My experience at Moon Area High School has been one to always remember! There is such a wide variety to participate in. In addition, our athletic program are very advanced. I am a senior, varsity softball player who has viewed not only our program but all of the other athletic programs develop over the years. Our school is full of individuals that contain the drive and aspiration to becoming involved. Whether you choose to participate in a sport, a club, attend debates, provide community service, participate in the band or musicals, or simply live life in a fulfilling way, you are giving back to our community. The safe environment, the excellence in academics, and the resources provided for all necessary programs creates a beautiful experience. Approaching graduation and leaving my town behind, I am proud to say this suburb will always have a special place in my heart.

I moved to PA in my sophomore year, and I decided to attend Moon High School. The people instantly welcomed me into the community, and I was captivated by their kindness. I've made more friends than I had ever done anywhere else. I went to my very first football game, to my very first marching band competition, my very first musical. This school has open up parts of me and my interests I’ve never known before. This year, my senior year, I joined the stage crew for the musical, I went to almost every home football games with a group of friends I trust, participate in charities for my medical club, and attend the annual marching band competition to support my close friends. Moon Area High School indeed change my life into a more positive path, and I am grateful for it.
I went to 3 different high schools and this one was by far the best! The teachers engage students by using real life examples and explaining, in detail, why the material they are teaching is important to our future careers. They are extremely knowledgable, enabling them to answer virtually any questions students may have. They are also available at the students request, providing students with the the knowledge they need to succeed within the school community. Their grading is extremely fair and consistent, as they make students work to earn the grades they received, but also provide opportunities to better your grade if you are not satisfied.
