We look forward to celebrating the first day of school at Babcock Neighborhood School for the 2018-2019 school year! The brand new facility will be welcoming students in grades K-7. This year the school day begins at 8:00 am through 2:30 pm.
About Babcock Neighborhood School
Located in the heart of America’s first solar-powered town, BNS offers a “project-based” environmentally focused “greenSTEAM” education program that integrates science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics within a thoughtfully provided holistic learning environment. STEAM requires intentional connections among and between standards, assessments, and lesson design while integrating related standards across disciplines – allowing students to demonstrate mastery of subjects.
By focusing on local landscape, history, culture, and context, learning at BNS takes on specificity and moves from the abstract to the concrete, engaging students with an environment that encourages interactions with, and exploration of, the world around them.
The sustainability and conservation principles of Babcock Ranch provide opportunities for hands-on, project-based learning about nature, health and renewable energy with a STEAM focus.
