Irvine Unified School District Reviews

Attending Vista Verde Elementary School as well as University High School, comprised amongst a diverse community, has prepared me to take on whatever the world has to offer and has provided me the edge compared to other individuals my age given how I am now more culturally aware as well as have acquired an adaptable communication skill set allowing me to suitably speak to various age ranges and nationalities by affirming myself with their beliefs.
Given its strong academic performance in public schooling, attaining national recognition, the Irvine Unified School District has gained a reputation known for its academic success. Going through this flawless educational system for the past thirteen years, I now feel confident to achieve greater levels of prosperity that would not have been possible if not for living in a community with an academic competitiveness, yet nurturing aspect which pushes students to overcome any obstacles, personal or otherwise.

Overall, the district is quite diverse between each school. Among the high schools, IUSD has University High School, which is ranked highly in academics and sports like tennis and swim. IUSD also has Woodbridge High, a highly credited school for football and track. In terms of diversity, University High is most diverse with an overwhelming population of mixed middle-easterners, Asians, and Africans. Schools like Irvine and Corona Del Mar have great administration and are extremely safe. Northwood and Beckman have amazing campuses and overall great academics, sports, and teachers.
The Irvine Unified School District is a very academic and extracurricular based district. The community around the school district has very diverse activities such as orchestras, water polo, soccer club, swimming clubs and much more. However, the food here can be disappointing, as it is just frozen and thawed out-delivered foods that seem to be at least a week old from its original date of production. Everyone is very involved and no one is left behind just because of their beliefs, race, ethnicity and etc. It has the best schools in my opinion because of their academic and activities options.
