Woodbury Elementary School Prepares For Fall Grand Opening

Dedicated and passionate teachers. Excellent learning environment. Outstanding educational opportunities. All of this and more will soon be within walking distance for children who live in the award-winning village of Woodbury!

Construction is progressing on Woodbury Elementary School, the newest state-of-the-art facility in the highly regarded Irvine Unified School District. Located within The Commons, Woodbury’s 30-acre social and recreational heart, the new school is scheduled to open this fall. Woodbury children will be able to walk or ride their bikes to school via the pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly network of trails that links all the neighborhoods of Woodbury with various village amenities.

“This is an exciting time at Woodbury,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “The pools and play areas at The Club are open, the shops, restaurants and stores at Woodbury Town Center are debuting, and soon a new school will be opening its doors.”

The K-6 Woodbury Elementary School will accommodate 700 students and utilize the latest in technology, including a computer lab with 36 computers for direct instruction and an additional 30 or more computers in each classroom wing for student use throughout the day.

Also part of the new school campus will be a media center, separate kindergarten area, multipurpose area, food service area, lunch shelter, playfields, and hardcourts. In addition to the school’s strong academic programs, students will benefit from instruction in music, art, PE, and science from specialists in these fields.

Woodbury Elementary will be a year-round, single-track school that starts its new year in July. Children will attend four approximately nine-week school sessions, separated by three week breaks in September/October, December/January and March/April. In addition, a five-week summer break begins on the same day that the district’s traditional schools let out for summer.

“Woodbury has become an incredible place to live,” said Maddalon. “And, as spring turns into summer, the advantage of Woodbury’s parks, play areas and resort-like Clubhouse will become even more pronounced!”

Central to the Woodbury lifestyle is The Club, the residents-only, resort-inspired facility that is the centerpiece for village recreation and socializing.

The Club features a Junior Olympic-sized competition pool that is home to the Woodbury Waves swim team, a resort pool and spa with cabanas and barbecues, and a lagoon pool accessed via a “beach entry” with a children’s water garden and wading pool. Club facilities also include four lighted tennis courts, a lighted basketball court with gated entry, a sand volleyball court, sunny courtyards and other social seating areas, an outdoor fireplace, a Great Lawn ideal for outdoor events, and two multi-purpose buildings available for private parties — one with a catering kitchen.

Adjacent to The Club is the Woodbury Community Park, offering a soccer field, two baseball diamonds, two lighted full-sized basketball courts, a tot lot, picnic tables and play areas, and a community center building staffed by City of Irvine personnel.

Supplementing all the recreational and socializing facilities of The Commons are 14 additional Woodbury parks, squares and gardens, several of which are already open.

And, Woodbury residents benefit from the convenience of the close-to-home Woodbury Town Center, a 450,000-square-foot commercial center with a wide range of stores, restaurants, medical facilities, and services.

Woodbury offers something for everyone in its variety of new homes, with residential opportunities currently available in the village districts of Magnolia Square, Peppertree Square, Promenade Square, Cypress Square, and Laurel Square. Home prices start from the mid $400,000s.
