One thought on “Tustin, but Irvine Schools

    The Tustin area of Columbus Grove (bordered by Harvard, Warner and Moffett is also serviced by IUSD.

    Included with the cons mentioned for Tustin Field, there is also the noise from Jamboree, the water channel, the nearby waste management facility and the concrete crushing place (noise).

    But the homes there are discounted greatly compared to other newer areas of Irvine and some of them have really nice floorplans.
