About Hynes

Hynes is proud of our culturally rich and diverse population. Students are taught by a highly qualified and certified teaching staff who use data to drive instruction. Courses for gifted & talented, French immersion, computer literacy, physical education, music, band, gifted in the arts and theater are offered. In addition to our core and elective teaching staff, Hynes employs four interventionist teachers,  a social worker, nurse, and English as a second language teacher. Literacy and math facilitators measure student progress quarterly and work to ensure student achievement.

Before and after school care programs are offered for a fee to students whose families are in need of this service. Morning breakfast is available, and after-school care provides an afternoon snack, a quiet time to work on homework, as well as outdoor playtime activities.

Hynes Charter School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The school’s enrollment is approximately 580.


Edward Hynes Charter School admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Edward Hynes Charter School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin, in admission of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
