Learning Gate Community School is a tuition free, A rated, public charter school of choice in Lutz, Florida. Our mission is to promote academic excellence, community service and environmental responsibility through family and community partnerships.

Learning Gate Community School serves kindergarten through 8th grade. Learning Gate received its charter from the county in the year 2000. Learning Gate students are located on two sites: K-6th grades reside at the Hanna Road Campus in Lutz, and 7th-8th grade students are located at our Lutz Lake Fern Campus also in Lutz.

As part of the Hillsborough County school district, Learning Gate must meet the statewide accountability standards. Learning Gate’s goal is to provide the most productive and inspiring learning experiences and opportunities for its student population with the added bonus of significant academic growth.

Our Motto “Nature is our Best Teacher” personifies the natural spirit of the school. The program is built around the Environment as an Integrating Context model for learning. This model focuses not only on learning about the environment but is about using a school’s surroundings and community as a framework within which students can construct their own learning. Guided by teachers and administrators using proven educational practices, they employ the environment as their comprehensive focus for learning in all areas: thinking and problem-solving skills, basic life skills, and understanding of the personal relationship to one’s community and natural surroundings.
