Plant Street Campus

Pre-K – 6th Grade

Opened in 1958, Plant Street is our historic Winter Garden elementary school for grades Pre-K – 6th. Centrally located between Winter Garden, Ocoee and Windermere at 125 E Plant St, Winter Garden, FL 34787, our Plant Street campus offers a diverse lower school academic program, athletic and fine arts opportunities, chapel services, and more.

Our Plant Street campus is easily accessible from the 429 and Route 50, conveniently located on the corner of Plant St. and Dillard. You’ll also find we’re situated at the entrance of Historic Downtown Winter Garden, which houses many charming mom-and-pop businesses that are very community-oriented.

The Highlights

Since our Plant St. Campus opened its doors, we have been intentional to make education embraceable by both student and teacher, offering fresh and vibrant learning opportunities. Students have the opportunity to learn and grow here from as early as Pre-K and can smoothly ease into middle and high school after spending a transition year (6th grade) at this location.

  • The Lion Pride Sports Development Program aims to teach and train young students the fundamentals of athletics and their faith.
  • We offer a broad After-School Program meant to cater to the interests and passions of our students such as choir, chess, dance, drama, and more.
  • We have designed a library that stresses the importance of reading. We have a newly created space that provides an environment that encourages students to explore books and other media materials that expand their interests and learning horizons.
  • Challenging Curriculum, Honors Program, Advanced Math Courses, and Multi-Level Reading Program
  • Multi-Aged Chapels, Engaging Worship and Biblical Teaching
