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 cry every time I think of waking up and going to this place. Great campus, staff, programs but the students here are annoying. There's nothing but drama. HeLP. b y e

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.

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.
