Celebrating Successes

The Hyde Park Academy of Science and mathematics would like to share with you some of the successes celebrated by our students, parents, and staff during the 2012-2013 school year.

While we are certainly devoted to the advancement of learning in all of the academic areas, we believe strongly in the development of our students’ aesthetic interests as well. As Leonardo da Vinci so ably demonstrated, we believe in helping our students develop a deep love of learning. While our students are enrolled in a very advanced academic program, we want them to develop skills so that when the time is appropriate they have the ability to pursue whatever profession they desire. As a result of our pedagogy, you will see that our students participate in a wide variety of activities and competitions.
