Babcock Neighborhood School
The Babcock Neighborhood School
Babcock Neighborhood School offers students in southeast Charlotte County a place-based, student-centered education built on active learning, collaboration and community. The eco-focused Babcock Ranch development lays the ideal foundation for a place-based, green-STEAM educational model.
Anticipated Programs at the Babcock Neighborhood School
Babcock Neighborhood School will prepare K-8 students to become independent, creative and compassionate lifelong learners, leaders and problem solvers through an environmentally focused green STEAM educational program that integrates science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics within a thoughtfully prepared holistic learning environment. Multi-age classroom groupings will support each child’s natural development, as BNS seeks to nurture the whole child through an emphasis on independence, freedom and respect for each child’s natural learning process.
While Babcock Neighborhood School’s anticipated student population will likely mirror the student population of Charlotte County Public Schools, BNS fills a need that will be created by the future development of Babcock Ranch. At completion, the town of Babcock Ranch is projected have over 19,000 residences, which will house over 50,000 people. Babcock Neighborhood School provides a community-based educational option for these families.
