This school is truly unique within Baltimore City public schools. The curriculum is arts-integrated and project based. So what does that mean? I've seen kids creating dances to represent geometric principals. I've seen kids using math and working together to figure out if Double Stuff Oreos truly have double stuffing inside. I've seen middle school students walk 2 miles carrying 2 gallons of water each as a part of unit on water sources in Africa. The list of unique and inspiring ways that kids are learning goes on and on, but that's not the only reason we love the school. <p> CNCS's motto is "Known, Loved, and Inspired" and over the years it has become increasingly evident that the staff and administration take this mission seriously. The new principal (this is her first year after previously being the school reading specialist and the parent of 4 CNCS students) truly brings this home. She knows each child's name. She knows the names of parents. She greets everyone in the morning and bids us goodbye at the end of the day. Parents are ALWAYS welcome in the building. <p> The school asks parents to contribute 40 hours of service each year, which really isn't hard to do, as parent-teacher conferences and other outings count as part of this. But these 40 hours help to create a very tight-knit community.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree

The CNCS community suffered a terrible tragedy this week with the death of two of our students in a house fire. The leaders of the school immediately responded with an action plan, by bringing in a team grief counselors, offering support to families and handling an unthinkable situation with tremendous grace and sensitivity.

Develops character: Strongly agree

I haven't seen report cards from other schools, but CNCS report cards put a high value on cooperation and respect for others.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

Students are engaged throughout the day. Their homework, particularly in the earlier grades, is about sharing their learning and you hear it ALL the time. Homework is not a primary methodology but they are prepared!

This school takes the time to learn the students as people and learners. It is teaching them to be global citizens. They offer a variety of classes, and learning approaches that every student feels successful as soon as they walk through the door. We love this school!
