IT'S BEEN nearly 10 years since Andrea Hamilton set out to write a social history of Baltimore's Bryn Mawr School. It's been six years since she sold publication rights to the prestigious Johns Hopkins University Press - and two years since Bryn Mawr, without explanation, tried to kill the book. That makes Wednesday's official publication of Hamilton's A Vision for Girls: Gender, Education and the Bryn Mawr School well worth noting. As promised when Bryn Mawr yielded to news reports in The Sun and The Chronicle of Higher Education, and to a petition signed by more than 140 international scholars, there's a disclaimer at the beginning of the book: Bryn Mawr wants nothing to do with the opinions expressed therein.

A second Gwynn Lake College Preparatory School teacher is facing sex-related charges after a female student complained he inappropriately touched her. The allegation comes less than a week after the school's athletic director was charged with raping the same girl. Tracy Lopez, 34, of the 2800 block of Diamond Ridge Road in Woodlawn, was charged in a warrant this week with a fourth-degree sex offense and child abuse. Police are searching for Lopez, who they say may have left the area. Police said Lopez is accused of confronting the 15-year-old student and touching her "in an inappropriate area of her body," in a hallway at the small Christian preparatory school in Woodlawn.

The hand-painted ornithological prints that were hung around the bow-shaped Bird Room sparked Susan Randt's interest. But it was the cast-iron cemetery crosses that she and her husband, Richard, found on Mount de Sales Academy's 14-acre campus that spurred the Randts to take on the job of compiling the history of the all-girls school. The couple, who live in Ellicott City, spent three years doing research. They visited the academy's archives, local libraries and basements, and they contacted alumni, their families, and members of the staff and faculty.

At an inauguration ceremony that included music, dignitaries, and a congratulatory welcome from President Bush, Coppin State College's new president urged students yesterday to look beyond the problems that could hold the school back and "go to work." "There's a perception that Coppin can't perform," Stanley F. Battle said during a celebration marking his tenure as president of the West Baltimore college. "The only way to achieve is to show people." Speaking to about a thousand people at the historically black college's James Weldon Johnson Auditorium, Battle addressed some of the issues facing the school.

East Baltimore's tiny St. Frances Academy has won Catholic League basketball titles without a gym to practice in. Now, it will get one. Yesterday, officials broke ground for a recreation center that the school at 501 E. Chase St. has waited more than six decades to see built. It should be completed by January. In the heart of one of Baltimore's toughest neighborhoods, hundreds attended the school's flag-raising ceremony yesterday for a 31,500-square-foot brick center that will have a computer laboratory, meeting rooms, a kitchen and the school's first gymnasium.

It sounds like a principal's nightmare: a group of students making extensive changes to every aspect of a school's Web site. But faculty and staff at McDonogh School, an independent college preparatory school in Owings Mills, are thrilled. This was not a group of devious juvenile hackers, but the school's new Web gurus: students who wrote more than 150,000 lines of code to create a sophisticated new school Web site that launched yesterday, just in time for school. "We looked at the option of going outside" for a Web designer, said Headmaster Bo Dixon.

COLORA - Tucked away in the rolling farmland of Cecil County sits a little-known secondary school that holds a unique title in American education: the oldest boarding school in the United States. Founded in 1744 by an Irish Presbyterian minister, West Nottingham Academy boasts a proud roster of alumni, including three former governors, two signers of the Declaration of Independence - Benjamin Rush and Richard Stockton - and well-known modern artist Eric Fischl. "The timeline alone for the school is just incredible," says Peter Fender of Baltimore, a 1964 graduate and member of West Nottingham's board of trustees.
