The NorthLake Park Community School in Lake Nona represents an innovative public-private partnership. Opened in 1999, the City of Orlando, Orange County Public Schools, YMCA, Lake Nona and ORMC came together to build a neighborhood center combining a new public elementary school, city park and family wellness/recreational facility. NLP has continued to have a tradition of excellence and innovation and is currently working to establish a Cambridge Academy within the school to allow students to continue to thrive and achieve at high levels.
