Stanton College Preparatory School

Stanton College Preparatory School is the oldest continually operating high school in Florida and we are very proud of the rich community traditions of the past. Built in the 1860's, Stanton was destroyed, rebuilt, moved, and changed from comprehensive to vocational curricula; and in 1981, became Duval County Public Schools' first magnet school with grades 7-10. A grade level was added each succeeding year with the first graduating class of 54 students in 1984. Stanton College Preparatory School now serves secondary students grades 9-12 living within the 841 square miles of the Duval County school district. Stanton consistently ranks in the top three in the state of Florida for its number of College Board National Merit Semi-Finalists. Students are able to earn college credit through our two programs of study: College Board Advanced Placement (AP)/Honors where students take a minimum of nine AP courses and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) students who take IB coursework beginning in the 11th grade. Our students have an opportunity to make a selection from 54 AP and IB courses along with an array of honors level courses. Our school culture is one of high school spirit and pride as our students participate in over 23 competitive sports and 80 clubs that include special interest, honors, and community outreach groups. We would not be able to maintain our success without the assistance of our wonderful stakeholders that have embraced our Ubuntu theme of "I am because We are" which stems from human kindness.
