2 Baltimore schools get upgrades with help from Johns Hopkins University

Aug. 28, 2013
Johns Hopkins and the Baltimore district each put in $800,000 to pay for renovation at Margaret Brent and Barclay schools.

Renovations at two public schools in Baltimore--Margaret Brent and Barclay--have been completed with the help of funds from The Johns Hopkins University. The Baltimore City district matched the university's $800,000 contribution, enabling the two schools to replace badly worn, inadequate, out-of-date restrooms; renovate their cafeterias; create more welcoming and secure entrances; and install windows and doors to admit more daylight.
