A’s went to Allen Nease and Ponte Vedra high schools. B schools are Bartram Trail, Creekside, Pedro Menendez and St. Augustine high schools.
M stands for “maintaining” and is applied to St. Johns Technical High School, which for 2009-10 received an F.District officials have disagreed with that F score, arguing the school is designed as an alternative school and uses a different rating system than traditional high schools.
