I have been a Perry Street Prep parent since the school was Hyde I have to say since becoming Perry Street Prep I feel as if the school is declining over the last few years I have seen Perry Street Prep replace many staff and teachers who took a genuine concern for the students, with very young and seemingly inexperienced teachers, students test scores have declined and because of low test scores the high school is now closing its doors. This year alone Perry Street Prep has replaced over 50% of its staff which is disconcerting to students and parents. Now a tier 3 school I wonder if Perry Street Prep is actually the college prep school it claims to be. As a parent I loved the fact that all my children could attend school together no matter what grades they were in. Now I feel as if I need to seek out another alternative.

I am a student at Perry St Prep and was also here when it was Hyde. When the school was Hyde it was ran smoothly, the students were like family and the staff seemed like they cared. Now that we have moved to a different building and changed the name nothing really seems the same. It is too crowded, the teachers and head of school are all new and careless, and they are completely unorganized. There is alot of drama that takes place in and outside of school where the police had to be called several times. People may believe that the school is ran as if it were still Hyde but its NOT ! Fortunately I am leaving and its only my 10th grade year.

The Hyde process demands the best an individual has to offer. Students profit from the extremely professional and dedicated faculty and staff. A Hyde graduate is a critical thinker challenged to live with integrity, courage, honesty, concern for others and leadership skills. Families benefit from Hyde experience in untold ways. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Hyde Leadership PCS is the number leader in charater development and family renewal. It is the only school that believes that the primary classroom is in the home. If a child builds character then academics will follow. Hyde is the best!

I graduated from Hyde in 2005. When I first attended the school I could honestly say I did not like it but was pushed and challenged by teachers and my fellow peers who only wanted the best. From athletics to academics Hyde is a great place to be and I love this and would recommend it to everyone !!!

I am a graduate from Hyde LPCS and I must say that the life skills that the school instills in its students shows that the future for this country is bright. Not only does the school produce leaders, but it also teaches children and young adults to always to remember where they came from and to challenge their peers and those who look up to them

As a parent of a current 9th grader, I see more positive things in-store for Hyde. In the Fall students will be attending a new state of the art facility which will impact the students in a very positive way. Students, keep your heads up, I envision you are on your way to some very positive things happening in your future.

This is my children's second year at Hyde and I am very dissapointed. The teachers lack organization and follow through. My daughter was a straight A student at her school in Montgomery County, here her grades have dropped to C's and D's. Her teacher tells me she is doing 'fine' and then she brings home these grades? Not fine to me! My son is in first grade and he is bored doing the same work he was doing last year. I am very active at this school and I have been extremely supportive, however, I am looking for a new school for my children to transfer to, hopefully by Christmas Break.

I have never gone through so many unnecessary changes. I can only speak on the elementary admin staff. They are inconsistant and very sparatic and unorganized. They talk a good game but there is very little follow through. The school is old and needs to be brought up into the 21st century. Over all the staff is polite and the teachers even know the children that aren't in their class. My child had an awsome teacher.

Yes the quality of the academic program at hyde is good. The students there have an easy curriculum compared to other schools. They also offer extended help if a child is failing. Well i am a little disappointed about the extracurricular programs they really have none for middle school which was one of the reason why i put my child in hyde. I was really mislead on the sports opportunities.They said they offered several programs but as of yet we have seen none. The oe thing that i do like is that they encourage parent involvement as a matter of fact it is a requirement for parent involvement or your child will not be able to attend the following year. The rules at hyde are a little to strict.

I am a six year parent at Hyde Leadership Public Charter School. I have two children attending there and from my experience, Hyde is a very good school. I have seen this school grow over the years and I have also seen it face some challenges. Even with the struggles, I have seen Hyde pull through like a true trooper! I have all intentions of letting my children continue to attend Hyde through 12th grade. The character development of my children and other children that I have had the pleasure of seeing has been nothing short of phenomenal.

My step-daughter has attended Hyde since Kindergarten and I have always been impressed with their teaching principles and the quality of education she has received. The school does not believe in a rote learning environment which forces the students to use higher level thinking skills, which fits quite well into what my daughter has to deal with at home. With that said, I do have some concern with the surrounding environment as well as the students who come from areas that do not foster the same type of behavior that would enhance the school's overall learning environment. Much of that has to do with how the city and the school work together to ensure the safety of the students outside of Hyde's area of responsibility. Unfortunately, there is not enough adequate protection in the surrounding areas to so.

I worked at this school last year and many of the teachers have little experience teaching. Character education is stressed while many students continue to have huge problems learning how to read and do math. It's also sad that the principles and guidelines are not really lived, especially when they are tested.

I have been very disappointed in Hyde and its inablity to secure the students from the outside influences of the community. My perception is that the teachers are very stressed and unable to support the 'grand' mission of Hyde. I'm very sorry that I enrolled my child there.

I believe Hyde Public Chartered School to be one of the best schools in the DC area. My daughter has been a student at Hyde since the year 2000 and I have seen nothing but academic excellence from her. I am very pleased with Hyde's strong dedication to character devlopement and the principles that they instill in their students. My 5 year old daughter just started attending Hyde in September 2004, and I am very proud to have both of my daughters attend Hyde. And to know that they can grow with Hyde all the way through 12th grade is nothing but another great benefit for me. Hyde is a very good school to be a part of.

I think this school is a very good example of how a school should be ran from the principal to the parents from the students to the teachers. I have been impressed with this school from the first time I received the literature in the mail concerning the school. I feel that Hyde can't do anything but go up. I appreciate the fact that Hyde does not lower the bar for no one not even the parents.

It's really a great school where the focus is not only on the child, but also on the parents. They help to develop a family oriented environment which my daughter really loves. It also requires a lot of parent involvement which I really love because I like to know what's going at my daughter's school, and I also like being involved.
