Hopkins Lloyd Community School (HLCS) engages students, parents and the community to work toward the common goals of successful for our children, while enriching parents’ lives as well. We offer small class sizes (18:1 maximum) in grades K3-5 thanks to the SAGE program. Hopkins Lloyd Community School provides long, uninterrupted blocks of literacy and math in accordance with MPS’ comprehensive plans to boost these critical skills. Our partners at the Marquette College of Education boost our reading program while our City Year partners support small-group intervention for students. Students at HLCS have access to a library, technology in the classroom and in computer labs as well as coursework in music and art with our Arts@Large partners. We use research-based strategies to improve student achievement and to continuously monitor our progress. HLCS provides special education services and access to a community learning center, offering tutoring and extracurricular activities. Our school is a safe, positive learning environment in which our students can grow academically, while building connections to their community.
