Also. Tustin high is not called foothill Tustin. Just Tustin high. Foothill high is just foothill high. No town in it's name.

Just a btw

The fantasy isn't complete without the "down to Earth people", preferably in Newport Coast or Corona del Mar.

Default Moving to South OC

We are beginning to look around at different areas in south OC, like San Clemente, Dana Point, etc. Our kids are out so we are not concerned about schools and we will be working in San Clemente. Should we care about the nuclear power plantin SC? How about Mission Viejo or Aliso Niejo? We would prefer proximity to the beach. Thanks

You still need to differentiate tustin Foothill form the other Foothill High School. Perhaps it owudl make you happier if I used Foothill High in Tustin instead of Tustin Foothill High School?

You have better notify the school as well. At sporting events or other places where they are referenced they are frequently referenced as Tustin Foothill in order to distinguish them. They need to correct that mistake.

Having lived within a few miles of both of these high schools...unless I am losing my sight...

Foothill High School is on the corner of Newport Ave and Foothill Ave..in the unincorporated area also known as North Tustin..part of the Tustin School District tho..mascot is the Knights (I see the huge signs several times a week)

Tustin High School is on El Camino Real, Tustin..also part of the Tustin School district..mascot the Tillers..again..see the sign all the time...and no..it does not read Tustin Foothill..just Tustin Hight School..

I just did a thorough search..and can find NO high school referred to as Foothill Tustin...

if you can give me an address I will look again....

not that it matters...tho Foothill is supposed to be a better academic school..its campus is big and beautiful..likely or maybe because the hood it services is pretty affluent

Tustin HIgh School is not that great academically..at one point many of its students came from the Helicopter Base on RedHill...south of Redhill the area is primarily apts and smaller homes...no comparision with the Foothill High School hood...believe me..I live here

again..if their is a Foothill Tustin..please tell me where it is...I couldn't find any school using that name...(even Foothill HIgh does not put Tustin in front of it..at least not in the 25 years I have driven past it..)

Try searching for "Foothill in Tustin." The use of Tustin Foothill is simply an alternate use of language. Kind of like saying Santa Ana Sergerstrom High.

That Segerstom high is in Santa Ana. It is not called "Santa Ana Segerstorm." The Foothill High school I am referring to is in Tustin (or Tustin Hills if you will). It is a way of distnguishing it from Foothill High school in Palo Cedro, or Pleasanton or any other Foothill High Schools. Thus rather than saying "Foothill High School in Pleasanton" or "Foothill High school in Tustin" it is common in the English language to say "Tustin Foothill High School" and "Pleasanton Foothill High school" At athletic events and other competitions it is shortented to "Tustin Foothill" Pleanston Foothill" It is an adjective desribing the noun, not part of the name itself.

Enginlish is not your primary language I take it?

And that is your English lesson for today.

LOL...yeah English is my primary...and only language..

I searched as you suggested..and could find NO listing as Tustin Foothill HIgh..only as I pointed out

actually until the NOrth Tustin moniker was made up(yep it is not a real town)...Foothill high on Foothill and Newport actually has a SAnta Ana Addy...as do all areas in this unincorporated areas...funny is that we have next door neighbors who insist they live in NOrth Tustin..we have always used SAnta Ana..

I will take your word for it that at sporting events and such..the distinction likely must be made...but next time you go by Foothill HIgh please send me a photo of a sign that reads Tustin Foothill High...

obviously a generic sorta sounding name like Foothill can exist in many different towns and areas..

change of subject...I come from a town in Westchester County NY that is totally unique..not another town with the name on the planet..same thing for our high school...

but I get your drift that Foothill is pretty common is many areas..which is why the sporting events likely address the area
