HYDE SCHOOLS, the leader in character education, are a network of college preparatory schools, with private boarding schools in Bath, Maine and Woodstock, Connecticut, serving students grades 9-12 and postgraduate studies.  Hyde also operates public charter schools in Brooklyn and Bronx, New York.
Hyde offers a wide range of courses, including AP, Honors, Summer Leadership & Academic programs.
At Hyde, academics are only part of what we teach.
Students get the tools they need to prosper and grow in this challenging world.
That’s because our approach to education is entirely different.
Our teachers focus on helping students reveal their character and develop the confidence they need to succeed in high school, college and beyond.
And the way we teach is different, too.
We offer leadership opportunities to all students as well as a dynamic leadership track for eligible students.
And, unlike any other school, we involve parents and the entire school community in the discovery process.
As a result, Hyde students and families strive to realize their fullest potential and are uniquely prepared to navigate the tough choices they face in everyday life. Hyde School - Be the Best Possible You HYDE.edu

School Notes:

The Hyde School campus in Woodstock, Connecticut is situated on the grounds of a former Catholic women’s college.  The 120-acre campus includes spacious classroom buildings and a student union with dining hall, 200-room dormitory facilities, two playing fields, a track and turf field, ropes course and a practice field.  The gymnasium includes weight and wrestling rooms and basketball courts.

One of the unique features of the Woodstock campus is a state-of-the-art, 1,017 seat theater, also home to the Opera New England and Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut.  Hyde’s Performing Arts program benefits from the theatre’s sophistication. Set in the rolling farmland of northeastern Connecticut just three hours from New York City, Woodstock is a haven of open fields and peaceful woodlands.
