Moon Area School District does a phenomenal job of ensuring its students' safety. Multiple police officers as well as security guards are constantly doing rounds around the building. They're extremely friendly while being extensively vigilant. Moon also cares deeply about having well funded academics in every area of interest. Our music program is nationally recognized with students competing at state and even national level competitions. Our art programs are well funded with the best art supplies and numerous different style art classes available. The basic academics such as math, science, English, and history are all also extremely well funded with numerous resources.

What I liked about Moon Area School district is how much school pride the athletes had in each individual sport. Pretty much all the students came together to support each other in their games and matches. Students would watch football games on Friday nights, cheer in the basketball team, support the volleyball ball matches and sit in the stands for the swimmers. What I liked about Moon also is that the teachers found fun and interactive ways to teach materials to us. For example the day before a test, the history teachers would host review games to prepare us for the upcoming test. Some parts of Moon I liked and enjoyed but I think the school could change how strict the rules and guidelines are. Teachers are really strict with cell phone policies on the students, but when the teachers are allowed to go on their phone when they should be teaching. Even though Moon has its strict rules, I still enjoyed my 4 years of high school here.
I enjoyed attending Moon because the teachers are very qualified in their areas of expertise. They are committed to helping students succeed and would take extra time out of their day to tutor or assist students with specific difficulties. I also enjoyed Moon's unrelenting school spirit. No matter how bad the football team played, students come out every Friday night in hoards to cheer for our peers. Moon Area also provides a very wide variety of choice in courses. Students are offered many classes oriented to their future plans, and we are able to sample different subjects such as journalism, accounting, photography, public speaking, or psychology. My time at Moon Are High School has been very lucrative in helping me succeed and choose what career I would like to pursue.
