Creative City always finds hands-on ways to engage and inspire students. One of the most exciting examples is the outdoor garden in our curriculum. From tomatoes to potatoes, our students learn about healthy eating, sustainability and environmental science. This approach fosters a love of learning and cultivates a sense of community—and we're all about the community at Creative City!
As a tuition-free public charter school in the heart of Baltimore, we always look for ways to engage our students in learning. Our outdoor garden is just one example of the immersive experiences we offer to break out of the mold and go beyond the usual textbook learning. Encouraging students to work with their hands in nature helps teach teamwork, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Not every seed grows into a plant, and students learn the importance of patience and perseverance in a fun and challenging way.
Our garden classrooms motivate students to experience and observe plant growth and our nurturing process. Through garden maintenance, students get to see the power of daily attention and caring for plants that can turn into food that sustains them. Our K-5th graders also develop a sense of responsibility towards the environment and become environmentally conscious stewards.
When it comes to building a foundation for a lifelong love of learning, Creative City does whatever it takes. Our outdoor garden classrooms are just one of the ways we motivate students to be actively engaged in learning and understand how the world around them impacts their lives. Our curriculum is designed to engage students in "learning by doing" experiences that stimulate all their senses.
