    Welcome to Murrieta Mesa High School, the Home of the Rams! 

    While Mesa is a young school, opened in the Fall 2009, our accomplishments are those of a well-established school with a clear direction for our students. We have earned the distinction of being named an AVID National Demonstration School, and in 2019 we will have our first students earn the AP Capstone Diploma, a distinction available at less than 15% of CA high schools. Athletically we have won three C.I.F. Championships and one CA State Championship in the last three years.

    During my time at Mesa, I have learned what a special place this is for our students, staff, and families. We have a community that is invested in the success of each other. We have a staff that never hesitates to go the extra mile to help our students. We have students that understand the importance and value that everyone brings to the table. At Mesa we truly believe that we are in this together. Like many other high schools, we offer a ton of opportunities for our students to be involved and be successful. However, what sets us apart from any other high school is our culture. This is a great place to be a student and a great place to work.

    Mesa offers College and Career Pathways in the following areas: Business/Culinary, Engineering, Liberal Studies/Education, Medical and Visual/Performing Arts.  These pathways allow students to pursue areas of interest and receive a relevant and meaningful education.  Students will have the ability to participate in partnerships/internships and take Career Technical Education courses to promote post-secondary education and career opportunities in the 21st century.  The goal of Murrieta Mesa is to actively engage all students in their education and a total high school experience both in and outside the classroom.

    Our motto is “Pursue your Passion…Leave a Legacy!” and our acronym, “P.R.I.D.E. - Purpose Responsibility Integrity Duty Excellence”, continue to guide our school.  The staff of Murrieta Mesa have a Relentless Belief and Unwavering Commitment to serve our students, parents and community.  We look forward to Pursuing our Passion and Continuing to Build our Legacy with our students!
    We are…Mesa!
