St. Johns County Schools Earn an A+
February 16th, 2022
When you have kids – or are planning to one day – what schools your new home is zoned for can have a huge impact on your decisions. Thankfully, Shearwater is zoned for schools in the St. Johns County School District, which is ranked in the top 10 districts in the country, according to greatschools.org. Plus, SJCSD has announced plans to construct its newest K-8 campus on land dedicated by Freehold Communities within Shearwater! Between the great schools, stunning homes and resort-style amenities, it’s easy to decide to purchase your new home at Shearwater.
This brand-new school will be built on 26 acres previously transferred by Freehold Communities to the district. Once complete, the new K-8 campus by SJCSD will be easily accessible from County Road 210 and Country Road 16A. It will also be a short walk, bike or golf cart ride for families living within Shearwater! You can forget the morning rush and instead have more time to sleep, have a healthy breakfast or finish up that last piece of homework.
This elementary school is located at the entrance of Shearwater, with a paved pathway conveniently connecting the two so kids can safely walk or bike to school. Serving Pre-K through fifth grade, the goal at Timberlin Creek Elementary is to set students up for future success and instill a love for learning at a young age.
Serving sixth through eighth grade students, Switzerland Point Middle School strives to empower all students with a passion for learning and empathy for others. Each student’s strengths, talents and creative abilities are nurtured to help them learn more about themselves and build a strong foundation for their future education and career path.
Here, ninth through twelfth graders build on their skills and prepare for higher education. Advanced placement courses and college prep classes help them earn credits and start with the best foot forward after graduation. Options for athletics, volunteering opportunities and extracurriculars – including clubs like ASL club, chess club and book clubs – allow students to explore their interests while building out their resumes.
At Shearwater, students can thrive while attending top-rated schools. To learn more about the homes, amenities or lifestyle at this new home community in St. Augustine, Florida, join our Interest List.
