Jean Ribault High School will be receiving a brand-new school facility anticipated to be completed in August 2025. So that construction can occur on the high school campus, students at impacted schools will temporarily attend school on other school campuses.
Here is the breakdown of things to come.
What: Jean Ribault Middle School (JRMS) students will temporarily attend school on the A. Philip Randolph Career Academies (APR) campus (1157 Golfair Blvd. Jacksonville, FL 32209).
When: The temporary transition will begin in August 2023, and students will be on the APR campus for at least the 2023-24 and 2024-25 school years.
Why: Jean Ribault High School will receive a new school facility, which is expected to be completed by August 2025. During construction, high school students will attend school at JRMS, causing students from the middle school to be temporarily relocated.
How: The two schools, JRMS and APR, will operate as two separate entities. The APR campus has been strategically selected to minimize the contact between the schools.

Per School Board rules, neighborhood bus stops will be provided for students outside of the 1.5 mile radius for APR.
