When asked “Why Hyde Park?” our families answer that this community is like a family.
A quick glance at the successes of our graduates underscores the incredible opportunities open to those leaving Hyde Park Schools' halls for universities across the nation and the world. But what is found beyond the numbers makes Hyde Park a one-of-a-kind community.
The people who make up the HPS community come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. Some students continue a Hyde Park family legacy while others are enjoying their first year at HP. These differences blend together through the shared experience of being Hyde Park Panthers. Our families reach out through community service (by individuals, groups, and through our Day of Service) as well as special events designed to include Austin residents in our fun (such as the County Fair).
The HPS community bolsters and supports its own through the very hardest times, including loving and praying with families through grave illness, job struggles, and the loss of loved ones. In equal measure, our community comes together to celebrate victories large and small.
