school is based on awesome ideologies, but sometimes management could be better.
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 4, 2015
Great teachers and leaders to learn from. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the kids and building unique close relationships with the comminty. Great learning environment for the children. Some people on the Board sometimes did not listen closely to our concerns which was not fair.
Ill equipped, unorganized and low quality services
3rd Grade Instructional Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 18, 2015
I appreciate my experience with Hyde solely for my time with my wonderful students. Besides being able to teach these magnificent students, my experience with the organization itself was horrendous. Everything was done haphazardly and without the consideration of the staff, and many of the teachers lacked the knowledge of the subjects they were teaching.

You work long hours and once a week you stay later for faculty meetings. Once a month you need to stay even later than the faculty meetings and that does not include PT conference nights or Family days.
If you do not volunteer for projects outside of your long hours you are looked as not wanting to reach for your "unique potential".
The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the children and parents. There are a lot of cases within the population of children attending this school but it is the best part of the job!
Management is overworked as well and they seem as they are robots. You can see it on their faces if you just look at them walking through the hallways. Definitely not a place to be
long hours means they feed you.
lunch is a luxury, too many meetings which interrupts your own break during the day
4th Grade ELA Teacher (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 25, 2014
I worked here for two years, and it was okay. I was paid a little more than DOE, but I worked longer hours and worked harder, as there was NO curriculum or resources available to me. Leadership was terrible when I was there. In fact, there was no leadership. Most of the staff left the year I quit because of the lack of support and structure. The school has a great character program, but the academics were awful.
character program, parental support, support for ells
Elementary School Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 8, 2014
I have worked at hyde for the past 8 years and I love the culture. A typical work day is from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm. The days are long hard a nd grueling. I wish management was a little bit more supportive with helping staff grow. The hardest part of my job is going home everyday know there is so much more to do and dealing with adult attitudes. Although there are challenges I enjoy working with hunts point families.
Wonderful teachers, students, and parents; needs consistent management
English Language Arts Teacher, Middle School (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 22, 2014
Over the years I learned how to create strong relationships with families, work with different management styles, and mentor new teachers. The most enjoyable part of working at Hyde was the encouragement to find one's unique potential. The hardest part of the job was getting used to the annual turn over in teachers, administration, and curriculum.
many opportunities for professional development
too much staff turn over; annual/bi-annual curricular changes
Teacher (Current Employee) – Bronx, Ny – June 1, 2014
Hyde is unique because it cares not only about teaching students academics but about developing their (and your) character. This means that Hyde truly works to raise well-rounded students who can confidently go forward. Whether you teach at Hyde or work in another role, it is important that you are self-motivated to help your students and yourself. Hyde will partner with you and could truly change your life.
flexible attitude, friendly and fun co-workers, great kids, based on long-standing private school model
easy to put in long hours and not even realize it!
