The Tustin Unified School District will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for Legacy Magnet Academy on Wednesday, March 13, at 10 a.m. The new state-of-the-art middle/high school will be located near Tustin Ranch Road and Valencia Ave. in Tustin Legacy.
The school was designed by PJHM Architects and will be built by Balfour Beatty Construction. School construction will take about 18 months with a completion date set for summer 2020. TUSD and the City of Tustin have formed an agreement that will eventually generate $85 million to construct the school based upon the build-out of the Tustin Legacy development.
Legacy Magnet Academy is scheduled to open in fall 2020 and will serve grades six and nine in its first year and, depending on enrollment interest, grades 7 and 8 as well. Eventually, the school will accommodate approximately 1,400 students in grades 6-12. The 33-acre campus is bordered by Valencia Ave., Legacy Road, Moffett Ave. and Tustin Ranch Road.
The public is invited to the groundbreaking ceremony. Individuals can enter through the gate on Legacy Road off Valencia Ave. near Tustin Ranch Road.
