The North Florida School of Special Education will undergo a $7.2 million expansion, increasing the amount of space the school has by 32,000 square feet and adding physical education facilities, such as an equestrian center.

That will be the first urban equestrian center in Jacksonville.

The school, which serves more than 200 students, has about 9,000 square feet of space in its Arlington facility at 223 Mill Creek Road. North Florida School anticipates the expansion will allow it to serve at least 190 students between the ages of six and 22 as well as 75 students in the school’s post-graduate program, for a total of 265 students.
