Our Stories & Outcomes



Hyde School prepared me to handle the triumphs and challenges of life. Working with our amazing students and their parents each day inspires me to keep reaching for my best.

Laura Gauld ' 76 P'08, '10, Head of School


My Hyde experience as a teenager taught me key life lessons that I still use today and now have the opportunity to pass on to our students. I love the spirit, enthusiasm and humor that our students and faculty bring each and every day. For over 25 years, my family has called Hyde home and now some of my greatest teachers have become our students.

Bob Felt '90 P '19, '22, Chief Engagement Officer


I love working at Hyde because of the community spirit in students, teachers, and families. When everyone is on the same page, magic happens!

My time at Hyde School has been very special. I've learned better ways to communicate, and have grown in my leadership. I have met people from all different parts of the world and made friends for life.

At Hyde School I was able to connect with my peers in a positive way. I learned how to interact in a meaningful and genuine way as a part of the school community.

Hyde School has untapped potential I didn't see in myself. I'm becoming who I want to be!

Over the past 4 years, we have seen a tremendous change in ourselves, and our son, and that has helped us collectively form a new and improved relationship as a family.

Somehow or another, that team of faculty and peers helped my son get a glimpse of what success looked like.

The bonds and friendships and core principles (Courage, Integrity, Leadership, Curiosity, and Concern) learned at Hyde last a lifetime. I feel so strongly about what I learned at Hyde School as a student I decided to send my son. The growth I have seen in him this past year is amazing.

Susie Galligos '91, Matt '24


It's been 11 years since my son (and I) graduated and we still reflect on its impact on our lives. My family embraced the words & principles in our friendships, our work lives, and most of all, in how we treat each other. We have strong adult relationships, built on truth, high standards, being each others keeper, and lots of laughs at our expense.

Linda McGuire P'11



During my formative years, I learned how to tolerate difficulty, how to accept responsibility, and how to serve. But most importantly, I learned that there is nothing greater or more worth seeking in life than the beauty and simplicity of a clear conscience.

One of the biggest attributes that my Hyde experience instilled in me was grit.  Perseverance, if guided by honesty, integrity and a positive attitude makes the obstacles in my life seem less daunting and my goals very attainable, thank you!!

I will alway cherish my 3 years at Hyde as a period of profound growth. Amazing things happen when you're part of a community deeply committed to unique potential!
