            The Tustin Unified School District Board of Education has announced the name of the new middle and high school in the Tustin Legacy development – Legacy Magnet Academy.  The Board unanimously approved the name at its October 22 meeting.

            Legacy Magnet Academy is scheduled to open in fall 2020 and, depending on enrollment interest, will serve grades six through nine in its first year.  Eventually the school will accommodate approximately 1,400 students in grades 6-12.  The 33-acre campus is bordered by Valencia Avenue, Legacy Road, Moffett Avenue and Tustin Ranch Road.

The District is currently in the process of accepting construction bids for the project, which is anticipated to begin in January 2019.   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 will focus on Technology, Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship (TIDE).  The key components will include project-based learning, innovative entrepreneurship-focus and design-thinking integration.  The school will serve students in the Tustin Legacy development and will be open to student transfers from within the District and surrounding areas (based on availability and approved applications).

            The District will begin the principal selection process in early 2019, and the school’s principal will be announced later that spring.

            “We are very excited to build and open Legacy Magnet Academy,” TUSD Board President Tammie Bullard said.  “This new, innovative state-of-the-art school will guide our students to a bright future.”
