The variation with APIs and Equity don't seem to be as directly correlated as you would think.

Regardless, almost any school in the IUSD (and parts of the TUSD) are very good... the OC Register rates the IUSD as top school district again:

Good catch, I've updated the post showing that Woodbury feeds into Irvine High.

The median price is expected to be lower in older neighborhoods where homes are larger. The newer neighborhoods have much higher concentration of entry level smaller detached homes therefore the value ratio is substantially higher.

Part of Woodbury comes under Northwood High, I think. What I did was, plugged random addresses from redfin into the IUSD school locator and listed those schools. Now that I check more houses, it shows the High School as Irvine High.

Ex:35 Diamond #92
Irvine school locator says:

35 Diamond is assigned to the following schools:

Elementary school
Stonegate Elementary
100 Honors
Phone: 949-936-6450

Middle school
Sierra Vista Middle
2 Liberty
Phone: 949-936-6600

High school
Northwood High
4515 Portola Parkway
Phone: 949-936-7200

I framed the pre-qualification letter and posted it at a conspicuous place under adequate lighting so that a guest with normal vision can see it and express substantial jealousy.

I believe the address you referenced is located in Stonegate, which feeds into Northwood High

Yes, that's what I did! Should I just blame redfin and get out of here? :-)
Thanks guys!

I think Irvine High School is actually preferable to Northwood...does anyone else think so?

I think order of preference is:

University
Northwood
Irvine
Woodbridge

(the last 2 are interchangeable... Beckman could probably go in there too)

No, I think Northwood is above Irvine High.
What do they screen high schools on? The scores or the percentage of kids that make it to better colleges?

Yeah, Northwood is ranked higher, but I think I'd rather have my child go to Irvine if I had a choice between the two. Irvine High seems to be a little less academically competitive. There's also a bit more diversity.

I tend to agree with you
IHO's got the order correct
The first two schools are the most sought after

Diamond is the street name for some of the San Marcos homes. Redfin often puts Stonegate homes under Woodbury. The best way to tell is by year built and price. If built in 2011 or later, less than high 900's and detached, it must be Stonegate.

Woodbury residents do have the option to send kids to Stonegate elementary unless they change that.

I would avoid going to Irvine high school. Most of Irvine ghettos feed into Irvine high (cross-reference with the prior post on Irvine's housing stock).

I would rank the High schools in this order:
Tier 1:
University
Northwood

Tier 2:
Beckman
Woodbridge

Tier 3:
Irvine
Tustin high school
