From the Desk of Matt Hornbeck
From my own life experience, I can attest that we have come a long way toward universal justice in this country, but we are not there yet.
The U.S. Census Bureau acknowledged this fact when it reported that those with a bachelor's degree earn on average $1 million more over their lifetime than those with only a high school diploma.
- Congressman Elijah CummingsAugust 3, 2015Dear Hampstead Hill Family,Thank you for choosing to send your child to Hampstead Hill Academy (HHA)! HHA is proud to begin an 18th year of successful partnership with our charter operator, the Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP). The staff of HHA and BCP welcomes you and your family to our great school. We are excited to be one of many wonderful reasons families choose to work, play, stay and send their kids to school in Baltimore City! HHA is a safe, nurturing, diverse, family-friendly neighborhood school with rigorous, effective academic programs and exciting, engaging, extracurricular activities. We believe all parents want the same thing for their children: more and better opportunities for college and career. We believe in the importance of the arts, and we want our students to be great communicators, listeners and writers. Our students will be leaders who are productive, persistent, responsible, caring, and healthy members of the greater community. This year promises to be great as we set high expectations for learning, and have some serious fun (have you seen our new playground addition?). Our test scores are among the highest in the state, but learning at our school means much more than test scores. We want our academic programs to come alive for students. Our students will move beyond the acquisition of knowledge to produce work that is unique and exciting; projects and papers that communicate, persuade and convince. Ultimately, we want HHA girls and boys to become the thinkers, innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders our city and nation require. This year’s entering kindergarten students are the college class of 2032 – and we’re glad to be an important part of their path. (click here to read the entire letter).
