Tali Wee of Zillow provides a few reasons for why people should consider relocating to Jacksonville.

School Ratings

There are a total of 240 schools in Jacksonville, providing parents and families with a number of possibilities on public, private or charter schools. Out of those 240 schools, there are 24 public schools that have a GreatSchools rating of eight or higher. In comparison, St. Augustine, a smaller city located approximately 50 miles away, has only six public schools that rank that high. Fernandina Beach only has a total of eight schools, limiting options for families with young children who may be considering moving there. There are also more options in terms of type and quality of education in a larger city like Jacksonville than in surrounding suburbs.
