You may know some schools where they give effort grades. But how many do you know where they really mean something? Only at Hyde.
Hyde’s rigorous college-preparatory curriculum is made up of core academic subjects that are enhanced by our unique approach to learning—one in which you are not evaluated simply by test, homework, and project grades. Your attitude toward learning, your concern for the progress of your classmates, and the effort you put forth to fulfill your course requirements are equally important to the Hyde faculty and your fellow students. At Hyde, students receive both an effort and achievement grade for their classroom work, and both grades are averaged into each student’s final grade.
In additional to challenging themselves in the classroom and putting their best effort into homework, Hyde students are expected to:
- Demonstrate a desire to be lifelong learners
- Take risks by choosing courses that challenge them rather than those that accommodate natural abilities
- Act out of concern to support their peers with academic struggles
- Take leadership roles in the classroom and in the community
- Hold high expectations for themselves and their classmates
98% of Hyde students are accepted to four-year colleges.
