CHECK OUT THE PILOT AT RISING STARR MIDDLE SCHOOL

Fayette County Public Schools Community for Creativity is school reimagined.

We're changing the way students engage in the classroom. We value each individual's ability to create original ideas, concepts, and content to better themselves and the world around them.

Classroom conversations change from "What are we learning about" to "What are we creating today?"

Adopting Fayette's Portrait of a Graduate as our north star, the Community for Creativity positions students as productive citizens by connecting to their individual passions and purpose. We do this through a shared mindset that is student driven, exploration centered, flexible, and collaborative. Each school's model is individualized by teachers and leaders to meet their unique community and classroom needs.
