We are Imagine!  As part of the Imagine family, Imagine School at Lakewood Ranch embraces Imagine’s shared values ~ Justice, Integrity and Fun.  Our shared values are not simply words but a way of life on our campus.

is individualizing each student's academic experience.  Our curriculum is differentiated to ensure each student's needs are met so every child has the opportunity to reach his greatest potential. 

INTEGRITY speaks to wholeness, balancing academic and character endeavors.  We strive to address the needs of the whole child, intellectually and socially and emotionally.  In fact, Imagine schools were only 4 school districts nationally that won the “2013 National District of Character” award from the Character Education Partnership (CEP).  “What these schools are accomplishing is absolutely remarkable," commented CEP Schools of Character Director Dr. Russ Sojourner.  "At a time in which school safety and positive culture is of the utmost importance to our students, parents, and communities, it's inspiring to identify schools that are focusing on what's most important – developing students who are both intellectually and ethically strong." 

FUN is about empower all stakeholders in the decision making process. Engaging students in decision making and holding them accountable to the results is paramount to developing tomorrow’s leaders.
