I have a special needs son who was assigned to this school by CPS Office of Diverse Learners. He has been physically abused by at least 2 different CPS aids. They were made aware of both incidents and nothing was done.
For so many under represented black youths in Chicago, Hyde Park is one of many schools that accepts them no matter what there background is. It may not be always a good thing, but it gives them a chance - which is something we deserve. I graduated 2012 and I am proud to be a Hyde Parker. The school builds character is not for the weak hearted. You learn your place in society and how the world operates to make you better or worse. The counselors office and many of the coaches have been a great aid. They really want you to succeed and bring something back to let them know they did not fail. Because of that school I became a posse scholar and I attend the number four liberal arts college in the nation - Middlebury College. I owe my success to the students and staff of Hyde Park who inspired me in various of ways to go beyond expectations set upon me and many others like me. For that I am indebted to Hyde Park and Thank You. Take Care. -Cheswayo Mphanza (C/O 2012)
I am a proud graduate of Hype Park Academy s class of 2010. I transferred to Hyde Park my senior year and it was completely different from what I was used to. Despite the difference I had an amazing time, the students were great, the teachers were great and the staff were great. HP is not perfect and like any school suffers from underfunding and lack of discipline. However, I feel that HP is doing the excellent due to the resources they are given. My sister now attends HP and she loves it as well!!!
