Stanton College Preparatory School is an academically renowned American high school located in Jacksonville, Florida, whose history dates to the 1860s, when it was begun as an elementary school serving the African-American population under the then-segregated education system. It now serves secondary students within the Duval County school district in grades 9-12. The school offers special curricula which include Honors courses, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate courses. In 2005, the Advanced Placement Report to the Nation[2] officially recognized Stanton College Preparatory School as the best large size high school for Advanced Placement European History and Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition in the world.
From 2000 to 2003, Stanton College Prep was ranked first in Newsweek magazine’s list of the top 1,000 public schools in the United States, and is the only school in the nation to have been in the top 5 every year from 2000-2011.[3][4][5][6][7] US News and World Report ranked Stanton at ninth place on its 2008 list of America’s Best High Schools.[8] It has frequently ranked 1st in the United States in the number of International Baccalaureate diplomas awarded. Stanton perennially leads the Jacksonville metropolitan area in the number of National Merit Scholarship recipients, and consistently ranks in the top three in the state. The school has been named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.[9] In 2011, Stanton was rated number 17 of the top high schools in the nation by US News[10] and number 4 by Newsweek.[7] Stanton has been called “one of the premier IB and AP public schools in the country" by Jay Mathews in his 2005 book “Supertest: How the International Baccalaureate Can Strengthen Our Schools." To many students, Stanton is known for its challenging academics and rigorous standards. Most Stanton graduates attend some form of college after graduation, whether four-year or two-year institutions, local, national, or international.
