    Hyde leadership school was the school for me. I came to hyde in 2003 from hillhouse. I have learned a lot since then. Teachers as well as staff made us students strive for or beyond excellent. I went to hyde thinking it was going to be all fun and games but boy was i in for a surprise. I learned how to stay focused. I made many new friends. Now i have a family away from home. Mr. Russell is a great guy. He's the father that every child need or ever needed in their lives. The teachers are there for students. Sports were great. Ms. Freer is an excellent person to get to know. She got me to college. ~Alexia~graduate 2005

    Hyde Leadership High School has proven to be best decision we made when selecting a high school for my son. The school's mission and focus has brought out leadership and athletic qualities in my child that I never knew were there.

    Hyde School in New Haven is a great place to send your student. I reccomend it. The teachers are caring and patient. Be careful about how much you give because that is the amount you will receive in return.
