NYU Teacher Residency Program with Hyde Leadership Charter School

Hyde Leadership Charter School

Hyde Leadership Charter School

Located in the Bronx borough of New York City, Hyde Leadership Charter School is part of a group of schools that develop the deeper character and unique potential of each student through its unique family-based character education program. The curricula undergirds the belief that students are more complex than annual data points, and that the fulfillment of a person’s life correlates not simply to test scores, but even more so to their relationships with others and the content of their character.

Hyde utilizes a holistic approach to inclusive character development, which is integrated into the entire school community. A core value system – courage, concern, curiosity, integrity, and leadership – guides relationships and priorities at Hyde. Five key principles create the foundation for the charter network’s culture: destiny, humility, conscience, truth, and brother’s keeper.

Knowing that families are crucial components to a child’s success, Hyde helps families embrace these core principles while engaging parents in uncommon ways. Family partnerships are enriched through activities such as parent discovery nights and family retreats. Hyde has a deep commitment to every family to fully participate and grow their unique potential by having equal access to space, resources, programming, and personnel at the school.

Faculty share in the Hyde philosophy of building a supportive, inclusive learning environment for all children. Special education is integrated into all classrooms where teachers co-teach and plan together. You will be met with a support system and a team of people ready to back you up as you become part of the Hyde community. Through this genuine and transparent school culture, you will gain the skills to become a life-changing teacher.

 The focus on cultural responsiveness was so important. There’s so much I learned that I never would have been able to handle on my own.

 I didn’t realize initially how unique the residency experience would be. Instead of only a short time in the classroom, in this extended period of time, I’ve learned so much more. I’ve changed my opinions and become more flexible in my understanding of what students need.
