National Blue Ribbon and California Distinguished Schools

A Superb Education

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private schools based on their overall academic excellence and is the nation’s highest level of recognition for K-12 campuses. In Irvine, more than 31 schools have been awarded either National Blue Ribbon Awards or received California Distinguished School Awards, while Tustin Unified has received eight National Blue Ribbon School honors and 37 California Distinguished School awards.

In 2006, the Irvine Company and the Donald Bren Foundation announced a $20 million donation that established the Excellence in Education Enrichment Fund in the Irvine Unified School District, a gift that has given thousands of fourth- through sixth-graders remarkable instruction in art, music and science. Moreover, Irvine Unified high school students scored significantly higher than state, national and global students in biology, chemistry, physics, art history, music theory and studio art drawing.

Tustin Unified offers STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Program—at each of its middle and high schools. This enriched program engages students by using a hands-on, project-based curriculum to create, build and apply math and science concepts to everyday problem solving. Furthermore, K-8 students are equipped with Apple iPads since innovative technology greatly assists the learning process. High school students receive Toshiba Proteges -- advanced tools to cultivate a  culture of tech-savvy learners.

From San Diego to Orange County; Los Angeles to Silicon Valley;  the Irvine Company believes that communities  really can have it all: a stunning Coastal California home with impeccable finishes, amenities galore, endless green spaces with over 57,000 acres of permanently preserved land – and an academic environment where youth can flourish.
