Hathaway Brown, commonly referred to as HB, is an all-girls private school located in Shaker Heights, Ohio. The school serves pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students.[3]

Hathaway Brown is a member of the National Coalition of Girls' Schools, National Association of Independent Schools, and Cleveland Council of Independent Schools.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Founded in 1876, Hathaway Brown began as "afternoon classes for young ladies" at the all-boys private Brooks Military School in downtown Cleveland. Its original name was the Brooks School for Ladies. In 1886, the school was purchased by Anne Hathaway Brown. During her tenure, Brown changed the school's name to “Miss Anne H. Hathaway Brown's School for Girls” and introduced the school motto: non scholae sed vita discimus (“we learn not for school but for life”). At that point, only women were accepted.[citation needed]

The building at 1945 East 97th Street was completed in 1905 by the Cleveland architectural firm of Hubbell & Benes. It was later demolished.[4] The school moved to its current location at 19600 North Park Boulevard in Shaker Heights. Mary Elizabeth Raymond (1912–38) and Ann Cutter Coburn (1938–68) were notable headmistresses.[citation needed]

The head of the school is Mary Frances Bisselle.[citation needed]
