johns hopkins university school of education

The Johns Hopkins School of Education, a vibrant community of scholars dedicated to understanding and solving the most challenging problems facing education. Through their innovative graduate and doctoral programs, students learn to address the most pressing needs of PK-12 schools, as we recruit and prepare highly qualified teachers to building school leadership capacity, to helping children with special needs, to developing research-based curricula and closing the achievement gap, and to addressing the social and emotional needs of children, youth and families.

The Urban Teachers program at the Johns Hopkins School of Education prepares new teachers to succeed through a clinical training model similar to 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.

Johns Hopkins School of Education is ranked among the top graduate schools of education by U.S. News & World Report.
