Day in the Life of a Hyde Student

 

 

Grace Yu | Freshman

6:45 – Wake Up

A good morning always means a happy day, so waking up on time in the morning is really important to me.

7:15 – Dorm Inspection

This is very important to the dorm. It makes us have a good living habit.

7:30 to 7:55 – Breakfast

We have a lot of choices for breakfast. Fruit or bread are both good for our health. I would like to choose fruit and yogurt.

8:00 to 8:50 – World History

This is a really good way for me to learn history, and this is always a fun class.

8:55 to 9:45 – English

This is one of my favorite classes. We read some good books in this class that help me a lot with my English.

9:50 to 10:20 – Community Meeting or Break

We will have a good opportunity to learn from faculty or others.

10:25 to 11:15 – Pre-Calculus

This class is to prepare me for AP Calculus. This is a big challenge for me.

11:20 to 12:10 – Geometry

This is the most interesting part of math. I really want to learn more about this class.

12:15 to 12:45 – Lunch

Food always impacts motion in the afternoon. I always have a nice lunch.

1:15 to 2:05 – Chemistry

This is my only science class. We always learn interesting things here.

2:10 to 3:15 – Art

I didn’t like art before, but when I take part in the class, I start to love art. I try to find myself in the world of art.

3:30 to 5:30 – Athletics

This is my favorite part of the day, although most of the practices are very hard. We also have a few games during each season.

6:00 to 6:30 – Sit Down Dinner

This is a very different way to bond with others. We sit in groups or in our athletic teams.

7:30 to 9:30 – Study Hall

This is the time we get to finish our homework. Everyone works hard during study hall.

 

Eliza Burroughs | Junior

6:45 – Wake Up

To start off my day, I usually wake up at 6:45. I have to wake up my roommate, which takes five to ten minutes. Then I just get ready.

7:15 – Dorm Inspection

We go downstairs for inspection at 7:15, and that’s basically where our dorm captains go and make sure our rooms are up to inspection standards: Your bed is made, your floor is clean, that kind of stuff.

7:30 to 7:55 – Breakfast

Breakfast is usually buffet style so there are tons of different options, including a bunch of fruit, bagels, waffles, pancakes usually, french toast sometimes, eggs, oatmeal, tons of stuff. That’s exciting, huh?

8:00 to 8:50 – AP English

Right now we are studying and working towards the big AP English test at the end of the school year. We figure out how to do multiple choice questions and how to become better writers.

8:55 to 9:45 – AP U.S. History

Right now we’re learning about slavery and the colonization of America and those kinds of topics.

9:50 to 10:20 – Community Meeting/Break

There’s usually a school meeting where we all check in with each other or we get free time to grab a snack and relax for a little while.

10:25 to 11:15 – Ceramics

Our teacher is incredible. His ceramics are really his passion so it’s really awesome to learn from him. He’s so passionate about what we’re learning.

11:20 to 12:10 – Spanish

My spanish teacher is really great. She knows how to make learning fun and especially with languages, which has been something I’ve always struggled with because I have a very hard time memorizing things. She figures ways that make it easier to remember things and she’s a great, fun teacher.

1:15 to 2:05 – Chemistry

My chemistry teacher is also great. He’s been teaching chemistry for a really, really long time so he really knows how to teach kids the material.

2:19 to 3:15 – Pre-Calculus

My pre-calculus teacher makes learning very easy. She’s always there to help you out if you need anything or have any questions.

3:30 to 5:30 – Athletics

I’m on the indoor track team. Right now we are doing a lot of general fitness. Sometimes we go running, kickboxing, lift weights, or do yoga. Overall fitness and health is the goal.

6:00 to 6:30 – Dinner

Dinner is a pretty wide range of options. They’re all pretty healthy so that’s always nice to go and sit with some of your friends and just have a nice meal with them.

7:30 to 9:30 – Study Hall

You let everyone know where you are going to be during this time, whether it’s in the library or in the dorm. You take this time to sit and study quietly.

 

 

 

 

Michael Muench | Post Graduate

6:20 – Wake Up

It takes me ten minutes to wake up my roommate, I take a shower, wash my face, and pick my clothes out the night before. I brush my teeth and then head down to breakfast.

7:30 to 7:55 – Breakfast

I usually make a waffle for breakfast. I change it up sometimes with yogurt. I have to have my chocolate milk too.

8:00 to 8:50 – Government Class

My first class is Government and Governance. I am learning about the world and how we are governed. We are currently doing Allegory of the Cave. I love how the students are more involved in this class. There is constant discussion so we are all learning from each other.

8:55 to 9:45 – College Workshop/Academic Support

My next class I split between college workshop and academic support. College workshop is preparing me for making my own decisions: where I want to go to school and where my future lies. Academic support helps me set goals and stay organized.

9:50 to 10:20 – Community Meeting/Break

Community meetings are always positive; people get shoutouts, recognize each other’s strengths, and challenge each other. The faculty and students are both involved, vocalizing their opinions. No one can miss announcements because these are announced during meetings.

10:25 to 11:15 – College Writing

We are learning different writing skills that we may have forgotten in the past, and strengthening our writing.

11:20 to 12:10 – Chemistry

Chemistry with Mr. Smith is next. I am very intrigued by the sciences and learning how the world works. We are learning the basic terms right now, such as what matter is.

12:15 to 12:45 – Lunch

I get the same thing every day for lunch: A panini. I get rye bread, two pieces of turkey, two pieces of pepper jack cheese, green pepper, red onion, and spicy mayo. I like that lunch is interactive. There aren’t that many people so I can sit somewhere new every day and talk.

1:15 to 2:05 – Senior English

My second to last class is senior english. We did our college essays in the first couple of days which prevented procrastination. I was able to get my first draft out. We are now reading Gulliver’s travels.

2:10 to 3:00 – Foundations of Art

Foundations of Art is hard because I’m terrible at art, but I like working on it and getting better. We are doing still life drawings right now.

3:30 to 5:30 – Athletics

JV Soccer is quite fun. It’s a good time and I like my coach. I’m looking forward to lacrosse. Coming from a competitive state to Maine should be an interesting transition. Soccer and Lacrosse both share similar hand-eye coordination and teamwork; you can’t rely on one person, you have to trust your team. I’ve been playing lacrosse since the second grade.

6:00 to 6:30 – Dinner

Dinner is fun. The kitchen always makes healthy meals and I like that it is social time; I get to interact with people. After dinner, I get to relax and start my homework early.

7:30 to 9:30 – Study Hall

Study hall is going pretty well. I’m getting out of the habits I had at home of not doing homework. It’s still mandatory to do my homework, but now I have structure and I’m doing my own thing, too.
