City Neighbors Charter Schools

A network of public charter schools, founded by grassroots community members. There are 3 separate schools serving K-12 students. Note that there are 2 separate campuses with different addresses.

Northeast Baltimore is home to three City Neighbors Schools (public charter schools). Our vision of education is based on seeing the children as creative, independent, and filled with possibility. City Neighbors Schools are designed as parent teacher cooperatives. We believe that through project-based learning, arts integration, and inspired by Reggio Emilia, our students achieve success academically, socially, and emotionally.
