I honestly feel that my son’s experience at school has made him feel loved and valued every day, and that he’s deeply and actively engaged in learning on a level I didn’t expect.

Creative Minds International Public Charter School (CMI) was founded in 2012. We offer public school students in preschool through 8th grade a free international, arts-based, and inclusive educational opportunity through a student-centered pedagogical approach.

Creative Minds is the only DC public school that offers a rich and progressive international curriculum from preschool through middle school, which incorporates the latest research on how children learn. Our commitment to international mindedness manifests in our rigorous academics and is lived out through our diverse student body. CMI’s commitment to inclusion is our unique way of showing our students how to respect and embrace differences of every kind. All are welcome at CMI to learn and grow!
