The mission of the Irvine Public Schools Foundation is to enrich the educational experience of each child in every school. We achieve this by providing programs, raising funds and uniting the community in support of educational excellence.
IPSF believes that every student deserves an educational experience complete with access to music, art, and science programs, both during the school day and outside of the classroom. With community support and investment, together we can provide enrichment opportunities for our children that will help foster the next generation of thinkers, innovators, and creators.
Aviles Real Estate Group is proud to be recognized in the TOP 100 BUSINESSES supporting IPSF.

Nearly five decades ago, the Irvine Unified School District was founded by forward-thinking educators who settled for nothing short of world-class schools and choices for parents. While times and technologies have changed, our core objective remains the same: to provide the highest quality educational experience we can envision.
IUSD is fortunate to serve a community that truly understands the importance of education. Our PTA members volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours each year, and our parents nurture learning at home by setting aside time for their children to read and study. Meanwhile, we have tremendous partners that fill critical gaps and enhance our programs.

One of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population is working families with children struggling to make ends meet. The high cost of basic living, including rent, transportation and childcare, coupled with the significant lack of affordable housing, puts many families at risk. More than 28,000 school-age children are homeless or housing-insecure. These are the families we see every day.
The Irvine CubeSat STEM Program (ICSP) is a joint educational endeavor to teach, train and inspire the next generation of STEM professionals. It is comprised of students from six different high schools in the City of Irvine whose main objective is to assemble, test and launch a nano-satellite into low Earth orbit. By working on this project, students develop and practice STEM skills in technical documentation and communication, project management, hardware and software, mechanical and electrical subsystems, programming, radio and optical communications, and data analysis. Students are selected by a competitive application process including completing documentation and participating in an in-person interview. Students agree to a year-long commitment in order to complete the mission.
