One of the biggest complaints you'll hear from homeowners and prospective residents of Jacksonville's Southside is the lack of High Schools. With so many families raising kids on that side of town it was and is a blossoming problem. However, the area finally is about to unveil its first new High School in many years, Atlantic Coast High School.
With any new school comes a price tag and this one cost about $77 million. For that value, you get innovation and cutting edge fit and form, with expandable classrooms, a TV studio & a new library. Parents and students should rejoice in the new school and its terrific location for those that will attend.
School starts in just a few short weeks and while students never like to see summer break end, when you're attending a newly built school, the melancholy is quickly replaced by excitement and energy.
