Allen D. Nease High School
Public high school in Ponte Vedra, Florida, United States
Nease High School is named after Allen Nease, a pioneer in Florida's reforestation efforts, and donor of the land on which the school was built. Nease also served on the St. Johns County School Board for 24 years, 17 of which as chairman.
Growth in the northeast corner of St. Johns County, primarily in the Ponte Vedra Beach/Palm Valley areas during the 1970s had warranted the construction of a new school. The school, which opened in 1984, is the second public high school built in St. Johns County. The school first opened as a Junior/Senior High School, but as the growth of Northwest St. Johns County rose the school eliminated its Junior high sector. Nease was originally designed to accommodate up to 1,500 students, however, enrollment has historically been at above capacity. Bartram Trail High School opened in the Fall of 2000 to alleviate overcrowding. Due to the continual growth in Northwest St. Johns County area, Ponte Vedra High School was built and opened in the Fall of 2008.
Allen D. Nease Senior High School is currently zoned to serve the communities of Palencia, Ponte Vedra, Town of Nocatee, Kensington, Las Calinas, and World Golf Village. The main feeder schools are Pacetti Bay Middle School and Valley Ridge Academy, while other students come from Alice B. Landrum Middle School or Fruit Cove Middle School.
Nease High School was rated the 81st best high school in 2007, 91st in 2008, 93rd in 2009, and 185th in 2010 by Newsweek. Nease High School ranked 977th in the U.S. News and World Report 2018 list of best public high schools in America.
