Moorpark Unified School District Reviews
The Moorpark Unified School District has many strengths in its academics, teachers, and administration. While not all of the teachers in this district seem to be all too qualified for the position, there are many teachers in this district who feel as though they want to make a difference in the children's lives that they are influencing. They offer many opportunities for students who want to go the extra mile and excel in their academic studies, and their administrators are great at helping them along the way. That being said, there are a few instances where the district falls flat on its face. The food at these schools is rather poor, and while it's understandable, as there are many mouths to feed, most of this food is packaged and filled with preservatives, making for a rather unhealthy lunch. Additionally, the clubs seem to lack resources and encouragement, to the point where they're forgettable. Despite its shortcomings, MUSD is a decent place to enroll your student.
I would say that my experience with the school district has been very good in some areas, but rather lackluster in others. As a sophomore in high school, I personally look at the academics and college readiness categories when it comes to levels of importance. The high school does a great job with this, with a specific room and counselor for any college needs. The academic category is pretty great as well, although my other students and I have had quite a few issues with the math department. Overall my main issue is the school's choice in funding. Many times they look to funding the football program for unnecessary items, whilst not looking to help programs like water polo afford a pool to play in. They also neglect the amount of money spent on food, which leads to many unhealthy alternatives. I also wish the school would make a greater effort to unite the students as one school, rather than different classes. It would make the four years we have in high school way more enjoyable.
Moorpark Unified School district is a pretty good district. They keep everything organized and really do think about the students. They are extremely social and detail oriented and always do their best job. The schools in this district are very good school, producing kind and thoughtful students and adults. Moorpark Unified really tries to make sure every pathway, the arts, sports, science, etc, available to every student and we really appreciate that. Moorpark truly has an outstanding district.
