There are a number of options for such a screen. One would be a clumping type of bamboo (running types can be invasive if the roots are not contained. Other options (which may take a wide area in order to be as tall as you want) are 'Bright N Tight' Carolina Cherry Laurel (Prunus caroliniana), 'Little Gem' Magnolia, Natal Plum (Carissa) and oleander.
