Gardens School of Technology Arts, a tuition-free K-8 public charter school in Palm Beach Gardens.
When K-8 students walk onto the campus of Gardens School of Technology Arts, they enter a world of unique opportunities, creative processes, and out-of-the-box learning. Gardens SOTA operates with a mission to provide unique tools in a cooperative learning setting that fosters creativity and problem solving throughout the school day.
In addition to a solid core academic program, students at all grade levels receive instruction and engage in activities including Digital Art, Animation, Audio/Visual Creation, Coding/Programming, 3D Design, Website Design, Engineering, and more. Students become familiar and comfortable with technologies that are permeating professional society and are the foundation for many 21st-century careers.
With only two classes per grade level K-8 and a total max enrollment of 364, they provide a small community school environment where every student is well-known by teachers, staff, and administration, parent involvement is valued and encouraged, and relationship building generates a welcoming family environment.
Their annual parent survey consistently reflects a parent satisfaction rate of over 92%, with a significant percentage communicating that expectations for their student’s learning experience and environment have been exceeded. Here are a few comments from their recent survey:
