Dear Community Stakeholders:
Welcome to Duval County Public Schools' online
guide for new and potentially-new to dcps! When you
change residences, whether you move across county lines
or across the country, there is so much to learn about
your new town. The one that tops most parents' lists is
to find a great school for their children. If you are a
parent who is new to the area, you came to the right
place! Not only is our county one of the largest per
square inch in the country, our district is one of the
largest public school districts in the nation. And, we
are striving to become the best.
Within our district, there are 183 schools
(104 elementary schools, two K-8 schools, 24 middle schools, two 6-12 schools, 19 high schools, three exceptional student centers, one virtual school, seven alternative schools and
21 charter schools.)
The district is divided into four
clusters with a cluster chief heading up each one. Clusters 1 and 2 divide the K-5 schools. Cluster 3 and 4 divide the middle and high schools.
We serve approximately 125,000 students who
represent a diverse population.
On any given day, there are many wonderful things
happening in schools throughout Duval County. In an
effort to provide a glimpse into the many exciting
educational activities that enhance student and parent
involvement, each of Duval County schools has a presence
on our web site. Please utilize our web site to learn
all you can about our excellent schools. If you have
any questions, let us know.
It's an exciting time for Duval County Public Schools,
and we invite you to join us on our journey.
