Looking for grade A schools with majority caucasian, not city urban areas. Sorry no disrespect to any one.

At least you are honest. Jupiter, FL. has what you asked for.

Default Good schools in St. Johns County...

I'm new to the Jacksonville area (St. Johns, to be exact), and you can't go wrong with the schools in the St. Johns School District. I'm subbing in the elementary schools there, and if predominantly caucasian is what you're looking for, you'll definitely find it there. Plus, it's a great district, probably most, if not all, are "A" schools in the St. Johns/Ponte Vedra/Julington Creek area (apparently not all in St. Augustine are, though). At the two schools I've been at, some of the elementary students are in a "laptop" class, where the whole class is to be working on their own notebook computer throughout the day...I never experienced that teaching in San Diego. I'm not in Duval County, but there are a few "A" schools there, too, I think in Southside/Mandarin areas. Good luck with your search.

Naples Florida would also be a good choice.

Naples is a good choice. But it is pretty old for people with kids. Jupiter has a younger mix.

If you like the gulf coast, try Naples. If you like the east coast, try Jupiter.

Don't apologize for wanting that, many of us want that.

That's exactly why we moved where did. We are buying a house in Port Orange (we close next Thursday). It's a great city, grade "A" schools, 9 miles from the beautiful ocean, the city is 97 percent white, family oriented, close to Daytona to do things, close to Orlando for day trips... it's great!!!

My son was in an "A" school district K-12 majority caucausian in an middle-upper middle class neighborhood. Kids with lots of disposable cash, extra time on their hands and access to "better" drugs. And while he was in this "A" school, he never was taught how to write a paper, or an outline or required to read many books.

Good Luck!

Once you narrow your search to a specific area, Go to "GreatSchools.net" Make sure to look at individual test scores and parent reviews. Not all "A" rated schools are the same! The grading of schools is based on improvement not actual performance!
