October 4th, 2013 · Leave a Comment

Homebuyers typically come to the real estate table with a wish list. This often includes great home features, plenty of community amenities, neighborhood safety and, of course, good schools. In the master-planned community of Palencia, all of these items are considered “must-haves” and can easily be checked off the list.

Palencia residents are fortunate to attend three outstanding St. Johns County district schools – Palencia Elementary, Pacetti Bay Middle School and Nease High School. St. Johns County is one of the highest ranked school districts in the state, with top test scores and national averages. It is one of only 10 districts in the state of Florida to receive an A grade for 10 years in a row.

Palencia Elementary, which opened in 2012 and is the newest school in the St. Johns County district, received a five-star ranking through the school grading website greatschools.org. Its reading and math scores on the FCAT are consistently above the state average, students enjoy state-of-art technology resources, including digital textbooks accessed through iPad tablets, and the school facilities were built using green building standards.

Pacetti Bay Middle School has an A rating, consistently high FCAT scores and has been designated as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years program school.

Nease High School has been nationally recognized by The Washingon Post as one of America’s Best High Schools. It offers the IB program, AP courses, communications and engineering specialty academies and a Navy Jr. ROTC program. FCAT scores at Nease have been well above the state and district averages each year.

In addition to outstanding schools, homeowners in Palencia enjoy world-class amenities, including the golf course, the Palencia Golf Clubhouse and 40-acre Village Center with dining, shopping and banquet facilities, lighted Hydro Grid clay tennis courts, sports fields and eight miles of multi-use paths and walks connecting residents to natural areas and marshes of the scenic Tolomato River. The community is a short drive from the beaches, shopping, historic St. Augustine and downtown Jacksonville.
