Our Mission is as Unique
as Each of Our Students

At Hyde Park Day School (HPDS), our sole purpose is to help bright first through eighth grade students with learning disabilities reach their full potential. We believe students who receive the appropriate intervention can develop the skills necessary to keep pace in traditional classrooms. We achieve this by teaching our students how to leverage their significant strengths in areas that are difficult, and how to self-advocate for the tools that they need to be successful.

We transform our students from self-doubters to self-champions.

Our students regain self-confidence and courage, and no longer feel like they are the only ones in the classroom that “don’t get it”. This transformation opens new doors of possibility for students who have been stuck, frustrated, and discouraged; it is nothing short of amazing.

Our approach is what sets us apart.
It’s what makes our students successful.

Individualized Program

Our students are not expected to adapt to standard instruction. Instead, we employ talented staff, state-of-the-art technology, and integrated services to develop deeply individualized academic programs.

See the difference


We constantly reference current industry-leading research and studies for ongoing guidance on curriculum and general life skill development, and our nimbleness allows us to make updates quickly.

COVID-19 Update

HPDS is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.  We are currently closed and will remain so until it is deemed safe to re-open.  We would like to send a shout out to our teachers and staff for ramping up our distance learning program on short notice and continuing to provide quality instruction to our students during this time. Together, as a community, we will get through this challenging time. Until then, please stay safe and healthy at home.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, HPDS will be closed until further notice.
