Just ask the marching band how awesome this school is! Pride of St. John's County in all aspects, not just marching band! IB, Advanced Placement, ROTC, athletics, great academics - it's got it all!

I started to attend Nease halfway through my senior year. I came from a very under privileged High School in GA. It was a HUGE upgrade. Some students complained that it was the "poor" school, but it was far from that (especially since they were driving Mercedes and BMW's). I sadly didn't get to play sports there due to coming in to late. But, I did get to enjoy their amazing art program! It was a great school and I loved all the teachers that I had. Academically I think that it was wonderful, especially for a public school. And even though I was there for a short time period, I made life long friends!

Overall not a bad school but definetly has suffered losses when most students with high academic scores left for Ponte Vedre and along with them excellent staff. Left now with a B rating is evident of the slippery slope we are going down. Knowing what I know now I would buy into another school district. Over the last 2 years that my child has attended I have come to the realization that there is little to no recourse with the administration here and all they care about is that your child is "no trouble". They do not show concern AT ALL if he or she fails. You are a "good student" if you have no disciplinary issues. They will notify you THAT day if your child misses a class (a good thing) but will not even send a note home if there are failing grades.

This school is wonderful for those who want to go to IB to challenge themselves and ROTC for the Military! This schools campus is mostly outdoor due to Florida and is one of the many best in Florida

Fantastic school. Both my kids attend Nease, but they didn't know a soul when they came their freshman year. The student body is very accepting of newcomers. The teachers & guidance department are very accessible and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. The IB program is private education taught with college style. Undoubtly, my kids will be very well prepared for their college journey.

I went to Nease my freshman year, and it was amazing. The classes were fun and very educational. The food was actually good. The pods idea for the buildings is cool. And sports teams are the best in the county. Overall i had a great experience and really do think that if you want your child to be happy, do well in school, and get into sports, Nease is great for that.

I adore this school. Challenging classes and motivational teachers. Although I felt a little out of place because a majority of the students are fairly wealthy.

The word 'Awesome' is the one word my son used to describe his academic experience at Nease this past year. He is not an athlete. He is a top notch student. As his mother, 'this school made me happy.'

This school made me miserable. Sports are priority here, so if your child is good at sports they can get away with any injustice. Teachers seem to have a lack of interest in teaching in general.

The teachers at Nease seem to care about the kids overall. I don't find the school to be too challenging for my Junior who could use a bit more homework and study guides to be certain he is ready for college. The dress code and other rules at the school don't seem to be highly enforced which leaves the impression that the kids- teens rule the roost. It's just okay in my opinion.

Very disappointing. Seems great on paper but kids rule the place with a sense of entitlement. Big money in St. John's County means kids with credit cards

We are new to the area and have found Nease to be a pleasure so far. Great kids, wonderful teachers and a super sense on community.

Academically and althletically this school is the tops. What the school falls short on are the kids in between. Unfortunately many of the students in this school that do not accel at these are left to fall through the cracks. Originally run by upscale parents this school is now begining to diversify. Best thing about the school are the sports and academic programs.

The programs at the school are amazing, especially American Sign Language, my son loves it. I also like the amount of extracurricular activities as well. I am a very involved parent so i think this school really encourages parent involvement

Nease High School consistently outperforms many private schools and academies by providing a comprehensive educational environment and athletic program. School pride emanates from the administrations and is evident within the community!

Nease High School is a positive environmaent when it comes to having not many fights or drugs found on campus. On the other hand many teachers at Nease do not care about the average student and where they are going in life and to college but only want to recieve a paycheck every other week. Despite a great Principal Nease might prapare a student academically but because of the sheltered environment they are not prepared for college or the real world.

The school's International Baccalaureate curriculum bests any of the area private schools. Teacher quality is outstanding in these courses and colleges care about the intensive academics.

This school is wonderful. It consistently performs as well or better than private schools in the Jacksonville area. Teachers are great motivators, and parental participation is extremely high, creating a strong sense of support and accountability of faculty and students

This is one of the best public high schools in the state of Florida. Nease students rank among the highest in student scores on SAT's in the state year in and year out. Nease is also the highest ranked public school of their size in Florida when it comes to overall athletics.
