Mission Statement

Founded by educator Joseph W. Gauld in 1966, Hyde School was established on the belief that “every individual is gifted with a unique potential that defines a destiny.”  This founding statement guides Hyde’s mission – “Develop Character to Discover Unique Potential.”   Developing character is the key to unlocking one's unique potential.

Hyde School's mission is fulfilled through our integrated approach to education, character, and family.  The cornerstones of Hyde's character curriculum are the Five Words which have adorned our school shield since our founding – Courage; Integrity; Leadership; Curiosity; and Concern – along with our Five Principles – Destiny; Humility; Conscience; Truth; and Each Other’s Keeper.  These core beliefs and values create a character culture which honors the unique potential in all of us.
