I'm writing as a parent/teacher founder to tell everyone about Creative City Public Charter School. We will be opening grades K-2 next fall, but enrolling now.
Our elementary school, where teachers, students and parents will share governance and cooperate on curriculum and community decisions, will build on the inquisitive nature of children to drive the project-based arts-integrated curriculum, developing self-directed critical thinkers.
For enrollment and more information:
I would be happy to answer anyone's questions. If you are interested in progressive education and arts integration, what we are doing might interest you!
Love to see new schools opening up in Baltimore. I love that our district is giving progressive choices to Baltimore City students! Thanks to all the hard-working parents, teachers and community organizers for taking the initiative and starting new charters!
Where will this new school be located?
We are in final negotiations with the City for a property at 2810 Shirley Ave (Baltimore-21215). This site is just north of the MD zoo and is next to a large green space and Gwynns Run stream. The school was started by a group of parents interested in progressive and arts based education, who were frustrated by the lack of choices for our children.
Sounds great! I'm sure your familiar with TWIGS and BSA. My DC is enrolled in TWIGS, which starts for some subjects at grade 2. Also, there is Baltimore Design school for 6-12. That's a top pick for us for middle next year. I love the choices in the city but, boy, do I long for traditional neighborhood schools in those transition years!
Good luck finding a location.
