Tustin High Schools: Which School Can I go to?
Tustin Unified School District is home to three great high schools. Each high school offers amazing opportunities for students and their families. The question is, which high school can your student go to? Each high school has boundaries that divide up all of Tustin. If you live in a specific part of Tustin, your student will need to go to a specific high school.
This all means that where you live will determine which of the three Tustin high schools you will attend. Let’s take a closer look at the boundaries of Tustin high schools and determine which one your student will be attending.
Foothill High School
Foothill High School teaches grades 9-12 and is the northernmost high school in Tustin California. Home of the Knights, Foothill High is one of the Tustin high schools that has been awarded a National Blue Ribbon. Many of the courses offer technological advancements and help students learn in the best ways possible.
The boundaries of Foothill High School are jagged. The southernmost part of the boundary is along East McFadden Avenue, then up along Highway 55 until turning east at West First St. The eastern line follows along Newport Avenue until La Colina Drive, where it turns southeast. The Northernmost part of the boundary is Canyon View Avenue.
Tustin High School
Tustin High School is the southernmost high school of all the Tustin high schools. Like Foothill High, Tustin High teaches 9-12th grades. Tustin High School prides itself on the diversity and culture of its students. While the school is a high-ranking high school in California, it’s the students that make the difference.
The northern boundaries meet both Foothill High School’s and Beckman High School’s boundaries. The northernmost part of Tustin High School’s boundary is at the corner of Newport Ave and La Colina Dr. The boundary heads south on both streets. Along the west side of the boundary, it follows Newport Ave down to E.
First St. and then heads towards Highway 95 on the east side of the Highway. The southern tip of the boundary goes just past Alton PKWY and corners off at Jamboree Rd and McGaw Ave. The eastern side of the boundary follows Jamboree Rd all the way up until Highway 5 and then follows it northwest until Browning Ave.
Then, heading northeast along Browning until La Colina Dr.
Beckman High School
Beckman High School has one of the smallest boundaries in Tustin. However, that small size means students may get more attention than at other schools in California. In fact, it shows in the ranking of Arnold O Beckman High School. Tustin High Schools are all great schools, but Arnold O Beckman ranks closely with Irvine Unified School District.
Irvine’s School district is known as one of the best in the nation. The southernmost corner of the boundary for Beckman High is at the corner of Culver Dr. and Trabuco Rd. Heading northeast along Culver Dr., the boundary goes straight into Loma Ridge. From Loma Ridge, the boundary heads north-west into Peter’s Canyon’s south side.
The western border of the boundary follows about a mile west of Tustin Ranch Rd until it gets to Irvine Blvd. Once at Irvine Blvd., the boundary jets out onto Browning Ave., where it heads southwest until it meets Highway 5. Finally, the boundary follows Highway 5 down south until it meets back up with where we began.
