Urban Teachers Program

Every child deserves a great teacher, yet students in urban districts often receive the least effective and least experienced teachers available.  

The Urban Teachers program at the Johns Hopkins School of Education prepares new teachers to succeed through a clinical training model as rigorous as the Johns Hopkins model for training doctors. This four-year collaborative program includes a 14-month residency working in urban schools prior to becoming a lead teacher; graduate coursework leading to the award of a Master of Science in Education degree, which is completed in two years and is clinically based, allowing for teachers to practice their skills immediately in the classroom; and three years of coaching and mentoring to assist in developing outstanding practice once in the field.

The Johns Hopkins School of Education and Urban Teachers collaboration will prepare candidates to improve student outcomes in high-need schools and become a highly effective teacher. 

Those interested in the Johns Hopkins School of Education Urban Teachers collaborative program must go through a two-stage application process: 1) applicants must first apply and be admitted into Urban Teachers, and 2) once accepted into Urban Teachers, candidates must then apply for admission to the Johns Hopkins School of Education's master's degree.

The need for highly effective urban teachers is urgent. Interested in becoming a great urban teacher? Apply here.
