We take a different approach to education at Creative City. Just like our name suggests, we like to think outside the box and be more imaginative when teaching and keeping our students engaged. That's why we use two unique teaching methods in our approach: place-based education and cooperative learning.
We don't just sit at desks all day at Creative City. We get up. We go outside. We move around. We learn through adventure and play, and through exploring the world around us. For our K-5 students, school is an adventure! Place-based means we connect children's learning to the local environment and community. Our teachers use our Baltimore surroundings as a classroom, taking students on field trips to nearby Baltimore Museum of Art, Cylburn Arboretum, and other historical sites.
Our students observe and engage with the world in ways that accentuate their classroom learning. It makes everything more real. As a tuition-free public charter school, this approach makes learning more meaningful and relevant to students without the overhead of hefty tuition.
Our teachers are passionate and create lesson plans that promote student cooperation. This approach ensures learners build essential skills while also mastering academic concepts. We also assist students in our free before and aftercare.
Creative City believes every child deserves an education tailored to their unique learning style, personality, and interests. That's why we incorporate place-based education and cooperative learning into our curriculum. These teaching methods create a dynamic learning environment that prepares students for success in and out of the classroom.
