    This school has the best campus of all the schools around. I feel good about moving here from Florida for my daughter to attend this school. She is happy as the teachers are great and the students are friendly with high standards. Track coaches are excellent! My only wish is that the school offered dual enrollment so students can also get college credit. AP classes are offered but dual enrollment is not there yet.

    The school overall is great academically and has many clubs sports and programs to offer. The campus is extremely nice and feels very open. The only thing that I can't agree on is the way that the office staff handle students especially the principal and dean. It seems that protesting an unfair issue is seen as defiance and disrespect. Other than the oppression of leadership criticism great school.

    As a student of this school I can simply say this school is more like a prison then a "fun academic learning area" as they put it. The dress code is ridiculous with its mandatory pants rule and not even a peek of back showing. We might as well wear uniforms! I wish this school would focus more on advancing their academics and sports then trying to hunt down the person who's showing a hint of bra strap. As for their teachers some care but some don't. And the ones who don't don't even care if you have an F or not. Even if you miss a day it feels like you've missed a month of school. Your grade can drop so low if you aren't there and let me tell you..I missed a week of school because of vacation and when I got back my grades were F's and D's nonetheless of If I turned the work in or not. I'm sad to say that even tho I thought this school would be amazing it really isn't. Which is disappointing.

    I absolutely LOVE Murrieta Mesa!! The teachers counselors & principal truly care about the students and it shows! Parental concerns are always addressed quickly and professionally. Dress code is enforced. -) It's wonderful how ALL students are encouraged to get involved in one of the many sports clubs or activities that the school offers. Being new to the district my daughter came in as a freshman knowing no one and making several friends the first couple days. She loves this school. Happy faculty+ Happy students=Happy parents! GREAT JOB Mesa!

    This is an amazing school. My son came from a very small local private school and I was considering sending him to a private high school. But Ithis school opened up his freshman year and I am so glad I sent him here. The teachers do a great job and are well liked by the students. The counselors and principal are wonderful and truly care about the kids. So many options for elective classes sports band and extracarricular activities. GO MESA!!!

    I love this school. My daughter has been in this school for 3 years. The teachers really care. She done well with her grades alot better than I expected. You can send a teacher an e-mail and she will respond within a day. The sports programs need alittle help I'm hoping they will shine in that area at some point. Overall this was a great choice for me this school was not my district. I love the choice I made for my daughter. I just hope the teacher's continue to love teaching.
