THE PEOPLE SPOKE

They want Castaic High. For decades, there has been talk ad infinitum about building a high school for Castaic. A portion of a popular bond measure passed in 2008 is being used to build Castaic High School.

CASTAIC: THE HUB OF CALIFORNIA HISTORY

Future students will have the ability to learn about their rich local heritage. For thousands of years, Castaic was the center of Amerindian trade routes. Castaic High sits near the base of the world-famous Ridge Route. Castaic is the site of the first major gold discovery in California (1796 — the Lost Padre Mine) and home of America’s largest, longest and deadliest range war — just to name a few historical tidbits.

INTERNING OPPORTUNITIES AT CASTAIC LAKE & DAM

A couple miles away is the famous Castaic Dam and Lake, one of the world's most ambitious engineering projects. Since its completion, Southern California’s largest reservoir has been a boon to the development of the region. There will be many opportunities for the school and the lake to work together, from environmental to engineering, from internships to mentor-ships within public works.
