Talk looks to help parents looking for success in school

Malcolm Gauld, President of Hyde Schools, will make a presentation at the Greenwich Hyatt Regency on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Mr. Gauld said his intention is to speak with parents and caregivers of students who have not found success in a traditional high school setting and who are exploring available options. The event is free and open to the general public.

Described by one parent as “the last stop in the realm of the normal,” Hyde Schools falls neither into the category of a traditional prep school, nor a therapeutic school that address behavioral and social issues with clinical treatment.

According to a press release, Hyde not only teaches students how to succeed, it teaches parents, as well.

Hyde assists parents in helping their teenagers develop the character and integrity they need to be successful in both their academic careers and life paths.

Hyde Schools specializes in family-based character education and opened in Bath, Maine in 1966.

It has grown to include a second boarding school in Woodstock N.Y. and three public charter schools in New Haven, Bronx, N.Y., and Brooklyn, N.Y.

Its primary goal, according to the school, is the personal growth of Hyde’s students and the school’s success is based on the acceptance that all constituents — students, teachers and parents — must strive for personal growth in order for Hyde’s students to achieve it.

In addition to being Hyde’s current leader, Mr. Gauld is the author of College Success Guaranteed: Five Rules to Make it Happen, and co-author of The Biggest Job We’ll Ever Have: 10 Priorities to Help Parents Meet the Challenge.
