City Invincible Charter School
Imagine planning to open and operate a farmer's market. You have to identify what fruits and vegetables you would like to sell, figure out how you will grow and harvest the plants and then plan to sell them to make a profit. An exercise like this will not only teach you about operating a business, but also help you to develop an understanding of how science, math and technology apply to real life experiences.
This is exactly what students at City Invincible Charter School, a new public charter school opening in Camden that will eventually serve 600 students from kindergarten to eighth grade, will be doing. The school will be rooted in project-based learning, allowing teachers to collaborate across grade levels and subject matters to create relevant, comprehensive learning opportunities for students. Through meaningful activities that examine real-world, complex issues, students will build basic academic and 21st century skills.
City Invincible Charter School also seeks to develop Camden youth into productive members of their local and global society. By building on the history, experiences and resources of their own neighborhoods and city, City Invincible students will gain the knowledge, skills and values required of learners and citizens in today's world.
