At Creative City Charter School, our mission is to empower our students to reach full potential. We strive to provide our young learners with a rich learning environment that realizes unique abilities and bolsters dreams. Our teachers provide support at each and every step while challenging our students to stretch and grow academically.
We are a tuition-free public charter school that uses play-based education for kindergarten and place-based learning for our first through fifth graders. What is place-based learning? Unlike traditional teaching that relies on teachers explaining information to students, place-based learning is experiential; it draws from students' real-life experiences as an authentic foundation for learning. Our approach helps young students tangibly solve problems, discover new ideas and develop strong communication skills in age-appropriate ways. We take this approach one step farther by infusing art and creativity!
We Teach Outside the Box
At Creative City, we understand the value of balancing academics with art. This equilibrium develops critical thinking and communication skills students might never realize in a classroom setting. We work hard to ensure our K-5 classrooms keep students inspired and engaged because we believe art gives our students the freedom to experiment and explore new ideas while harnessing imagination. Academics are regularly paired with the arts, including visual arts, dance, music and theatre, to help students creatively connect with the world and retain the new information they have learned.
Our prioritization of play-based learning creates an empowering environment for our students to ask questions, pursue new ideas, gain self-confidence and learn to work collaboratively. Our teachers are passionate and our staff is nurturing. If you want to learn more about our innovative education approach, please contact us today.
