Student Expectations

Every student at Hyde Leadership Charter School-Brooklyn is expected to take an active part in their education. Abiding by one of Hyde’s Five Words – Curiosity – students take responsibility for learning. They are asked to consider who they are as learners, what are their strengths and weaknesses, what attitudes get in the way of their success, and how will they strengthen both their skills and their mindsets for success. As much as our students learn academic content, they learn about themselves, and grow to become persistent, independent, and resourceful problem-solvers.
