3 Good Communities For Families in Florida (A-Rated Schools)

By April 20, 2022February 13th, 2024No Comments

Are you searching for communities in Florida with top-rated schools? While many of the public school systems in Florida are highly rated, few of them hold a candle to the education system in Northeast Florida. And that’s no surprise with St. Johns County in the running!

But today, we’d like to take some time to shine a spotlight on three communities in particular. If you’re familiar with the area, you are likely familiar with these neighborhoods. Here are the top three communities with A-rated schools in Florida. 

Beacon Lake, Florida

Located on 43 acres of paddle-friendly water, Beacon Lake is home to award-winning homes, nearly unlimited waterfront listings and activities, and a highly rated school system. In fact, St. Johns County is ranked as the best county to live in Florida, the best county for families in Florida, and the #1 county with the best public schools in Florida.

So, there’s no wonder that so many new homeowners and young families choose Beacon Lake as their forever home. As a B.L. resident, you can visit the splash park, relax on the white sandy beaches, play in the playgrounds, work out in the community gym, paddle across the lake, and so much more! 

Durbin Crossing, Florida

Durbin Crossing is another gorgeous community in St. Johns County. As a result, residents of this beautiful neighborhood have direct access to the A+ school systems located in St. Johns County. But don’t think for a minute that the benefits and amenities stop there! 

Durbin Crossing is a community committed to nature. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of picturesque panoramas, natural preserves, and lake views, this is an area ideal for anyone who loves all things outdoors. There are also events, activities, social gatherings, and more at the neighborhood’s amenity centers, available to all residents of this close-knit community.

Julington Lakes, Florida

Julington Lakes is yet another beautiful community in St. Johns County. So, as you might’ve guessed, it’s another area to live where you can access the best-rated schools in the entire Sunshine State. But like Durbin Crossing and Beacon Lake, Julington Lakes also has much more family-friendly fun to offer than out-of-this-world education systems.

As a resident of Julington Lakes, you can access state-of-the-art community amenities, including tennis courts, community pools, and basketball courts. You can also spend the day hanging out at Veterans Park, which contains playgrounds, trails, a skatepark, and a dog park.
