The Elmer A. Henderson: A Johns Hopkins Partnership School opened Jan. 2, the first new public school building in East Baltimore in more than 20 years.

The $43 million K-8 school is the cornerstone for East Baltimore Development Inc.'s ongoing efforts to redevelop and re-energize an 88-acre swath of East Baltimore just north of Johns Hopkins Hospital with a science and technology center, new homes, graduate student housing, a park and retail amenities.

Originally known as East Baltimore Community School, the school had operated since 2009 from modular, temporary classrooms just north of the current campus. Construction on Henderson-Hopkins' 90,000-square-foot facility began in June 2012.
With contemporary architecture and flexible learning spaces, Henderson-Hopkins is designed to be one of Baltimore's most progressive schools, serving 368 students on the first day of school and 567 students at capacity.

The Johns Hopkins University School of Education, in partnership with Morgan State University's School of Education and Urban Studies, will operate the school. Specifically, the Johns Hopkins School of Education has the primary responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the school, with Morgan assuming the governance representation of the partnership.
