    To qualify for military priority, the student must live in Duval County, reside in the household of the military personnel, and have transitioned to Jacksonville within the year. In addition  to the magnet application, students wishing to exercise the military priority must also complete the Military Transfer Option Student Transfer Application and required documentation.

  • Do I have sibling preference?

    Posted by:
    In order to qualify for sibling preference, you must have a sibling already attending Mayport Coastal Sciences Middle School and that sibling must be eligible to return to the school for the 2014-2015 school year.  Unfortunately, we cannot offer sibling preference to siblings applying together for the first time or to siblings living in different households. Also sibling preference does not guarantee acceptance.  Placement is at the discretion of the Executive Director of the School Choice Department.

    No. It is preferred students complete the online application. If you want to use the paper application you must  submit your paper application directly to the magnet office. The address is printed on the bottom of the application form.

  • Do I have to get the principal's signature?

    Posted by:
    No, its not required, but it does give your student a priority in the magnet lottery. You can only get the signature if you visit our school during an open house or tour: Plus, we have found over the years that parents who visit our school before they apply are much more satisfied that those who don't.

    Yes, magnet students residing outside of our attendance area are provided limited service to Mayport Coastal Sciences Middle School via existing non-neighborhood Express Routes from the Gilbert, Northwestern, and Ribault attendance areas and shuttle buses from Fletcher High, Sandalwood High, and Terry Parker High.
