Welcome to Creative Minds

Creative Minds International Public Charter School is a tuition-free school for children in Washington, D.C.

We are the only public school in the District of Columbia that offers the International Primary Curriculum, a highly engaging, diverse curriculum with project- and arts-based activities that foster creativity, self motivation, social and emotional development, and academic excellence. Our goal is to provide students with the foundational skills required for successful participation in a global society.

Our program’s unique combination of child-centered, international, and developmental approaches to education is based on extensive research into various aspects of schooling that have the greatest positive effects on academic achievement.
