About Hyde: Boilerplate

Hyde School educates families

The whole person philosophy that guides all learning and teaching at Hyde’s boarding campus in Bath, Maine, and through public school initiatives in Bronx and Brooklyn, New York and affiliate schools in Orlando, Florida and Lanham, Maryland, is to develop the individual by developing their inner leadership. Along with a rigorous academic and athletic program, students participate in singer-songwriter workshops, preforming and visual arts programs, student-mentoring programs in Hyde’s New York charter schools, and internship and volunteer experiences that help to apply learning to real life. Hyde’s unique character education program helps not only students, but parents, siblings, and grandparents. Hyde teaches that it is never too late to fulfill your unique potential and gain the tools needed for a successful life. Ninety-eight percent of Hyde School graduates are accepted to four-year colleges. To learn more about Hyde School, its summer leadership program, and parenting and teen workshops, log on to Hyde.edu.

Joseph “Joey” Gauld is the founder of the first U.S. school to base its program on character education, Hyde School. He received the prestigious Sanford N. McDonnell Award for Lifetime Achievement in Character Education from Character.org in 2016, fifty years after the first school opened its doors in 1966. Today there are two public leadership charter schools in Bronx and Brooklyn, New York, two affiliate schools, one in Lanham, Maryland and one in Orlando, Florida, and the original independent boarding school in Bath, Maine. These schools use a family-based character education approach that places value on an individual’s character and unique potential. They embrace each student’s family as part of the Hyde community, which allows the students to grow and learn in a comprehensively supportive environment. Hyde Schools have been featured on CBS 60 Minutes, ABC 20-20 and NBC Today and other media. Mr. Gauld continues to work at the schools, particularly as a consultant to the urban schools and the Hyde Foundation as a facilitator in seminars for parents.
