When Mrs. Jarrell, the new Principal at A-rated Wards Creek Elementary School in World Golf Village, agreed to create a video tour of the school, it was no surprise she wanted the spotlight to be on the award-winning St. Augustine school and not on herself. The more time we spent with Mrs. Jarrell, the more we came to see why she was the perfect person to continue Don Campbell’s legacy. She invited us on a private tour of the school, while the children were off having fun for Spring Break!
Wards Creek Elementary School is a top performing school in St. Johns County, which is the top performing school district in the state of Florida. Mrs. Jarrell explains their success is built on strong academics and strong character. The pre-kindergarten through 5th grade elementary school has embraced Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” becoming a Franklin Covey “Leader in Me” School and helping students develop essential life skills and character. Wards Creek Elementary School is working towards Lighthouse Status – there are only 24 Lighthouse Schools in the nation.
Mrs. Jarrell’s tour of Wards Creek Elementary School shows an inviting, advanced and safe environment for learning for the resident students of World Golf Village. Built in 2007, each classroom at Wards Creek has the latest in technology, including audio assist. Dynamic teachers keep students excited about learning and physical activity is an important part of the school experience – not only free play on the playground, but also through community service activities like Relay for Life.
We are very blessed to have someone as intelligent and passionate as Mrs. Jarrell heading the Wards Creek Elementary School family. For more information on Wards Creek Elementary School or relocating to our St. Augustine golf course community, please contact a Davidson Realty agent at (904)940-5000.
