving community!

This is a wonderful small school that does a great job across many areas of education. My eldest child has attended from PreK-4th grade, and my youngest from PreK-1st. Both kids have had amazing teachers who have worked with them and pushed them to do their best. Every adult in the school knows every child's name and there is a good feeling of community among the parents. I find it to be an excellent school!

My child has attended grades K-5 at Hyde Addison and I can say without hesitation that I have no regrets with sending him here. Hyde has all of the benefits of a small school but some of its drawbacks as well. I have a lot of faith in Principal Nerenberg and the teachers. They all know my child, which isn't uncommon, and take a genuine interest inside and outside the classroom to make sure he succeeds. The school underwent a multi-million dollar renovation thanks to the Fenty Administration and now has 2 historic schoolhouses connected by a fenced in playground. While the school has all the charm of Georgetown so too its space constraints. The children go to Fillmore (Hardy) on Wednesdays for 2 arts electives. This works out well but the school's lack of a gym is something the administration needs to address. They have 2 PE classes/week outside or in makeshift spaces. Performances and PTA meetings are generally held at St. John's Church across the street. Class sizes are on the high end and would be difficult to manage if not for the student teacher assisants. The school is incredibly diverse both socioeconomically and linguistically. I call it the United Nations of schools.

Hyde is a wonderful school! Ms Nerenberg is an excellent principal and the staff is wonderful! My kids have been at Hyde for the last two years. The educational opportunites are endless, and the staff really does dedicate time to your child. Kudos to Mrs Alsop and Mrs Roth!

My child has attended the school since First grade, this is her fourth year, overall I am very pleased with the school 1-3 grade results, The fourth grade year has fallen flat due to lack of clear direction and communication issues as well as the teachers not having enough support to properly implement the standards. I am sure things will get better as the school grows accustomed to its new leadership, but unfortunately it is to late for its current years students.

A gem of a school in a great neighborhood. Lots of individual attention and terrific, experienced teachers. Among the highest test scores in the city. As a recognized leader in academic excellence, Hyde is a demonstration school for the Reading & Writing Project (DCPS Master Plan). Very diverse student body with an active and involved PTA. The in-boundary enrollment is increasing as more young families move back to Georgetown and discover this excellent little red schoolhouse literally in their own backyards. I went to Hyde in the late 60s and my son is now attending. We love it!

Hyde is a rare gem in public schools. Since there is only one class per grade with one exception, I feel that everyone at the school personally knows my child. Hyde now has an excellent PE teacher who also puts on dances/shows for kids on Friday nights periodically throughout the year. A wonderful diverse school!!!!

Hyde has a strong arts program but there is a weak science program and absolutly no PE or PE teacher. Its a nice small school but unfortuneately, there are not many extras in the curriculum. I am a current parent at Hyde and my eldest children went to Hyde but only went for a few years. Hyde isn't the worst school, but it is not my number one reccomendation and does not meet my standards of a truely great school.

Wonderful school, excellent teachers and an amazing atmosphere. Kids do well academically (at least the motivated ones) and have a lot of fun. Multiracial, multicultural and with most parents really involved. Can't praise it enough!

Hyde is the best. Thats all there is to say. I'm not a parent I'm a student. I've gone to Hyde for 7 years but now I'm at Hardy. My years at Hyde have been the best years ever. The educaion is great and the people in the school, parents students and facilty are just like a big family because everyone knows eachother and thats one of the best thing about a school.
