About North Florida School:  

North Florida School of Special Education opened its doors in 1992, brought to life by a group of parents who recognized the need for better educational opportunities for their children with intellectual and developmental differences. These parents dreamed of a learning environment where children who traveled a different developmental path were embraced, educated, nurtured and equipped with the life skills to become contributing members of their community. We have outgrown our current school building and hope to break ground soon on our dream of a 32,000 sq. ft. building that will allow us to nearly double our enrollment. This year, our focus is on continuing to raise the educational bar for students with intellectual and developmental differences, with the ongoing goal to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment while improving academic, vocational and social skills.
