As a leading graduate school of education, we build on a century-long foundation of excellence in leadership and service. But we are still young. Established as a standalone division of Johns Hopkins University in 2007, the School of Education was ranked among the top education schools in the country the following year — and every year thereafter.

Through our wide-ranging academic programs, we are the largest producer of new teachers for public schools in Baltimore City, our home community — where we also operate Henderson-Hopkins, one of the city’s top elementary/middle schools.

Our research and policy centers are recognized around the country for their evidence-based work in school-based health and safety, graduation improvement, equitable practices, social-emotional learning, tutoring, family engagement, literacy, counseling, and much more.


The mission of Johns Hopkins School of Education is to generate knowledge to inform policy and practice and educate society to address the most important challenges faced by individuals, schools, and communities.
