We interrupt your regularly scheduled winter recess to share a little good news. Two weeks after releasing its middle school rankings, The Orange County Register offered its take on the O.C.'s best high schools, and all four of IUSD's comprehensive campuses earned recognition. Northwood High led the way locally at No.
The Orange County Register released its latest breakdown of the county’s best middle schools on Sunday, and taking the No. 1 spot this year is (drumroll, please!) ... Irvine’s own South Lake Middle School.
Forgive us if we're starting to sound like a broken record, but congratulations are once again in order for the Woodbridge High School Entertainment Corps, which took home a number of honors over the weekend at a competition in Hacienda Heights.
Woodbridge High biology teacher Mike Nakaue was honored Thursday with one of four "Outstanding Contributions to Education" awards by the Orange County Board of Education and county Superintendent William M. Habermehl.
Ninety-six IUSD seniors are in some very elite company this week, having been named semifinalists in the annual pursuit of scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Corp. Overall, 16,000 earned the prestigious honor in the U.S., representing less than 1 percent of all high school seniors. Of that total, some 270 attend schools in Orange County, according to a report in The Orange County Register.
Congratulations to Hari Garg of Rancho San Joaquin Middle School and Rae Holcomb of South Lake Middle School. They're among 300 students -- including seven from Orange County -- selected to advance to the next round in a new science, technology and math competition sponsored by the Broadcom Foundation.
