Lee County students drawn to Babcock charter for innovative, hands-on learning
Hands-on learning. One-on-one attention from teachers. The “best” lunches ever. And being able to attend a solar-powered school on a campus that sits smack-dab in the heart of an up-and-coming city.
There’s a lot to love about being a student at the newly-opened Babcock Neighborhood School, and nothing proves that more than the charter school’s booming enrollment in its first year of classes.
Already, the schoolhouse has reached its full capacity, with about 156 students attending the K-6 school. Most of those who attend hail from Lee County, although the campus is located in the south end of Charlotte County.
And that doesn’t account for the 96 kids who are hoping for a spot to open so they can be moved off the registration wait list.
