I so much enjoyed the story about "rock and roll" high school. What a great story. I applaude you!

I remember the days of the 'ol "Rock n Roll Highschool". Farrow was a great teacher, he gave the students ownership of their education. I credit Monte Vista and many of their teachers and counselors with my eventual choice of career in the motion picture industry as Sr. VP of MGM International... In my opinion, Monte Vista was the best High School in the country in the 70's!

Journey played a couple of times betweem 1973 and 1976. It was a great time!

Credit goes to Chet Farrow for putting me in front of the TV at the Rainbow Studio at MV in 80/81. Last week I did a spot for ABC with GMA's Tory Johnson..everyone said I was a natural..I smiled and remembered my days at MVHS! Thanks Chet!!
