Congratulations to Plaza Vista School of Irvine Unified School District on their second recipient of the California Distinguished Schools! Their first recipient was in 2010. They also received a California Gold Award in 2016. Plaza Vista consists of Transitional Kindergarten (TK) through 8th grade. It’s one of the four year-round schools in Irvine other than Vista Verde, Westpark, and Woodbury.
There are a couple of advantages to a year-round school. The first advantage of a year-round school is short breaks and more often. It seems like they get a break approximately every two months. The second advantage is inexpensive vacations during the off-season breaks.
