BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore school board has approved two new charter schools, including an arts integration elementary school that will open next year.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the schools were among four that were considered by the district in the
last month. The board rejected proposals for a military academy and an all-girls elementary school.
The Creative City Public Charter School was approved to begin operating in 2013. It will serve students in kindergarten through second-grade and will later expand to the fifth-grade. The school will tie its curriculum to students’ experiences as residents of the city and will emphasize the arts.
The Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys will open in 2014 and will serve students in fourth-grade through 12th-grade. It will focus on liberal arts.
