Top-notch Education

The fact that Ponte Vedra Beach was ranked 50th on the list of 100 finalists for CNN/Money magazine’s “List of Best Places to Live” should tell you already that this is a great place to live, but there is more to it than just clean streets and affluent residents. The local school district is ranked as one of the best in the state. There are two public high schools that consistently score highest on state rankings as well as of private kindergarten through eighth grade education at the local Catholic Academy. The high taxes fund the quality of education here.

History of Ponte Vedr

There is an odd sort of history around this particular beach community. Dating all the way back to Ponce de Leon’s days in the early 1500s up through the war days on the 1900s, the road to the upscale resort community it is today was a long and winding one. It was mainly uninhabited until the 19th century when minerals, mainly titanium, were discovered nearby, and a mining town began to boom. After the demand dropped for mining once the war ended, development changed to focus on building one of the top resort destinations in the country.
