Voting Will Affect Future Education in San Gabriel

March 22, 1992

The expansion of San Gabriel High School (and other high schools in the Alhambra district) is necessary because of growth, which qualifies for state funding and will not require local bond support.

If San Gabriel unifies, however, the new high school will have to be built entirely by local property owners. The committee says this will cost only $200 a year.

What they do not make clear is that the number is $200 per $100,000 assessment. Sell a north San Gabriel house today (or add onto yours) and the new owner (or you) will pay $600-$800 per year.

Apartment rents will definitely rise. The cost is hardly justified when quality programs already exist at San Gabriel High School.

San Gabriel High School could be expanded to meet student needs at no cost to local residents.
