To promote interracial understanding at her school, student Simone Wiggins founded Costa Mesa High School's first African-American Studies Club, also the first organization of its type in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. Though only 2.3% of the student population at Costa Mesa High is African American, that is the largest concentration at a district high school. The group has sponsored several events, including readings of African poetry and an African dance show.

Despite heavy pressure from the community to buy Costa Mesa High School's former farm, the City Council decided Monday to seek more information before spending millions of dollars for the property, which would be used to build a park and sports complex. Specifically, council members said, they want to find out if officials of Newport-Mesa Unified School District are likely to offer other properties for sale or if the 18 acres at the high school will be the only tract available.

The future of Costa Mesa High School's farm is now up to the city. The board of Newport-Mesa Unified School District voted Tuesday in closed session to offer to sell the city the 18 acres of farmland next to the school. The board earlier had considered selling the site to a home builder to help meet the school district's financial needs, including $15 million in maintenance work at schools across Costa Mesa and Newport Beach.
