Paxon School for Advanced Studies (PSAS) is one of four International Baccalaureate senior high schools (the others being Stanton College Preparatory School, Wolfson High School, and Terry Parker High School) in Duval County, Florida. According to the College Board's Advanced Placement Report,[citation needed] Paxon has one of the strongest math and science Advanced Placement programs in the state of Florida. Because of this accomplishment, Paxon is one of a select group of Florida schools invited to apply for the Siemens Advanced Placement High School Award.[citation needed] Only ten to fifteen schools per state are invited to apply.[citation needed] Some valedictorians have been accepted to the United States Naval Academy and different Ivy League schools.[citation needed]
