Overall, my experience at Moon has been great! The sports, and academics have been great and the student body is willing to learn and support each other. The teachers care about you and administration is always looking to improve the school.

Most of the teachers here are phenomenal and the school is beautiful. The classes challenge you, but at times can get overwhelming if you’re a student who takes multiple AP/CHS/honors classes. I’m very privileged to go here, but there are only a few things I don’t sit well with in the rules (targeted dress code, very little creativity-involved activities, and the new inability to drop school courses that you find are too challenging [if you sign up, you’re in it].) As a junior with a sister in college, I have observed that the work ethic, self discipline, and challenging courses prepare a student for college very well and I am very grateful to receive education from a school such as Moon.
My experience on attending Moon Area High is amazing in many ways because Moon High School haven’t given me anything to complain about. Teachers, parents, principles, students, staff are very well connected we all communicate very well and stay in touch with everything that goes on with the school. We also have many opportunities in school with all the different classes we have like cooking, practical justice, also psychology classes which gives us opportunities on our career choice to learn about some of the things they would teach us in college in school. Moon is a very great school, very disciplined and also friendly makes everyone feel very comfortable and safe and does everything they can to do so.
