The Bolles School of Jacksonville, Florida is an internationally known co-educational college preparatory day and boarding school serving grades Pre-K through 12. In 2007, the school celebrated their 75th anniversary. The school's mascot is the bulldog. The school was founded as an all-boys' military academy in 1933 by Agnes Cain Painter, a friend of philanthropist Richard J. Bolles. The original campus is located on San Jose Boulevard along the east bank of the St. Johns River. Bolles announced that it would drop its military status in 1961 and the graduating class of 1962 ended the military era; it began admitting women in 1971. Today, the ratio of males to females is close to 1:1. The San Jose campus looks like a small college and contains sports facilities that many colleges would envy. -wikipedia, The Bolles School.
