Arlington Elementary/Middle School is a thriving school community in Baltimore’s Park Heights neighborhood, less than a mile from the city’s famous Pimlico race course. It serves more than 500 students in pre-k through grade 8, in a supportive academic environment where both faculty and students believe they can and will learn. As a community resource school, Arlington benefits from a close partnership with Park Heights Renaissance that brings services and supports into the school, reinforcing for students that their entire community is behind them and working with them toward success. A new partnership with the Johns Hopkins University is bringing innovative science teaching and learning to Arlington.
The Henderson-Hopkins School (formerly East Baltimore Community School) is a K-8 charter school that is part of a unique university-community partnership to create a high performing school that serves a diverse, mixed-income community of students and families in East Baltimore.
Temporarily located at 1101 N. Wolfe Street, the school’s current enrollment is approximately 215 students in grades kindergarten, first, second, third, sixth and seventh. Grades four, five and eight will be added incrementally as current students advance.
During the 2012-2013 academic year, the school will relocate to a new $30 million, 90,000 square foot facility on a 7 acre campus located at 2100 Ashland Ave. The school will share the campus with The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center, a new $10 million, 28,000 square foot facility.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Education, in partnership with Morgan State University’s School of Education and Urban Studies, operates the school. Committed to evidence-based programs, the school uses the most contemporary, effective curriculum to improve student performance. In addition, the school takes a holistic approach to developing the potential of each student and emphasizes individualized learning, and family and community involvement supported by wrap-around services. The expertise of a number of Johns Hopkins University entities will be fully maximized to support the school, including its schools of medicine, nursing, public health, and music.
