Hampstead Hill Academy (HHA) students outperformed their peers in City Schools and the state as a whole on the 2019 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) standardized tests.

HHA's performance on PARCC puts the school first in the city for 7th grade reading and second in 6th and 8th grade reading. HHA students were second in 6th and 7th grade math and 3rd in Algebra I. HHA is number one for performance among middle school African-American students in reading and second with the same demographic in math.

This success follows a number of notable achievements at HHA over the past few years. In 2018, HHA was the only Baltimore City public elementary/middle school to receive a five-star rating from the Maryland State Department of Education.

That same year HHA Principal Matt Hornbeck received a "Heart of the Schools Award," which recognizes exceptional leaders who have demonstrated exemplary innovation, execution, and leadership, building strong school cultures.

In 2015, HHA received the prestigious EGATE award (Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education) from the Maryland State Department of Education and was designated a GAL Site (Gifted and Advanced Learning Site) by Baltimore City Public Schools.

BCP is very proud of HHA and the outstanding achievements of all the BCP schools.
