The District has comprehensively and diligently worked over the past several years in the planning and design of its High School #4 project. An approximate 52-acre site was acquired for this school and is located at the northwest corner of Wickerd and Leon Roads just east of the City of Menifee.
Initial planning for this school began with the development of forward-thinking and comprehensive educational specifications. From the inception of initial planning, it has been the primary goal to create learning environments throughout all areas of the campus that will facilitate the District’s emerging instructional and technological approaches. Special emphasis has been placed upon the creation of spaces that uniquely promote collaboration amongst the school’s students and staff.
The campus master plan has been developed to accommodate approximately 2,600 students in grades 9 through 12. A wide range of facilities are planned to include small learning communities, modern classrooms, athletic and art program spaces, career training facilities and the educational technology needed to support high quality instruction in science, technology, engineering, arts, math and skilled trades.
These efforts have been made possible, in large part, because voters overwhelmingly approved Measure T in 2012 to upgrade and expand classrooms and facilities. With Measure T, we have been able to complete Pinacate Middle School, construct Phase II improvements at Perris High School and finalize planning and design of High School #4 and Middle School #2. Approximately $75 million of Measure T is set aside for projects in Menifee including future construction of High School #4.
We are excited about the possibilities of this new school, which would fundamentally address growing student enrollment and support innovative, 21st-century educational methods. From an overall perspective, it is the desire of the PUHSD to create a school that will become a true focal point and important resource within the community.
