Community
St. Johns County is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, the picturesque St. Johns River on the west, metropolitan Jacksonville on the north and rapidly growing Flagler County on the south. Year round mild temperatures, miles of sandy beaches, the distinction of having America’s Oldest City (St. Augustine), and an internationally recognized sports haven, all add to the allure of the county to both residents and tourists alike. Located in the northwest quadrant of St. Johns County, Creekside High School (CHS) officially opened the doors to its first students on August 22, 2008. Creekside High School has received grade of “A” from the Florida Department Of Education.
