Located in the quaint and historic shipbuilding city of Bath, Maine, on the Kennebec River, the Hyde School campus was founded in 1966. Formerly the estate of shipbuilder John S. Hyde, the sprawling 145-acre New England estate includes the historic Hyde Mansion and carriage house, which houses classrooms and offices. Other prominent facilities nestled around the estate include the Wheeler Library & Academic Wing, an all-inclusive athletic center with field house, wrestling room, entertainment center, weight and cardio rooms overlooking the 1915 Sunken Garden, Health Center, bookstore, and café, the Student Cultural Center, the Spiritual Center, three playing fields, including a turf field, an all-weather track, indoor tennis and basketball courts, and several dormitories. Year-round, students and faculty enjoy miles of wooded running, bicycling, and cross-country skiing trails that extend beyond the campus. The campus includes a ropes course with zip line, a 600-acre wilderness facility located in the remote and pristine Bigelow Mountains in Eustis, Maine, running, biking, and cross-country ski trails, state-of-the-art music recording studio, climbing wall, and ice skating ponds. At HYDE SCHOOLS, academics are only part of what we teach. Students get the tools they need to prosper and grow in this challenging world. That’s because our approach to education is entirely different. Our teachers focus on helping students reveal their character and develop the confidence they need to succeed in high school, college and beyond. And the way we teach is different, too. We offer leadership opportunities to all students as well as a dynamic leadership track for eligible students. And, unlike any other school, we involve parents and entire school community in the discovery process. As a result, HYDE students and families often realize their fullest potential and are uniquely prepared to navigate the tough choices they face in everyday life. Today we serve almost 2,000 students and families in private and public settings.
