Can you believe another school year is about to start? As we prepare our children to head back to the classroom, parents in St. Johns County should remember how fortunate we are to live in one of best school districts in the state – if not the country! With approximately 40% of all full-time teachers holding advanced degrees, it’s no wonder the St. Johns County school district is in the top 14% of the nation for “What Parents Want” in public schools. This is also confirmed by six seniors placing in the top 1% and 19 students placing in the top 5% nationally on PSAT.

St. Johns County students also continue to rank among the top in the state on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, known as the FCAT. The test is given to students in grades 3 through 11. Of the 16 scores given to the districts, St. Johns County students ranked first in eight areas! The 2009 results show St. Johns County students were first in reading and math among all 67 school districts for grades 3, 4 and 5. Grades 9 and 10 were also first in reading and second and fifth in math, respectively.

Our Superintendent Joseph Joyner shared that 86% of our students are at or above grade level in reading and 90% are at or above grade level in math. That ranks us number one in the state – and that’s pretty impressive!

Students in grades 5, 8 and 11 are also tested in science. Our students ranked third, second and third respectively in the state.

On the SAT, students average a 1566, which is above the state average of 1474 and the national average of 1511. On the ACT, they average a 22.0. The state average is 19.8 and the national is 21.1. So, it’s not surprising that 75.6% of our graduates are ready for college in all three areas tested compared to a state average of 62.9%.

The exceptional school district is one of the most appealing things about new homes in St. Johns County. So, needless to say, The Neighborhoods of World Golf Village is proud to be a part of the St. Johns County School District! We look forward to sending our children to the following schools this year:

Elementary Schools: Mill Creek Elementary for Slammer & Squire neighborhoods
Wards Creek Elementary for King & Bear neighborhoods
Middle School: Pacetti Bay Middle School
High School: Allen D. Nease High School
