was opened in 1927 on the Southside of
Jacksonville. As South Jacksonville grew Landon High School grew, prospered and developed to become a leader in academic & athletic achievement. Students won academic honors, sports teams won championships and graduates went on to change the world. I was fortunate to have called South Jacksonville my home in the 50s. I treasure the memories and life long friends from Landon. Landon High
School (Duval County Public School #31)
