Irvine Unified School District Reviews
The Irvine Unified School District is truly an environment that fosters great thinking and learning. I personally began studying in this district in 5th grade when I moved to America; it took me no time to find lifelong friendships and get immersed in the learning experience. IUSD employs a very high standard of cutting edge technology to further understanding of concepts in a way few other do. Furthermore, the teaching staff is generally highly qualified and greatly expands the academic setting. However, the major drawback to IUSD is the lack of diversity and the highly competitive environment created. Although this competitive environment forces many to improve their academic standing, it can be very demeaning for the average "C" student as such a grade is often penalized by other students. Overall, IUSD has been an amazing host in my academic and athletic development throughout my Elementary, Middle, and High School years.
Currently becoming Sophomore in my next high school year, moving school because of the District requirements are all different from all the high school. Academically, almost all of the Irvine students are academically high and incredibly smart. Like Northwood High School, which was my previous school, they had this new science system that from the class of 2022 and next years are required to take Integrated Science 3 before taking AP on Junior rather than taking AP on Junior. Advantages are that the sports and communication between students and teachers or District are really convenient.
All in all, a very good school district, but like most other districts, it has its flaws. The administrators are not transparent with students. The quality of education it once provided has significantly dropped as well. This is best reflected in the decrease in enrollment. Additionally, the new teachers are struggling to bridge the gap that's been left by more experienced teachers. Sports facilities are also very old. Each school campus is also very old. Soccer fields, for example, are in very poor condition. I am sure with more funding, this district can reclaim its position as one of the finest districts in the state and nation. In the meantime, it should not be as poor as it is, because it is a very affluent district.
