LePort Child Care and Private School to Open Near Irvine Spectrum
Irvine, California, April 17, 2012 – LePort Schools will open a new child care and private school in the Irvine Spectrum area in September 2012. This facility, the fourth LePort location in Irvine, is now accepting enrollment for infants through 8th grade students. It will be located in One Technology Park, at the corner of Technology and Alton, just minutes from I-405, I-5 and the 213 toll way.
“We are excited to bring a high-quality private school and preschool to the Irvine Spectrum area,” says Heike Larson, Vice President of Outreach at LePort Schools. “This school is a great amenity for parents working in the Irvine Spectrum area. It also provides our existing 350 preschool students in Irvine with an option to continue with LePort all the way through 8th grade.”
The school will offer an authentic Montessori program for children ages 3 months to 9 years, and LePort’s proprietary, carefully-crafted, academically rigorous curriculum for children in 4th through 8th grade.
“Irvine is known for its high-quality public education. But with budget cuts, ever larger class sizes and the constraints imposed by the teach-to-the-test standards, we have heard from many families in Irvine who are looking for a private alternative”, explains Ray Girn, CEO of LePort Schools. “As a private school, we are able to limit class size to 16 students. We can hire teachers who are passionate about their subjects, and give them the opportunity to teach content in depth, in a way that makes learning enjoyable and accelerated at the same time. Our students can’t wait to come to school in the morning!”
“I cannot believe that my teens can actually come home from school excited to discuss what they learned that day, and are truly energized about the learning process”, says Kathy Conner, mother of two students at the LePort Mission Viejo campus, which is relocating to the Irvine Spectrum. “The hands-on learning methods have kept both my children engaged in class discussions, and most importantly, inspired them to achieve academic excellence.”

Families are invited to attend Elementary Curriculum Night, held at the LePort San Marino campus at 1055 San Marino in Irvine from 6 pm – 7:30 pm on April 25th. Irvine Spectrum teachers will provide parents with an opportunity experience “mini-lectures”, and gain more insights into what makes LePort 1st - 8th grade program special.
LePort’s other three Irvine campuses are mostly filled for the 2012/13 school year, with only a few spots remaining at the Irvine Lake location for 3- and 4-year-olds. The Irvine Spectrum school is now accepting applications for infants – kindergarten for September. A limited number of spots are also still open for the 1st – 8th grade program.
