About the City Neighbors Foundation

City Neighbors Charter School began as a grassroots movement in the summer of 2003 comprised of a group of city neighbors – teachers, parents, business people, and educators – who had the audacity to dream big for their children.   It took two years for our charter to be accepted by Baltimore City. Our doors opened in September of 2005.  Our deep desire to serve more students demanded the City Neighbors journey did not end with one school.  After four years of providing dynamic, successful, innovative education, City Neighbors Charter School became the first Charter School in Maryland to replicate by founding two more schools: City Neighbors Hamilton and City Neighbors High School.   In August of 2009, City Neighbors Hamilton opened with grades K-3, and will expand yearly until we achieve K-8 capacity.  In the fall of 2010, City Neighbors High School opened its doors with 9th grade, and will also expand yearly until we are a full 9th through 12th grade High School.
