We are reporting live from University High School, where it's just been announced that science teacher David Knight is IUSD's 2011 High School Teacher of the Year. Superintendent Gwen Gross delivered the good news to Uni's faculty and staff just after 8 a.m. in the school's multipurpose room.
For the second straight year, all five of IUSD’s traditional middle schools placed among The Orange County Register’s top 10 in its annual breakdown of the county's best middle schools. In fact, this year, they all made the top six.
