Creative Minds International Public Charter School (CMI) was founded with the goal of offering students a rigorous education plan that provides them with the skills required for successful participation in a global society. To accomplish his mission, the leaders at CMI have designed a highly-engaging program, based on an international, project- and arts-based curriculum that includes foreign language instruction as well as standards-based literacy and mathematics. CMI is the only public school in Washington, DC to use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).
In August 2015, CMI transitioned into a new building that has provided the space to serve a greater number of students, to build new relationships, to join together as a supportive and collaborative CMI community, and to expand their program to serve Middle School students. Please join the First Fridays team at Creative Minds International PCS on November 4th, 2016 at their new campus on North Capitol Street.
