ACE Program

Looking for activities to keep your child engaged and learning while having fun after the school day? IPSF’s ACE program is offered in cooperation with the Irvine Unified School District to provide opportunities for students to pursue their passions and discover new interests through hands-on learning. Whether your child wants to be a scientist, engineer, chef or artist, ACE classes provide the guidance and tools to get there!

Plaza Vista is still looking for an ACE Coordinator for the new school year.  Please contact IPSF if you are interested!

Art Programs

IUSD's art program for grades PreK - 6th grades at Plaza Vista is taught by Julie James.


Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) is an education program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior.  Students who enter the program sign a pledge not to use drugs or join gangs and are informed by local police officers about the dangers of recreational drug use in an interactive in-school curriculum.  Here at Plaza Vista, all of our fifth grade students participate in the DARE program.
