In the years that followed, the community played a crucial role in the citrus industry, becoming a vital contributor. Today, Highland’s rich history is still evident in the many well-preserved historic buildings from its early days. These structures serve as a reminder of the city’s heritage and contribute to the strong sense of community that defines Highland today.

Education is highly valued in Highland, and the city benefits from two esteemed school districts: The Redlands Unified School District and the San Bernardino Unified School District. Both have schools that have earned the prestigious designation of California Distinguished Schools, reflecting their commitment to academic excellence.

Featured Employment Case

Am. Nat’l Ins. Co. v. Fair Emp. & Hous. Com., 32 Cal. 3d 603, 651 P.2d 1151 (1982)

In this important decision the California Supreme Court held that high-blood pressure is “protected physical handicap” within meaning of the Fair Employment Practices Act, and that employer violated the statute in terminating man on basis of his high-blood pressure. Here is an excerpt from the Court’s opinion: “Did the Legislature intend to cover only those health problems that are presently disabling? We think not. Indeed it made present inability to perform a particular job efficiently, safely, and without danger to health one of the few defenses to a charge of discrimination. (§ 12940, subd. *610 (a)(1).) The law clearly was designed to prevent employers from acting arbitrarily against physical conditions that, whether actually or potentially handicapping, may present no current job disability or job-related health risk. (See Sterling Transit Co. v. Fair Employment Practice Com. (1981) 121 Cal.App.3d 791, 794, 796, 175 Cal.Rptr. 548.) To limit “handicap” to present disabilities would defy logic. In effect that would proscribe discrimination based on current, manifest, physical disfunction while allowing exclusion on the basis of conditions—like high blood pressure—that may handicap in the future but have no presently disabling effect.
