The U.S. Department of Education has named Woodbridge High a Blue Ribbon School, a designation that is regarded as the highest academic honor in the nation.
No other Orange County school received the award this year.
“The Woodbridge community has always been worthy of an honor of this size, but what makes this one so special is it represents excellence and growth through the most complicated time for K-12 education we’ve seen in our country’s history,” says Woodbridge Principal Chris Krebs.
This is the second Blue Ribbon designation for Woodbridge, which also was recognized in 1986. Overall, the Irvine Unified School District has earned 20 Blue Ribbon School awards since the federal program began in 1983.
