Irvine High School opened its doors in 1976. It is one of four comprehensive high schools in the Irvine Unified School District and supports a diverse student population of 1730 students in grades 9-12. In 2007, Irvine High School was named California Distinguished School by the State Board of Education. In 2012, Irvine High School was awarded a full six-year term of accreditation from the Accrediting Commission for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and in 2012 Irvine High School was identified once again as a Leadership Site for our efforts in maintaining a Positive Behavior Intervention Support System for all students.
Since our initial implementation, the PBIS team at Irvine High School, which consists of an Assistant Principal, counselor, principal, psychologist, English Learner Coordinator, parent and four classroom teachers, has worked with staff to create a positive student environment that reinforces our core values of Integrity, Honor Self and Others and Social Responsibility. Our mission at Irvine High School is to enable all students to become contributing members of society empowered with the skills, knowledge, and values necessary to meet the challenges of a changing world by providing the highest quality educational experience we can envision.
A diverse student body helps create a culture of understanding and respect. Our student body includes 33% White, 41% Asian, 12% Hispanic, 5% African American, 3% Filipino and 7% other ethnic groups. In addition, we have 16% socioeconomically disadvantaged and 7% English learners and 7% students with disabilities.
