Welcome to Mandarin Oaks for the 2021 - 2022 School Year!

Mandarin Oaks Elementary School is an "A" school for the 20th year in a row!
A Florida School of Excellence and Recipient of the Golden School Award 


Welcome to Mandarin Oaks Elementary School.  

It is my 5th year serving the community as the principal of Mandarin Oaks. Our school has a reputation of excellence that has been reflected in earning a school grade A for over 20 years in a row!  

We strive to provide an environment that includes high academic and behavior standards. It is our steadfast belief that each child can and will be successful. We desire Mandarin Oaks to be a place where students feel cared for, become engaged in learning, and reach their full potential before they leave us for middle school. We believe it is an investment that will not only impact our area here in Mandarin but Duval County, Florida, and even globally!  

We invite you to join us on this journey by partnering with us through being involved in the PTA, SAC committee, and volunteering in the school. We embrace our families and community partners as vital parts to the success Mandarin Oaks achieves yearly. 

I invite you to “Get Wild about Learning” with us. Let’s make the 2021-2022 an unforgettable school year! 

Educationally yours,

Leigh Butterfield
