Mission Statement: 

 “Hynes… quality education shaping leaders for a changing world.”

Our Vision:

    The stakeholders of Hynes Charter School envision-

  • Students who share and appreciate differences by being kind, cooperative, peaceful, and respectful, who are critical thinkers and lifelong learners, and value a healthy lifestyle.
  • Faculty and staff who are professional educators committed to sustained improvement over time.
  • A research-based curriculum which is progressive, balanced, and enriching.
  • Parents who are participative and committed to the Hynes mission and program.
  • A campus which is state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly, located in Lakeview and functions as a hub of the community.
  • Achievements that will include continued SACS accreditation, NAEYC accreditation, and a Blue Ribbon.


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 students are required to comply with the uniform policy.  A handbook was provided to each child at the beginning of the school year.

Re-registration for currently enrolled students will be January 11, 2012 to January 18, 2012.
