Henderson-Hopkins School

The Elmer A. Henderson: A Johns Hopkins Partnership School and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center, together called Henderson-Hopkins, is the first new Baltimore public school built in more than 20 years. Envisioned to catalyze the revitalization of East Baltimore, the project integrates innovative educational facilities with community and recreational resources and reflects the neighborhood’s urban fabric.

Good public schools are critical institutions in supporting and developing successful communities. Conceived as a community hub housing both an innovative early childcare center and school and shared community and recreational resources, the Henderson-Hopkins school was borne out of a need to support the underserved existing community, and to act as a magnet for new development. The overall campus will serve as a community hub for family engagement, citizenship, and wellness.

For community use, the auditorium lobby is accessed through double doors adjacent to the school’s main entrance, and can also be entered from within the school. Folding seating on telescopic risers accommodates an audience of 304; acoustical finishes throughout cater to both musical and dramatic performance requirements; and backstage storage and multipurpose spaces allow for flexibility of use.
