Welcome to Duval County Public Schools! When you change residences, whether you move across county lines or across the country, there is so much to learn about your new town. The one that tops most parents’ lists is to find a great school for their children. If you are a parent who is new to the area, you came to the right place! Not only is our county one of the largest per square inch in the country, our district is one of the largest public school districts in the nation. And, we are striving to become the best.
Within our district, there are more than 160 schools (106 elementary, 28 middle and 17 high schools). In addition, there are five alternative schools, two academies of technology and three exceptional education schools. To effectively manage all of the schools within our district, the district is divided into four clusters with a cluster chief heading up each one. Clusters 1 and 2 divide the K – 8 schools. Cluster 3 includes all the high schools, and Cluster 4 includes the Superintendent’s Standard Bearer and Accelerated schools. We serve approximately 130,000 students who represent a diverse population.
On any given day, there are many wonderful things happening in schools throughout Duval County. In an effort to provide a glimpse into the many exciting educational activities that enhance student and parent involvement, each of Duval County schools has a presence on our web site. If you have any questions, let us know.
It’s an exciting time for Duval County Public Schools, and we invite you to join us on our journey.
