Good public schools are among the most important institutions in creating and maintaining successful communities. The Elmer A. Henderson: A Johns Hopkins Partnership School (K- Grade 8) and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center comprise the first new Baltimore public school building in East Baltimore in nearly 30 years. This unique university-community partnership has the extraordinary opportunity to create a high-performing school that serves a diverse, mixed-income community of students, families and teachers.
Expected to open in the fall of 2013, the new school (Henderson-Hopkins) will be located at 2100 Ashland Avenue. The East Baltimore Community School (EBCS), which is currently located at 1101 N. Wolfe Street, will be folded into Henderson-Hopkins, which will also reach a wider student community. Students will receive personalized learning in a $42 million, 90,000-square-foot facility on a 7-acre campus, which will be shared with the $10 million, 28,000-square-foot Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center.
