I just graduated from Murrieta Valley and I loved my four years there. Granted it wasn't always a walk in the park but the teacher care, especially the advanced teachers. I always felt safe and never saw any racial tension. The clubs and everything were great and all I can say is if you don't get involved ...  Read more
