Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Today is Monday, December 19, 2022.

Be sure to purchase tickets for this evening, Monday, December 19th to hear our choir perform at The Bridge.  

We will be on a special schedule for the remainder of the week for semester finals. Please download and note the adjusted times for the remainder of the week. There are also adjustments to the detention and learning center schedules due to finals this week.

When we return for the new year, we will host campus tours and our showcase event. Be sure to watch for more information as those events get closer.

This week’s update includes our teacher of the year, sports news, our student-selected students of the month, and our athletes of the month.

We hope students are able to finish this fall semester strong, and that everyone enjoys a well-deserved break until we return in January.

This will be my last newsletter message until January 9th. Be sure to check this page for other updates and highlights in the new year!

School Choice Intra-District Transfer

The School Choice Intra-District Transfer is the process for SVUSD residents who want to transfer their student to another school within SVUSD. This includes students who receive Special Education Services in Specialized Programs

Secondary School Choice application window is from January 9, 2023 through January 27, 2023.

This is for incoming 7th - 12th grade students for the 2023-2024 School Year

All schools are open

  • School Choice Intra-District Transfer only applies to students who live within the Saddleback Valley Unified School District attendance boundaries. Requests for placement will not be done on a first-come, first-serve basis, instead will be approved using an unbiased random Lottery selection process and only if space is available at the school requested.  This is the only process in which to request a transfer from your school of residence.
  • If you live outside of the SVUSD you will need to apply for an Inter-District Transfer from your resident district.
  • Please complete one application per student.
  • Students may request a 1st and 2nd choice of schools.
  • Once the application is approved the choice school will become your school of residence throughout 9-12 grade. The district is unable to hold a space for your student at more than one school. Please give this consideration before submitting a School Choice Intra-District Transfer application.
  • IF YOUR STUDENT IS NOT CURRENTLY ATTENDING SCHOOL IN SVUSD you will need to attach a current electric, gas, water bill or a rental/mortgage statement which clearly indicates your current address. (Your application will not be processed without this.
