The Garden

The Garden at Pan American Academy Charter School serves as an intersection for a healthy lifestyle combining good eating habits and mindfulness. It provides an intentional and reflective space for students and the community to come together.  The garden promotes community engagement and a commitment to healthy living.

The Practice of Mindfulness

Since 2018, Pan American Academy Charter School has implemented the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness refers to the process of focusing your attention in the present. The idea of a mindful mindset is to help students deal with stressful or overwhelming experiences.
