The Tustin Unified School District will accept transfer requests between Monday, January 14, at 8 a.m. and Friday, February 1, at 3 p.m. from elementary, middle and high school students for the 2019-20 school year.
Transfer requests can be made online via the TUSD Website at www.tustin.k12.ca.us (select the “Schools” tab to locate the Student Transfers link). Anyone needing assistance completing a transfer request can come to the back side of Building A at the TUSD Administration Center, 300 South C Street in Tustin. The Student Transfer Office will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All TUSD schools except Red Hill Elementary School, Hewes Middle School, and Beckman High School will accept qualified transfer applications. All grades at these three schools are closed to 2019-20 transfers; only continuing students and Red Hill kindergartner transfers will be approved.
Applications submitted during the transfer period will be processed according to a random and unbiased process based on space availability. Notification of acceptance or denial will be sent this spring.
The District offers a “Legacy of Academic Excellence” with a 98 percent graduation rate (83 percent of graduates attend college or university), small class sizes, seven National Blue Ribbon Schools, 24 California Gold Ribbon Schools, 24 California Distinguished Schools, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) programs, and 21st century classrooms with iPads for students in kindergarten through eighth grade and laptops for high school students.
TUSD student achievement exceeds county and state averages in English/language arts and mathematics on both the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) – standardized test for U.S. college admissions – and the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) – statewide standardized measure of student performance.
Tustin Unified also has a K-12 robotics league and competitions, Spanish dual language immersion program, GATE and STEAM magnet programs, elementary music program, 13 college and career pathways, Tustin Connect online independent study program for grades K-12, award-winning performing and visual arts programs, CIF-recognized athletic programs and sports facilities, and specialized high school programs, such as the Early College Program, International Baccalaureate (IB) and Model United Nations.
