I graduated from here, my parents graduated from and met here, my cousin and aunt graduated from here, my sister just graduated and two more of my siblings are currently attending. My family bleeds blue and gold. This school always gets a bad rap which I don't understand. All school have their issues; that goes without say. The majority of the staff and teachers are helpful, friendly and dedicate so much of free time to their students. Most of the time, students fail because they don't want to ask for help. Granted, every school has teachers that aren't too great but overall Moreno Valley is wonderful. Not to mention we have an amazing AVID program and some of the most brilliant English teachers in existence.

Moreno Valley High School is wonderful. Some of the most caring staff I have ever worked with. The majority of the MVHS staff genuinely cares for these students. As a graduate of this school in 1999, I have nothing but positive comments. Wonderful Administration, very knowledgable Counselors and teachers. Like every other high school in America, there are "bad" students that lack drive and discipline. They don't mix well with the driven students... Like at EVERY school. The class of 2013 earned over $3 million in scholarships. The MVHS AVID program is a National Demonstration program, which means other schools in America are modeled after ours. MVHS also has a top ranked Ballet Folklorico program and an up and coming Band program. This school gets many transfers within the district from students who are very strong in Academics. Overall, MVHS is a safe and education-minded high school. I recommend this school to any student who wants a great education. We often call MVHS "The best kept secret in the Inland Empire."

I find it funny that a parent will blame a school or other students for sending their child to jail for life, as a parent, did you not play a part in raising your child? Do you not take any accountability for your own child? You obviously had no influence on your child. I feel that is the problem with parents, it's so easy to blame 'others' rather than be a parent and take some responsibility for their own children. Show up at school once and awhile and be an active parent in your child's education!! To the person who stated they 'fled' out of Moreno Valley, dramatic much??

This school is known for its outstanding AVID program and creative musical talents. Thumbs up for this school.

After having lived in that city 20 years we fled, and fled the State to a city with a school that is consistently rated 9-10 out of 10. Teachers at MVHS and Sunnymead MS are obnoxious, incompetent and running amok without leadership. It is STILL a family joke 8 years later when we need to describe a person with no respect for society or education that we refer to them as a Mr. Moreno.

My son is a student at MV High School and is a 2012 graduate. "Super Ghetto" No! I don't think so, at least this is my opinion. The teachers were great, the staff were great and very helpful. We never had a problem. During football season we visited other schools in Moreno Valley and Riverside, and after each visit, I was glad he went to MV High School. Parent involvement was lacking - but other than that, I was happy with the school. No school is perfect.

This school needs lot of help! Poor leadership! The teachers are rude and have no business teaching.

I am a parent of 3 and my eldest daughter attended this high school.This school is what i would consider "super ghetto". Drugs are everywhere on campus . Teachers are well-educated and very helpful, however, the enviroment is terrible for the children. It is not safe. I regret sending my child to that school becuase she is now in jail for life. This is because the alumni at Moreno Valley High school in 2009 introduced her too drugs and crime. I would not recommend that any parent/guardian send their child to this high school.

This school is pretty good.My daughter often raves about her counselor mr.peeples.She says he is very helpful and can solve almost any problem.I love how much diversity there is at this school.The only thing bad at this school is I do see drug usage when I drop off and pickup my daughter.I wish the campus supervisors were more on top of that

I'm a soon to be graduate of this school (class of '07!), and while I'm not 100% satisfied with the school, I cannot say that it is a poor school. No, there is not a fight every day, and in my four years there, i was not offered drugs once. Why do I bring these topics out? Because they are the common misconceptions/stereotypes of Mo Val High. There are about 52 seniors on the Avid program, and 48 of them have already been accepted into four year colleges/universities. Not to mention all the other seniors who have been accepted. This year we've received more than $1,000,000 in scholarships/grants. Our valedictorians are going to UCLA. Two years ago, the valedictorian went to Stanford. Why? Because our teachers really do care! The counselors are there, wanting to help us! UC's, Cal State's, trade schools, CC's, we're going somewhere! I Love MoVal!

This school needs much inprovement. It needs to provide a better atmosphere for the students. It needs to stop and prevent violence from happening. Another problem is cutting the music program. It is suppose to be the tradition of Moreno Valley High School and every other high school. But once again, this school finds a way to mess up. But on the good side, the teachers are great. They are much more helpful than some of the other schools I've heard from. The teachers are very experienced and they mainly focus on helping their students succeed after high school. The things that this school needs to focus on is: a clean and safe environment, revival of the arts, higher test scores, and more challenging courses.

I'm not a parent, but I was a student at Moreno Valley High School a little while ago. I am now in college. The only things that ever made me happy about that school was the wonderful teacher it had for Journalism, and the caring teachers it had for Theatre. I feel that Moreno Valley High School is going down. I feel badly that the students there can no longer take classes such as Theatre- it is a class that enlightens and enriches a child's mind, no matter how old the student may be. Please take into consideration the fact that the administration from the years early 2003 back to 2000 did a poor job of supporting the students/staff. The Moreno Valley Unified School District lacks in almost any intelligence about the Performing/Fine Arts. I met my soon to be husband in the Theatre program there, and that program was what made us actually want to come to school. An it was the same with our fellow students. The district cut that fine program due to a lack of money, I heard. However, I feel that that was only one of the issues. Some were that they also lacked in any participation with they school programs and the students/parents who had part in them, and the teachers who lead them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
