I feel very lucky to have my child at this school. It has a nice neighborhood feel and it is consistently one of the highest performing elementary/middle schools in Baltimore City. The teachers are dedicated and turnover is low. The principal is motivated, accessible (very!), and focused on taking a whole-child approach to education. My child's class size is small and there are plenty of school-wide events and "extras" to keep students engaged. The parent and community support also is impressive (PTO, Friends of Hampden, and community partners).

Need more monitoring...especially after school. The workers including helpers need to learn how to communicate with a respectful tone and not come off as a bully. Im an adult and i dont accept being talked down to.

Posted March 04, 2017- a parentI have two children at this school (2nd grade and kindergarten). They have both been offered opportunities for gifted and advanced learning and come home happy and brimming with knowledge every day. They enjoy recess, art, and reading time in the gorgeous new library. My husband and I are so happy with the challenging curriculum at Hampden and the excellent quality of the teaching.

Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting. Keep reading to learn more about alternative schools and their impact on college admissions.
