    This a loving community school. They are not perfect but they are definitely not the worst place your child can get an education. The teachers and administrative staff are committed to the scholastic greatness of the children in their care. They have many programs that reach out to not just their scholars but also to their families and the families in the community.

    I have been a Perry Street Prep parent since the school was Hyde I have to say since becoming Perry Street Prep I feel as if the school is declining over the last few years I have seen Perry Street Prep replace many staff and teachers who took a genuine concern for the students with very young and seemingly inexperienced teachers students test scores have declined and because of low test scores the high school is now closing its doors. This year alone Perry Street Prep has replaced over 50% of its staff which is disconcerting to students and parents. Now a tier 3 school I wonder if Perry Street Prep is actually the college prep school it claims to be. As a parent I loved the fact that all my children could attend school together no matter what grades they were in. Now I feel as if I need to seek out another alternative.

    It was cool when it was hyde...Now its not. Teachers dont care and constantly have attitudes

  • (3 years ago)

    I am a student at Perry St Prep and was also here when it was Hyde. When the school was Hyde it was ran smoothly the students were like family and the staff seemed like they cared. Now that we have moved to a different building and changed the name nothing really seems the same. It is too crowded the teachers and head of school are all new and careless and they are completely unorganized. There is alot of drama that takes place in and outside of school where the police had to be called several times. People may believe that the school is ran as if it were still Hyde but its NOT ! Fortunately I am leaving and its only my 10th grade year.

    The Hyde process demands the best an individual has to offer. Students profit from the extremely professional and dedicated faculty and staff. A Hyde graduate is a critical thinker challenged to live with integrity courage honesty concern for others and leadership skills. Families benefit from Hyde experience in untold ways. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
