Kindergarten's first expedition titled Farm to Table was all about how community members work together to get food on our table and where food comes from.

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 guide 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 rigorous model that challenges students to think critically and take active roles in their classrooms and communities. EL students gain skills critical to college readiness and lifelong success - literacy, numeracy, problem-solving,collaboration, persistance toward excellence, and active citizenship - as well as mastery of subject area knowledge.
  • 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 toward choices that will lead to personal success.
