Nassau County School District officially christened Wildlight Elementary School on August 26, 2017. Dr. John Ruis, Superintendent, along with board members and other dignitaries, cut a ceremonial light blue ribbon at the main entrance of the school declaring it officially open. Wildlight Elementary will serve 608 students in grades Pre-K through 5 and also provide space for public use. R. Dean Scott, Architect, Inc. designed the $22,923,000 facility which covers nearly 110,000 square feet over a 27 acre site. The Owner and Architect collaborated with Raydient Places, the developer of Wildlight, to integrate the new school into its planned community. Wildlight Elementary is designed for future expansion to 800 student stations and also includes emergency shelter space for residents to use during extreme weather events.
Thomas May Construction Company of Orange Park, Florida provided construction services for the project.
