Our state-of-the-art facilities include an 800-seat Performing Arts Center, an Aquatic Complex, two gymnasiums, weight and fitness rooms, a Fine Arts Center with three music studios and three arts studios, two libraries, eight science labs, a baseball field, basketball courts and athletic playing fields.
Located in an idyllic, safe, coastal community, Vero Beach was named fourth in Coastal Living Magazine’s 2018 "Top 10 Happiest Seaside Towns in America.” With an average of 235 sunny days per year, residents enjoy a wide spectrum of outdoor activities such as paddleboarding, kayaking, surfing, golf and tennis year-round. Quaint oceanside shops lined with palm trees, sprawling oaks, a historic downtown, museum and art galleries, vibrant theatre arts scene, and an abundance of nature trails and parks, are all hallmarks of Vero Beach--a “crown jewel” of the Treasure Coast
