Vista Murrieta High School (VMHS) is a comprehensive, four-year high school located in Murrieta, California. It is operated by the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. It opened in August 2003, relieving the overcrowding at Murrieta Valley High School, which had been the district's only comprehensive high school until that time. During the 2016-2017 school year, the school served over 3,500 students. The campus sits on 68 acres (280,000 m2)[2] overlooking most of the City of Murrieta to the south.

VMHS is a four-year comprehensive high school accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (as of 2006).

This school was named "the most spirited school in the nation" from on March 31, 2009, as well as 2010.[3] It was awarded the same title from for the 2015-2016 school year.[4] It is now a California Distinguished School.
