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.

About Babcock Ranch

Situated on 18,000 acres, adjacent to an extensive wilderness preserve, Babcock Ranch features hiking and biking paths, greenways and lakes, all ready to serve as the ultimate experiential learning classroom for Babcock Neighborhood School (BNS). The Babcock Ranch community, focused on clean renewable energy strategies, including Florida Green Building Coalition certified buildings and 75 MW solar farm, offers a lesson in eco-stewardship for students. As students collaborate with business owners, learn about health and wellness, and gain a first hand understanding of the farm-to-table movement, they will discover that their contributions have value to the entire town of Babcock Ranch.
