Forty-five miles east of Irvine, and 12 miles from Val Verde Unified, UC Riverside also forged close ties with the Chinese high school.
The university is ranked 88th in the US, according to US News and World Report, ahead of UC campuses like UC Santa Cruz and UC Merced, but behind UCLA, Berkeley, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Irvine, and Davis. Admission to UC Riverside would satisfy Ma’s promise of entry into a top 100 US university.
“What UCR has agreed is that every student that graduates from Pegasus will have admission to UCR.”
Nearby Val Verde proved key in facilitating the connection between the university and Pegasus. In fact, during a May 2019 Val Verde board meeting, McCormick announced that two district board members would be going to UC Riverside for a signing ceremony memorializing an agreement between Pegasus and the college.
Summary List Placement
The Val Verde Unified School District, in the heart of Southern California’s Inland Empire, isn’t a bad place to get a public education, all things considered. It’s not as well heeled as some of the wealthier Los Angeles exurbs to the west, where districts can spend up to $21,000 a student — Val Verde budgets just over half that. And the majority of its 20,000 students come from low-income families and are eligible for free or reduced lunch.
