The Island School is a multiage charter school for grades K-5 in Boca Grande, Florida. It was founded and approved by the Lee County School Board in 2000. Its purpose is to educate the children whose parents live or work in the community of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island, a small barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Island School strives to help each child develop their individual potentials and unique strengths. We provide a multiage, developmentally appropriate program with the belief that this is the best setting to encourage an inclusive family style learning context.
The Island School maintains high academic and social standards within a safe, responsive, and caring environment. It is within these contexts that we expect all students to take expanding responsibilities for their own learning, behaviors, and choices.
