North Florida School of Special Education is the best school that you will find in Jacksonville for children with disabilities!!! Everyone at the school is amazing. My daughter has attended the school for almost 10 years and I highly recommend it to everyone! My daughter has grown so much over the last 10 years and I give them a lot of credit for that, helping her to become more independent, increasing her social and academic skills!!

Agree wholeheartedly with the parent review of 3/17/10 regarding the administration and teachers: " The best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, The biggest and only problem of this school is how rude and condescending the administration is. They can make it a miserable experience for everyone and seem to make things up as they go."

The best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, The biggest and only problem of this school is how rude and condescending the administration is. They can make it a miserable experiance for everyone and seem to make things up as they go .If only the board was more involved, they would realize the school is rapidly falling apart. This school also has the worst speech therapies I have ever seen. Most parents I have talked to have not recieved their services. I hate to even be saying this because of the potential for success of this school. But some one needs to address the real issues of North Florida School. I would not recommend this school with the direction they are taking.

My son has always loved going to school! Once he started High School he didn't like it anymore and wanted to quit. We were so fortunate to find North Florida School of Special Education. Once he started going to NFSSE, he just excelled in everything! This school is for children with disabilities from K thru Transition 2 grades (22yrs of age), good class sizes, wonderful teachers and therapist! It was a fun loving school for him again and he LOVED being there every day. He learned more there in the six years he went there than he did 17 years of public schools. I would strongly recommend this school if your child has a disability!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
