It has tons of opportunity with the health science program as well as the engineering program. The teachers help you get jobs after you graduate and really good jobs at that! Do you work, focus on studies and future and they’ll map out a clear path for a successful career. The athletics are good as well and the coaches are great as well as most staff. I enjoyed attending this high school.

I have attended Moody High School for four years and have experienced so many great opportunities in clubs and organizations. It is a very welcoming and warming campus with wonderful faculty and staff treat every student that walks through the doors with compassion!
I loved my 4 years at Moody. The school spirit was amazing and all of my teachers were caring, insightful, and prepared me for college. The only thing I would change is the facilities, much of the school is old and deteriorating . I like the old, collegiate feel, but it has not been kept up and maintained the way it should be (chairs falling apart and drawers falling apart). That being said, the academics were challenging and diverse so I never took a class I didn't want to or wasn't interested in. oh, and the principle and counslors are AMAZING!
