Kids Go to School, but Families Go to Hyde

The last two weekends of October saw Hyde School’s Bath and Woodstock campuses welcome families for its annual fall family weekend. From Thursday night through Sunday morning, parents participated in class rotations with their students, watched their sons and daughters participate in athletic competitions, took part in performances and pep rallies, and participated in the family component of a Hyde School education.

 The Hyde School family education program provides guidance and support to parents and their students, and focuses on helping every individual discover his/her full potential.

The program’s messages are straightforward: the way adults live their lives must be consistent with the way they raise and teach children; principles are the most powerful force in influencing children in a positive way; and parents need to focus on personal growth to allow their best parenting instincts to emerge.

“The family program at Hyde asks parents to model for their children how to handle life’s accomplishments with humility and life’s adversities with character,” shared head of school Bob Felt. “As the primary teachers in our children’s lives, we cannot ask them to do anything that we are unwilling to do ourselves.”
