Middle School

HP Middle School

Welcome to Hyde Park Middle School, where students develop their academic skills while exploring their talents and interests in an encouraging and supportive, Christ-centered environment. Small class sizes of 10-22 students, outstanding teachers, and a challenging college-preparatory curriculum make the difference in each student’s experience. Truths are discovered and learning is enhanced with interactive and inspiring classroom approaches. PreAP courses in Math and English begin in 7th grade and expand to include Science and U.S. History in 8th grade. Students at all grade levels are taught using PreAP strategies, establishing a framework of learning geared toward college-level academics.

HPMS provides a strong student culture with outstanding leadership opportunities and excellent extracurricular programs. At HP, athletics, fine arts, and academic competitions are designed to build character, instill discipline, and develop teamwork and leadership skills that carry over into the classroom and everyday life. Through spiritual retreats, weekly Chapel services, daily Bible classes, and the schoolwide Day of Service, students develop into confident Christian leaders with a strong sense of self and a desire to serve others.

Middle School is a time of expression and development. Our goal at Hyde Park is for students to leave 8th grade confident and prepared intellectually, socially, and spiritually for high school.
