It is located in Tustin, a city in Orange County, California, United States. Its district territory comprises the cities of Tustin, and parts of North Tustin, and the western part of Irvine. It has 18 elementary schools, five middle schools, four high schools, one K-8 school, and one adult school.

History[edit]

In the 1860s, Columbus Tustin bought 839 acres (3.40 km2) of land to found the city of Tustin. In 1872, he built a schoolhouse and donated to the community, founding what was then called the Sycamore School District. In 1889, the district was renamed the Tustin School District. In 1922, Tustin Union High School opened separately, finally merging with the Tustin School district in 1972 to create the Tustin Unified School District.
