The BICO Club hosted the 2nd Annual SBCS “Camp-In” on January 17th & 18th.

Our vision: SBCS is a vibrant, rigorous school of active learners at the heart of a thriving Southwest Baltimore community.

Our mission: To empower each student to achieve authentic academic success by harnessing the kindness, cooperation, and trust of faculty, family, and community.

Tenets: The following tenets have guided our development of curricula and school culture:

  • Differentiated Instruction – a philosophy of teaching that aims to meet each child where he or she is and move him or her forward
  • Expeditionary Learning - a curriculum that allows children to use all their senses to construct and retain knowledge through integrated units that allow for in-depth study of a topic from multiple perspectives
  • Arts Integration – a way to foster students’ artistic skills and self expression through a multitude of art forms while deepening their understanding of academic content\
  • Choice Theory - an approach to behavior management that teaches children to be intrinsically rather than extrinsically motivated, and guides them in making choices that will lead to personal success

Southwest Baltimore Charter School: where academics, family, and community come together.
