The Irvine Unified School District’s state standardized test scores ranked highest in the state in math and second highest in the state in English Language Arts/Literacy, for school districts of 25,000 or more. This comes on the heels of IUSD being ranked first in Orange County for both math and English Language Arts/Literacy.
“I am incredibly proud of Irvine Unified students’ outstanding performance. These results are a testament to our collective efforts and the special partnership between our hardworking students, dedicated families, and talented staff,” said Superintendent Terry Walker. “IUSD continues to thrive in a challenging environment, including a new state funding model that will continue to adversely impact our educational resources. As we strive to ensure that the Irvine Unified School District remains one of the highest-performing districts in the country, we will continue to leverage collaboration and connections with our students, parents, staff and community partners.”
Last spring, IUSD students in grades three thru eight and grade 11 participated in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which provides information on each student’s progress on the new standards. While the scores are just one of many measures of student performance, they help to enhance IUSD’s understanding of each student’s needs and inform our educational efforts.
