St. Johns County School District has announced that the newest K-8 school will be located south of the Crosswater neighborhoods. The new school, K-8 School “MM”, will be located on approximately 25 acres at the intersection of Crosswater Parkway and Pine Island Road.
K-8 School “MM” will accommodate approximately 1500 students. It has been designed to provide both traditional and non-traditional settings with classroom areas that can accommodate groupings by grade or as multi-age students using teaching teams. Movable walls between classroom pairs facilitate the team teaching approach.
This new school is the fourth school site donated by Nocatee’s developer to the St. Johns County School District. Palm Valley Academy opened for the 2018-2019 school year, Valley Ridge Academy opened its doors in 2014 and Ponte Vedra High School opened in 2008- all on land donated to the District by the developer.
“Education is an important cornerstone of the Nocatee lifestyle,” said Greg Barbour, Chief Operating Officer of The PARC Group. “This new school reinforces that the Nocatee lifestyle incorporates all of its residents’ needs, from education to health, wellness, recreation, employment, and more.”
The PARC Group is expediting their construction of the Crosswater Parkway extension to provide access to the school site for Nocatee residents. The St. Johns County School District anticipates opening for the 2021/2022 school year.
Zoning of students will be determined by the School District at a later date. To learn more about the neighborhoods surrounding the new school, click HERE.
