Hyde IS NOT:

Over the last few years, Hyde School, one of the most respected boarding schools in Maine and nationally recognized for its character education approach, has been the target of a social media defamatory effort to malign the school’s good name.
Hyde has been and remains a transformative school that has helped countless students realize success, academically and personally. 
Every ten years since the school’s founding, Hyde has been accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Additionally, we are also proud members in good standing of The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS), and the Small Boarding Schools Association (SBSA).  Hyde is also an approved Maine school for the receipt of public tuition funds, which requires an annual review and approval from the Maine Department of Education.
