Charting its beginnings to 1909 as the College Courses for Teachers, the Johns Hopkins School of Education is today a recognized global leader in education research, policy, and practice.

From those first days, the school has been defined by service to our students, to our communities, and to each other through ever-growing professional offerings and through collaboration with school districts, organizations, and agencies in our home city of Baltimore, throughout the state of Maryland, and across the country.

Our legacy is one of leadership, innovation, and scholarship in addressing education’s most-pressing issues in our nation’s classrooms and communities. We count among our number historic as well as present-day leaders in education: faculty, alumni, staff, donors, friends and, of course, students, who all share an extraordinary commitment to making a difference in the lives of learners everywhere.

In the late 19th century, Johns Hopkins University led the way in transforming the practice of medicine through rigorous application of evidence. Building on that foundation, we have the opportunity to transform education in the 21st century, putting success, safety, and well-being within the reach of all students.
