Babcock High School welcomed its first students at the beginning of the school year on Monday morning.
It was the grand opening for the new high school, located at 43301 Cypress Parkway in Charlotte County, that will focus on a holistic learning environment. Babcock schools are opening two days earlier than other school districts like Lee and Collier counties.
Until now, there was only Babcock Neighborhood School, a K-8 school. The new high school is designed for 9th grade to 12th grade, but 12th grade won’t be added until the next school year starting in 2023. District officials say both Babcock Neighborhood School and Babcock High School will focus on the greenSTEAM education program, which integrates science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
