The St. Johns County School District has received a recommendation that it be awarded district accreditation as a quality school system. This recommendation was made by the AdvancED External Review Team at a special School Board meeting held April 10. District accreditation is the highest level of accreditation that a school system can receive from AdvancED, the recognized accrediting agency for K-12 schools internationally. Five years ago, the district received its initial accreditation.
Prior to this, all St. Johns County schools were individually accredited. View the Durbin Creek’s Accreditation Survey Results.
