The 25-acre site is designated and zoned for urban residential uses/specific plan. Currently, the site is vacant land.
At this time, the primary focus is on a small, specialized 9th -12th grade high school serving a small attendance area to the north and east of the site. The school would also house open enrollment students attracted to the site by the specialized programs. Those specialized programs would be Academy of career path programs in areas such as technology, engineering, computer graphics, and other similar programs that best meet the needs of the students of the Antelope Valley Union High School District. Depending on the growth rate in this area, a second option also exists for the use of this site. Highland High School currently has approximately 800 9th grade students, and a total student population of over 2,900 students. The District owns no other site within 5 miles of Highland High School. It is possible that the District will need this site to meet the needs of the students in this geographical area, and if so, this site could be used as a satellite 9th grade campus for Highland High School.
