The Hyde School model of academics is represented through the prestige of the Learning Triangle: student, teacher, and subject at the core of our intellectual pursuits. The triangle recognizes the powerful relationships of discovery formed through learning. This approach forms a bond between the student and the teacher at the base of the triangle, in pursuit of a catalyzing subject. This catalyst serves to strengthen the bond between teacher and student through mutual investigation. When optimized, this powerful triangle becomes truly conscience-centered in its quest for knowledge.
Through this powerful core of academic attainment, Hyde values the process of learning in a profound manner, evaluating students with both an effort and achievement grade at every marking period. The effort grade reflects a student’s attitude, intellectual dedication, and character in the classroom. The achievement grade represents both a student’s mastery of course material and objectives, as well as the quality of work the student completes. Effort and achievement are combined in assigning a final course grade.
The mission of the Science Department at Hyde is to promote our students' growth as critical thinkers. We aim to couple the study of scientific principles with a desire to indulge a deep sense of wonder about the world around us, as well as to challenge our students in effectively communicating their understanding of the subject.
