Now that Menifee Union School District has moved closer towards finally gaining control of Paloma Valley High School, the question comes up, "What About Heritage High School"?
And what about other high schools that Perris Union decides to build close to, or inside of, Menifee?
According to the Press Enterprise yesterday, Perris Union School District apparently is planning to build another high school inside of Menifee...
The $2.5 million set aside for another high school in Menifee from bond Measure Z will still be reserved for that purpose. Perris Union High School District officials have said they are still negotiating for a 60-acre site in Menifee.As for Heritage High School, it actually sits within the proposed borders of Menifee Valley, should Menifee Valley become a city. And right now, teenagers living in Menifee, on the east side of I-215, are within its service area.
Not only does Menifee Union have to buy the physical assets of Paloma Valley High School, but also compensate Perris Union for future financial losses associated with losing so many students.
What makes Heritage High School unique from Paloma Valley High School is that its students are not just from Menifee, but also Romoland, Homeland, and Winchester.
