Hathaway Brown School: A Leader in Girls’ Education

By Kathleen Osborne
 

 

     Founded in 1876, Hathaway Brown is committed to a fusion of academic and experiential learning. This co-ed Early Childhood and all-girls’ K-12 independent day school focuses on educational innovation as it prepares students to rise boldly to the challenges of our times and live out the HB motto of learning “not for school, but for life.”
     HB’s inclusive environment, outstanding faculty, and unique programs draw families from 72 communities across Northeast Ohio to its beautiful 16-acre Shaker Heights campus, which houses an aquatics center, invention lab, visual and performing arts spaces, and working television studio. Immersive academic, service, and cultural opportunities abound, and graduates attend many of the country’s top universities.

     The school is consistently honored by well-regarded educational institutions, social service organizations, businesses, professional societies, and journalistic publications. The number of HB students who have been named finalists or semifinalists in the prestigious Intel and Siemens science competitions far surpasses all other schools in Ohio and all independent girls' day schools in the United States. In 2010, more students at HB were recognized by the National Merit and National Achievement scholarship programs than any other member of the Cleveland Council of Independent Schools.
      HB has been named one of the NorthCoast 99 great workplaces for top talent in Northeast Ohio for 12 consecutive years. It is the only secondary school to receive the award throughout the history of the program. The school's athletics program is extremely well regarded and regularly honored, with two current State Champion and two State Runner-Up designations to its credit, along with numerous regional and divisional titles. And educational colleagues throughout the country consider HB a leader in the field. The 2010 Education Innovation Summit brought more than 600 educators from 110 public, private, and parochial schools in 30 U.S. states and Canada to HB to explore ways to improve offerings for all children.

     Since its beginning as "afternoon classes for young ladies" at the all-boys' private Brooks Military School in downtown Cleveland, Hathaway Brown School has been helping students find and pursue opportunities, maximize their own potential, and make a difference in the world. The school moved to its current location in Shaker Heights in 1927 and it is now home to 830 students in preschool through twelfth grade, 29 percent of whom are students of color. Twenty-seven percent of students received financial aid awards in 2011-2012. The school maintains small class sizes in all divisions, and the student:faculty ratio is 8:1. The school is generously supported by gifts from HB alumnae around the world, as well as parents, faculty members, and friends of the institution. As of June 30, 2011, the market value of HB's endowment was $41,095,187. The school offers extensive transportation services and a one-to-one technology program.
   For the last 25 years, HB has flourished under the leadership of Head of School Bill Christ. The school's unique academic architecture allows students of all ages to gain an extraordinarily sound foundation in core subjects and to pursue their passions through the signature Institute for 21st Century Education.
     The Center for Global Citizenship, one of the flagship programs of the Institute for 21st Century Education, was established because we believe today’s education model must place at its core an emphasis on a broad understanding of the world. Its job is to promote global understanding and citizenship, foster a deep appreciation for the cultures of the world, challenge students to critically think about the world’s most pressing global issues, and help students understand how the United States fits into a global context.
The Center has several dimensions: International Student Travel & Exchanges, The Global Scholars Program, The Harriet Mullin Barry Fellowship Program, and a regular Lecture Series. The Center for Global Citizenship oversees all HB international trips. During the 2010-2011 academic year, the Center offered trips/exchanges to India, El Salvador, Spain, Germany, Hong Kong, Canada, Turkey, France, Peru, Spain (Dance), Japan, and Australia. During the current academic year, the CGC is offering trips/exchanges to India, the Dominican Republic, France, Hong Kong, the British Virgin Islands, Panama, London, Cambodia, and Australia.
    The Global Scholars Program is a four-year course of study examining different regions of the world, global leaders, pertinent issues, and politics. The Harriet Mullin Barry Fellowship program was established in 2008 by Thomas C. Barry and Martha Barry Horsburgh ’65 to provide for international travel and research by rising junior Global Scholars at HB. The CGC sponsors a lecture series that brings in speakers who expose the girls to new ideas, challenges their thinking, and informs them of pressing global and domestic issues.
