Hyde Leadership Charter School Brooklyn
Hyde Leadership Charter School – Brooklyn opened in September 2010. It is the second school in New York City affiliated with the Hyde Foundation, which also has schools in Connecticut and Washington, D.C., modeled after the Hyde School, a private boarding school in Maine. Hyde-Brooklyn opened with 132 students in kindergarten and first grade and will expand by one grade per year until it reaches its target capacity serving students in grades kindergarten to 5.
The school's executive director Dr. Sandra Dupree has 15 years of experience in Washington, D.C. and New York City public schools as a teacher, principal, professor of education and consultant, according to the school's website.
Like its sister school in the Bronx, Hyde Leadership Charter School, Hyde-Brooklyn offers students a traditional education that places a huge emphasis on character development and fostering parent involvement. Parents are asked to volunteer on field trips, in the classrooms, school office, and library. In addition, Hyde Leadership requires parents to attend monthly meetings, guided by a book entitled, The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have: The Hyde School Program for Character-based Parenting, by Malcolm Gauld, the founder of the first Hyde School.
Located in East New York, a high-crime neighborhood, the school is housed in PS/IS 328 Phyllis Wheatley School. School hours are from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Thursday. Dismissal is at 3 pm on Friday.
Every student participates in the performing arts in one the following areas: acting, dance vocal or visual arts. The school uses a traditional math program called Saxon Math.
Hyde serves a much lower percentage of children with special needs and English language learners than other schools in the district according to Department of Education Charter School Renewal Report. The average attendance rate for 2011-12 was 92.6 percent.
Admissions: By lottery. Preference is given to children in District 19. Check the school’s website for more information. (October 2013, information compiled from school's website and DOE reports)
