The Alhambra City and High School Districts board has narrowed its list of potential high school sites to three, all of them in Rosemead.
The board picked the three, designated A, B and I, from a list of 10 and each will be evaluated in an environmental impact report.
The selection of a school site has aroused strong controversy. Many residents whose homes have been included in potential sites have protested. In addition, the Rosemead City Council has opposed any site in that city, arguing that most of the schools' enrollment growth has occurred in Monterey Park.
The Monterey Park City Council has opposed any site in that city that would take homes. Monterey Park residents who favor placement of a high school in or near that city suggested two sites, one a hillside location in Monterey Park and the other on industrial land in Alhambra, but neither site was acceptable to the school board.
