Kathy, congratulations on having three beautiful girls and wanting the best school for them. You are in luck in that the St. Johns County School District was, once again, voted the top school district in the State. I would definitely take a look at the St. Johns County School District website by going to http://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us and click on the tab at the top named "Schools" - there you will find the list by type, Elementary, Middle, etc.. You will then get a listing of each of the schools in that type and you will have the choice to visit their individual websites. See what is going on in each school, how active the PTO is, etc. Although all of the schools in St. Johns County rank very high, a school is much more than its ranking -- it is a community and the individual school websites will give you a little insight into the community that is at each school. Some schools, such as Murray Middle School, have the school for the arts -- if any of your daughters is a budding dancer or artist, and when you are looking at High Schools -- which is down the road - the different high schools have individual acadamies such as business or health -- or academic such as IB or AICE, so the students in St. Johns County can follow their interests. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them, or, if I can't, direct you to someone who can. Just let me know how I can help!

Hi Kathy,

I'm going to give you 2 links to check out. Then you can call me with any further questions. The first one takes you to the county schools website where you can get names and addresses of the schools. http://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/ This next website is a link to the awards and recognition the St. Johns County Schools have achieved. http://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/about/facts#awards

Let me know if I can be of assistance in any other way~

Hi Kathy,

Before I moved to the St. Augustine area with my four daughters, I referred to http://www.greatschools.org. This website helped me to decide where I would want to live in the St. Augustine Community.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

As a mother, I understand your concerns about sending your children to a great school. Fortunately, St. Johns County gives us so many quality options as we earned top school district in the state again this year. My website makes it easy for you to search and research our local school system. Just go to http://www.amygibbs.com. There you will find a link to the school district rankings on my home page. Also, in the left hand column, I have placed a link to the St. Johns County School District website. Take a look at both of these and search the MLS while you're on my site. If I can help you find a home in the school disctrict you're most interested in, I am happy to do so. Have a great Day!
