High school students in French Valley being bused to Hemet will soon be able to go to Temecula Valley High School.
The school board voted to redraw the boundaries between the Hemet and Temecula school districts to cut the amount of time students living near Pouroy and Winchester roads spend going to and from class.
The closest high school in Hemet is farther than the ones in Temecula, said Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Lori Ordway-Peck.

Students will be unable to attend the nearest high school, Chaparral, because it’s too full, Ordway-Peck said.
Some residents fear TVHS is also too full, said Anthony St. Martin, a volunteer who gathered signatures on a petition to get the district boundaries redrawn.
Some of his neighbors called the district to ask how to transfer, and they were told they had no chance of getting into the school, St. Martin said.
“They were mocked, saying these kids would never get into the Temecula school district,” he said to the school board during a meeting earlier this month. “Could you notify the people in the office to stop mocking our residents?”
