The Henderson-Hopkins School (formerly East Baltimore Community School) is a pre-kindergarten through grade eight 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 relocated to a new $30 million, 90,000 square foot facility on a 7 acre campus located at 2100 Ashland Avenue. The school shares the campus with The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center, a $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.
The Weinberg libraries have brought back the joy and beauty in not only reading but being a place where students can come to read and relax.
