Citrus Valley High School is Redlands Unified School District’s fourth high school, which opened in August of 2009. The school is located at 800 West Pioneer Avenue on the north side of Redlands, California.
Citrus Valley High School, named for the region’s famed citrus industry, was constructed in multiple phases on 56 acres. Phase 1 allowed the school to open with just a freshman class and was constructed with funds approved by Measure R passed in 2002. Phase 2 was constructed with funds approved by Measure J approved in 2008 and allowed the school to accommodate the remaining classes of students. Phase 3 was a parking lot built in 2018 as a result of a land agreement with a local residental land owner.
This project was a collaboration with the prime consultant HMC Architects as well as Neff Construction and the City of Redlands. As part of the off-site requirements, Epic produced over 3,000 feet of 16” non-potable water plans as well as off-site Street Improvement plans for agency approval.
Among some of the school’s features are classroom buildings, Performing Arts Center, Gymnasium, Pool Complex, Football Stadium, Water Quality Basin and a large courtyard inspired by the citrus groves that once were part of the site’s landscape.
