The Harford County Public School (HCPS) System is dedicated to providing a quality instructional
program to all students. The achievement of this goal is dependent on effective communication with our
community. The HCPS web site is one of many tools we have instituted to achieve our communication goals. As
a community, Harford County is fortunate to boast a cooperative relationship with the parents, local
government, and the
business community. These collaborative partnerships have the potential to serve our student population in
ways that the school system cannot do alone.
As you browse the content of this web site you will learn about system-wide programs and services and
the individual schools within our system. The school profile format informs the public of the
demographics related to each individual school. Understanding our schools allows parents and the
community to best work in partnership with them in achieving success for all students. Through your
interaction with the various elements of this web site you will obtain evidence of the successful
performance of the HCPS System. Schools should satisfy a community’s reasonable expectation that they
are performing in a manner that allows students to achieve academic success.
In search for the desired excellence in our schools, the Board of Education of Harford County, the
Office of the Superintendent, and all central curriculum and operations offices work together to focus
on the needs of our schools. The updating of information on this web site will allow the public to stay
current with the cyclical process of budget development, enrollment projections, school performance
indicators, public meetings, and other topics of public interest.
