Nocatee is ranked as the 3rd fastest growing community in the country! Thousands of families are making this master-planned community their home. With this influx of families come hundreds of kids entering the St. Johns County school system. To accommodate this growth, a new K-8 school will open its doors for the 2018-2019 school year. The school is located next to Nocatee’s Twenty Mile neighborhood.
The K-8 school will be the zoned school for following Nocatee’s neighborhoods: Coastal Oaks, Kelly Pointe, Nocatee Town Center, The Palms Townhomes, Tidewater, Twenty Mile, Willowcove and the under development Crosswater.
Valley Ridge Academy will remain the elementary and middle school for children living in Austin Park and Greenleaf. Nease is the zoned high school for all of Nocatee students. “The new school will open next year as a K-6 school, then expand to K-7 the following year and be fully K-8 in year three" (News4Jax).
The name for the school has yet to be determined, but will likely be released in the Spring of 2018.
