Learning Gate Community School is located in Lutz, FL and is one of 297 schools in Hillsborough School District. It is a charter school that serves 571 students in grades K-8.
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

We like it! We didn't like the public school at all and was happy to find this school. They are based on nature going green and taking care of the earth!! If your child doesn't come home dirty, then I would be worried!
