I’ve looked at the Duval County Public Schools website, and got some useful information on the areas that have "A" schools. It looks like it’s harder to find "A" high schools than it is to find "A" middle and elementary schools. I will need to live in an area with great public schools, and as low crime as possible (I know Jax is known for high crime). And I’m looking for a small starter home for around $200K. Is that even possible??
As far as traffic, cost of living, housing costs, safety, and public schools, what is your opinion on these areas in or near Jacksonville, FL…
Duval County: Kernan area, Atlantic Blvd area, Mandarin area, Baymeadows, Deerwood, San Marco
St. Johns County: Julington/Switzerland, Fruit Cove, Palm Valley, Ponte Vedra, Ponte Vedra Beach
Clay County: Orange Park (Clay Cty)
Nassau County: Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach
Are there any other areas that are close to Jacksonville where you would recommend living? Thanks for helping me out!!
