The Chandler Unified School District has approved spending $25 million for land to build a new high school, despite a public outcry from neighbors near the site about noise and traffic congestion.   

The district is planning to build two new schools – one elementary and one secondary – in the southeastern part of Chandler in order to accommodate 3,000 students projected to enter the district over the next decade. 

During a special meeting last Tuesday, the district’s Governing Board unanimously authorized CUSD to purchase 73.5 acres near Gilbert and Brooks Farm roads from LaPaglia Farms. 

The district agreed to pay about $350,000 per acre – a negotiated price that administrators said was justified considering its location and lack of other available parcels within district boundaries.
