My experience with Moorpark High School has been positive. I haven't had any bad experiences with the school. The food is fine, the facility is nice, and the people are kind. It's a nice place to be enrolled, and it's a very friendly, safe environment. There are a lot of clubs, and you can even create your own club. If your club is approved, there is a club rush day where you get to promote it and advertise your club. I appreciate the many opportunities the school provides, and am proud to be a Muskateer!

Moorpark High School and the Moorpark Unified School District has provided all students and the entire community with amazing enrichment opportunities. Growing up in the district and having younger siblings go through it too has provided my family with assistance in resources, amazing after school enrichment activities, sports, and fundraisers that bring us closer to our community. With well-trained teachers and a wide selection of classes, I come to school each day excited and eager to learn.
Representing as a student from Moorpark High School provides me the pleasure to express that my high school is very welcoming and it is a school filled with opportunities. There are a ton of active clubs to choose from, as well as being a school filled with diversity. Being a senior at my high school allows me the advantage to note all the teachers are outstanding. I was the type of reserved person who didn't have the motivation to seek for help. My teachers helped me and motivated me. They are committed to helping during lunch or after school and offering their most appropriate advice to their students. The college and career center at my school constantly tries promoting colleges, universities, army and the navy to its students. There is a representative from a university or army that approaches and explains any questions that a student might be curious about. My school has taught me how to grow and i'm admired by it. I am proud to say I am a student at Moorpark High School.
