Coastal Sciences Program

The campus has a marine science lab with two large saltwater touch tanks that allow students to reach in and explore sea life. The school also has 60-year-old tortoise, a turtle, other marine life, an outdoor biodiversity garden that students manage, and a fish hatchery where fish are raised and then released to the wild. By using local habitats to learn, Mayport Coastal Sciences can offer young pupils a hands-on education unlike any other. Mayport Coastal Sciences Elementary allows students to explore the fascinating world of biology, meteorology, and environmental science right in their backyard.
