I can't say enough good things about it. We really love it here.
This school looks great on paper but has no curriculum and the absurdly high turnover rate for admin and teachers destroys any chance at success, not that there was a plan in place for success. It is all philosophical talk, but racism and lies behind closed doors. Stay away.
I feel so blessed to have my 4 year old attend CMI. The teachers and staff care so much about the students. I enjoy the inclusion model that they follow. It helps the students learn to be accepting of everyone. I plan to keep my son in the program as long as possible. I am praying that my other children get into the school through the lottery. Amazing school. They also have a a middle school program now.
We literally won the lottery by getting into CMI. My daughter loves going to school each day. We are happy with the school program, the IPC curriculum, the language programing (she is learning Mandarin and Spanish), there is so much art and music as well. I'm amazed by how the language and art are tied into each of the units that she is discovering as well as all the field trips and events with the school. I could not be happier.
Creative minds is a fabulous school. My daughter knows her numbers in mandarin and Spanish. Shes in ps3 her teacher is amazing I have enrolled my son for next year and I am so excited to further my childs education here at creative minds. I recommend this school to all.
Creative Minds is everything we were looking for in a school. Their whole child approach to learning has been a great transition from my child's earlier montessori education. They also offer Foreign language (spanish 3x & mandarine 2x a week), music (3x a week), and most importantly the IPC curriculum which is only accessible via top private schools in the area (Sidwell, The British School). The school prides itself with a small student to teacher ratio (8-1). Class size maxes out at 15. CMI will only have 2 classes per grade so we are a small school. Eventually we will have grades into middle school! We are very excited to be apart of this community. We are lucky. Any one who is accepted via the lottery is lucky too!
My 3 year old son's favorite thing to do is..... go to school! His increasing vocabulary is surprising us daily. Also has a great aftercare program.
Creative Minds International PCS's focus on arts, foreign language and, most importantly, developing the whole child into an engaged and caring learner is the perfect fit for my son and our family. Teachers work very hard to address the individual needs of each student and my son loved school and his teachers because of that. I feel very lucky to have gotten a spot for my son at this school.
My son attends this school and we have been nothing but pleased with the experience thus far. We have been impressed with the project-based curriculum and how the teachers engage the students at the beginning of each new unit. They incorporate so many educational elements and interesting approaches into each unit in a way that really engages the students in the subject matter. The small size of the school and the student-to-teacher ratio is another positive. My son got plenty of attention from his primary teachers and the rest of the teachers and faculty knew him well too.
My son went to this school for Kindergarten the first year they were open (2012/2013) and we absolutely loved it! We drove and hour and a half round trip just for him to attend. The student to teacher ratio is amazing! The entire staff (including teachers that never had my son in there class) knew every kids name within 2 weeks of the beginning of the year. I can not say enough good things about Creative Minds. I bawled my eyes out when my husband got orders because we had to leave our amazing Creative Minds family.
