The closer to Woodbury the better. CV is great up near Trabuco, but I can't understand why anyone would want to live much closer to the 5. Especially in the Mulberry extension for $1m+. The school/park/freeway combo will cause a lot of noise and traffic.

Totally agree.  The portion near Woodbury is pretty decent but anything south of that is not good. 

Interestingly enough, the area next Stonegate (area 5b) will probably end up being the most desirable area (outside of OH).

Wow...this is no good for CV.

Irvine High School: The area bordered by Jamboree Road, Irvine Center Drive, Culver Drive and Barranca Parkway from goes Woodbridge High to Irvine High. This will not include the non-contiguous elementary boundary area assigned to Stonecreek Elementary bordered by Jamboree Road, Irvine Center Drive, Harvard Avenue, and Moffett Drive, with the remaining assigned to Woodbridge High. Cypress Village will remain assigned to Irvine High.

A lot of parents complained that Woodbury fed into Irvine rather than Northwood.  Of course, there is probably going to be a HS 6 in a few years so it may not matter much.

So do you think the new high school will be better than Irvine High?

Yes because new schools in general get the most attention from the district.  Irvine and Woodbridge are seen as the least desirable HS (still great but not as good as Uni or Northwood).

You also get a cluster factor in which the newer schools are built near newer and more expensive areas, which generally means higher test scores.

3 year API average has Irvine and Woodbridge at 879, Uni at 911, and Northwood at 913.

i think any new high school will soon top the list of best high school in irvine, at least based on test scores.  the new developments are hardcore asians who make education their top priority. so to answer your question. yes.

TIC was smart to skip to the extension and save the last phases for north of Roosevelt.  You're right, the area between Trabuco and Roosevelt is the best location.

The states without sales tax, like Oregon, are at an automatic advantage.

I think the fundamental question is one of tradeoffs and what you value most. If you're an indoors-type person, there are plenty of other cities and states calling your name.


Where does one go if they like the outdoors, but hate bike riding, but here for the schools, but don't want to spend more than $50k to upgrade new construction?

I answer with this simple yet profound statement:

"If I were in Cypress Village..."

Ok. This made me spit out my seaworth (#bestsludgeever). ROFL.

I contacted MLS and they said price is not able to be taken off.

"Under the Rules and Regulations of the MLS section 11.4, by submitting a listing into the MLS you are granting the MLS copyright ownership and authority to use the information for comparable compilations.  Once a listing is sold the cooperating broker and participants do not have access to change any of the information in the listing.  The listing becomes historical data and under section 11.8 removal of historical data is forbidden."

Maybe you have to do it before it is sold?
