Mt. Helix Families Fuming Over High School Boundary Changes

As a Blossom Valley parent of two kids, we are VERY disappointed with GUHSD Board and the Boundary Committee's decision in our community. For about the past 10 years, we have had the choice of attending either Granite Hills or El Capitan. Unless this is overturned, our only choice is El Capitan. Blossom Valley did not have any representation on Boundary Committee and of course we had no say in this. Alpine, which is very close to Blossom Valley, had two members on the Boundary Committee and naturally they can still choose either El Capitan or Granite Hills.

Our family and many other Blossom Valley residents attended several GUHSD Board Meetings and town meetings voicing our concerns. Sure the Board and Superintdent listened but it was almost a formality - just listen but no action on behalf of the families affected.

Blossom Valley residents have been very aware of GUHSD Board over the past few years unlike Mt Helix because of Alpine High School. The Alpine High School bond measure was voted and approved for Alpine and Blossom Valley students. Unfortunately it has been delayed. Even if it was built timely, it wouldnt be built big enough for Blossom Valley students even though bond measure said it would because of GUHSD Board. We are very frustrasted by GUHSD Board and may consider sending our kids to a private school.
