Learning Gate Community School is an environmental charter school that was established in 1983 as “a preschool where kids get dirty.” In 2000, Learning Gate applied for a charter and opened its doors as the first environmentally-focused charter school in the State of Florida. The current campus is approximately 27 acres of natural woodland trails, a beautiful student run organic garden, a historical log cabin and award winning green classrooms. The school has now expanded to house 7th and 8th grade students are now engaged in learning at our second location in Historic Downtown Lutz.
