Best Schools in Irvine and Tustin

A beautiful apartment home in an excellent community, and outstanding public schools—is it too much for a family to ask? Maybe not.

Irvine Company specifically develops new home and apartment communities surrounded by the best schools in California, while also investing within the districts themselves.  In no small part because of this funding, the city of Irvine has been named as America’s safest big city, with Irvine frequently recognized among the top school systems in California and the United States. Students within both the Irvine and Tustin Unified School Districts have access to signature programs, advanced curricula and exceptional teachers. Whether maintaining a commitment to cutting-edge technology, or offering innovative programs, these districts approach education with a keen eye for evolving knowledge.

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.

Beckman High School is making a name for itself with its Academy of Media Arts, Robotics program, and the CubeSat project to successfully build and launch a miniature satellite into orbit.
