Tustin Memorial Academy (Santa Ana 92705) Is A Top Elementary Magnet School In Tustin Unified School District

2008 API = 937

Total Enrollment = 591


Tustin Memorial Academy the only elementary magnet school in the Tustin Unified School District. TMA features: fundamental and GATE.

The fundamental program for students in kindergarten through fifth grade places special emphasis on reading, writing and mathematics throughout the grade levels.

TMA also offers a self-contained GATE (Gifted and Talented) program for students in first through fifth grade. GATE identified students in these grade levels are grouped together with teachers who have been specifically trained to extend and enhance the curriculum by infusing a greater depth and complexity.


014Another important component of our magnet designation is the contract that every family signs at the beginning of each school year. Students and families commit to behaving responsibly and respectfully, completing and turning in homework, following the uniform/dress code and volunteering at the school. This spirit of cooperation helps create a community that is teeming with students who exhibit scholarly attributes, parents who are willing to be involved in their child’s education and a well-trained and knowledgeable staff and faculty.

TMA’s curriculum is based on the district standards and enhanced by a special emphasis on reading, writing and critical thinking across the grade levels. We are proud to boast continued outstanding STAR test scores, a recent 2005 API score of 927, up from 916 in the prior year. This is the second highest API score in the district. Yet, even these test scores cannot indicate what makes our school special. It is the people: the families, the students, the staff and faculty that make this a place where families choose to send their children, choose to get involved, and choose to excel.
