Student, Vista Murrieta High School, Class of 2016,
The most popular extracurricular activities are sports (primarily football), marching band, and Interact club. Personally, I would recommend marching band since as a member for 4 years, I would do it all over again. Our head director Mr. Wade cares so much about the students in the program that not only does he practically live in the PAC but his four children do as well. Although we spend crazy hours at school to perfect our show, we learn not only performance excellence but perseverance and dedication. The family bond we have among nearly 300 people is unbreakable and we even have close ties with alumni who have graduated from before I attended school. I would recommend to join marching band because unlike sports where someone who is untalented is simply rejected; we urge every member to become the best they can be.
