Nease High School is one of the best schools in St. John's County, FL. With a wide array of sports and clubs to choose from, it's impossible to not get involved. The school spirit is off the charts! The only negative aspects of it are that the rules are a little ridiculous sometimes (no tank tops at an outdoor school in the 90 degree Florida weather!) and that the school is pretty crowded. However, this crowd has allowed for the expansion of the school itself, including a new two-story library and more parking areas and practice fields, which also gives the school a minor architectural update from it's 80s era structure. After attending Nease for four years, I can honestly say that there is no other high school in Florida I would have rather attended.

Whenever a typical child pictures a high school experience they immediately think of: High School Musical. Although no high school can perfectly incapsulate the dancing and singing dynamic of the movie, I believe that Nease High School has the spirit and camaraderie seen. In my experience, the students, teachers, and faculty are all excellent. They really do all work together to formulate a positive environment that will solely benefit the needs of the students, pertaining to educational benefits, social interaction, and life lessons. Of course, I am sure the entirety of students who buy school lunches would love to see better food, yet given budgeting and demands, I know Nease does its best to supply healthy and tasty options for lunch. As a graduating senior, I could not have asked for a better high school experience. Allen D. Nease High School is a fantastic school who tries its best! What more can you ask for?
Nease High School has great teachers and is conveniently located. The 4 academies are good, however the Stellar Academy of Engineering has gone down hill in the past couple of years. I learned nothing in my senior year due to the previous teacher retiring. The new teacher knew nothing about our program, therefore it was a waste of 45 minutes everyday.

The outdoor campus is nice and different than other schools where the students are stuck inside all day. The campus is old and is in desperate need of a fresh look which I believe they are working on this summer.

In summation, Allen D. Nease is an average school that has potential to be a great school. However the facilities are currently overrun with each wave of a new class and Nease's old and outdated campus cannot currently support a 2000 plus student enrollment. Hopefully this upcoming school year (2017-2018), Nease will have a fresh new campus with the ability to support all of its students.
