Welcome to Hampstead Hill Academy

Hampstead Hill Academy is a PreK through 8th grade Baltimore City public charter school. Our elementary school is rated higher than 73% of schools in the whole state, and our middle school is rated higher than 93%  of the schools in the state.  HHA has been the highest performing elementary/middle school in Baltimore City Public Schools.







AwardBaltimore, Maryland, December 11, 2022 – Hampstead Hill Academy has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by Baltimore Sun Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

A Note from Principal Hornbeck – February, 2023

Why is being HHA’s principal so great after nearly 20 years?  Talented teachers, engaged parents, and the best students in Maryland make HHA the place to work. I take pride in seeing our volleyball, basketball, and soccer teams compete, middle school community circles, judging outstanding National History Day projects, hearing the HHA Players practice for the spring musical, cheering on our chess champions, listening to the sounds of musicians practicing as I walk the building, hosting record numbers of prospective families for our annual group tour, seeing students at recess on the playground and in the park, fist-bumping a dozen kids on the greentop each morning, and watching parents at “the wall” say “have a great day.”  Can you imagine having a job like that?  I can and I do!
