Everyday Moon offered students the opportunity to learn with phenomenal faculty in a supportive environment. Throughout my high school experience I was able to experience once in a lifetime opportunities beyond education that many schools don't get to enjoy. For example, every year the students team up with the local police and firefighters perform a mock crash to show the effects of drunk driving. My junior year of high school, the entire student body and faculty spent an hour walking outside and enjoying donated ice cream to help end bullying by "Melting away the hate." During the Holiday season my senior year of high school, Peer to Peer students gave away free hot chocolate at lunch to spread some holiday cheer. Moon goes above and beyond their stellar education to make sure students leave as well rounded adults. I have taken advantage of all these opportunities through my 4 high school years, and I have Moon to credit for all of my academic and personal success.

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.
Overall, the facility was very nice. I am grateful to have been able to attend this school. The majority of the teachers who I had were competent, reasonable, and fairly passionate about their subject. Though there were some exceptions, I was able to get myself through these classes with a little bit of extra work. I am also grateful for the many clubs and extracurricular activities that I was able to get deeply involved in during my time at MAHS. National Honor Society, jazz band, marching band, and Women in STEM Club were a few of my favorite groups to which I belonged.
