Tustin Unified School District Reviews

I love Tustin Schools. I love how all of my schools have been very diverse and accepting of all peoples. I enjoyed my middle school because I was involved in a Magnet program. This challenging program got me ready for High school. While at Tustin High School, I have been challenged and stretched academically. I am involved in a Model United Nations program that has taught me about world issues. In this program I heavily research world issues, write papers, and speak about how we can improve as a world community. This program has helped me decide my major in college and the career path I would like to pursue. Tustin has great schools!

I met some great lifelong friends that I hope to be in business with and grow as people throughout our future careers! Sports were a very uniting pathway between us as we were younger, and it really helped having unquestionably passionate teachers and coaches that made it clear that they were there to support you and help. If I were to change anything, it'd be the same as any other school, to update and maintain different elective courses to further expand on topics that are not covered in common core or basic high school education to meet the subject topic preferences of different generations, since each is typically interested in different things.
