It's lunchtime at San Gabriel High School. Here are the Asian students, clustered on the grassy knoll. Over there are the Latino students, gathered around the cafeteria tables. There's little inter-ethnic mingling on this 3,232-student campus, where most of the student body is evenly split between Asians and Latinos. "I say 'hi' to them, but we stay to ourselves, that's just the way it is," says Angelica, 16, a Mexican-American clad in the teen grunge of flannel shirt and torn jeans.

South Pasadena's school board has placed on the Nov. 7 ballot a $28.7-million bond issue that would pay for campus repairs. The measure would require at least two-thirds voter approval. If it passes, property owners would pay an extra $62 a year in property taxes for every $100,000 in assessed value. The money would go to dozens of repairs in the South Pasadena Unified School District that were recommended by a task force in November, including maintenance to meet earthquake and building codes.
