Murrieta Valley Unified School District Reviews

As I am finishing up High School I can say that I am very experienced with how the school system here in Murrieta CA. Currently, I am a incoming senior and through the past three years I’ve been involved with many sports, clubs, leadership and other officer opportunities. While being involved, I noticed how widely the school district cares for all the extracurricular activities. We’re big on fundraising, providing the best materials, coaches, instructors, educators and well run facilities to reach our full potential. I have been lucky to have felt acknowledged in anything I have participated no matter where I stood. During my senior year, I plan on continuing leadership roles at my school meanwhile taking advantage of the rigid education that our educators have agreed to give us. I think many of the students can say that our district has very well rounded schools.

I moved when I was 5 years old from Rialto California to Murrieta. Since then I have been attending schools within the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. Since Lisa J. Mails Elementary School, Dorothy McElhinney Middle School, and lastly Vista Murrieta High School. My experience with the Murrieta Valley Unified School distict has been amazing. I was blessed to have and be surrounded by such amazing teachers and staff throughout my 12 years of education in this district. The teachers and staff as well as students go above and beyond expectations. True passion and drive is perceived all throughout our district, as a very strong and united district.

This is a school that will go all the way out to making sure you know the ins and outs to receiving help to your new classes. This high school is very involved in their academics and very competitive when it comes to sports. Murrieta Valley has free tutoring sessions with respectable students who understand the struggle in the tough classes one might endure. Our school provides honors classes/programs will ensure college readiness. The school is also fairly new as it was the first high school of the beautiful town of Murrieta, built in 1990. With freshly painted walls to a brand new football, a person who appreciates cleanliness would not overlook Murrieta Valley high. We would be glad
greet you into our home of the Hawks!
