This school is a wonderful school for all kinds of kids, my son in particular is shy, and he comes home everyday letting me know how nice the teachers are and the kids who go there. This is only our first year in this school and I hope all continues to go well. In a couple of years my daughter will also be attending this same school, mean while we will finish up in a private all girls school that just didn't work out as well as it should.
Good staff, but the classes are fairly large. The education feels brusque, and it's difficult to get motivated. I'm transferring to the high school at Moorpark College instead. However, if you're into the high school social aspects, it'll probably suit you better. Otherwise, you're in for four years you'll probably hate.
Moorpark high school has done wonders to students and its a pleasure my son is part of this academy.
The Principal and Teachers are great! Always available to help before school, lunch and after school. The teachers motivate the kids to really help them reach their learning potential. We also have so many great programs and clubs for envolvement for everyone to have great school spirit.
Amazing principal, terrific core academics with dedication to both AP classes and ELC. Love the band/music program. Feel like both my high-achieving kids got a stellar public education.
Moorpark high school not only has an excellent academic program with caring teachers, but also has a band program that is truly magnificent.
Moorpark has a great team of administrator, teachers, parents and students. They have won the nationral decathalon several times. It's a small school district, the teachers are dedicated and everyone works as a team
MPHS is an excellent school with wonderful, caring and very dedicated teachers. MPHS has a constantly growing variety of extracurricular activities, clubs, dance, band, Acca Decca and sports for the students to become involved in. There is something for every child. The parental and community support is unmatched! This school serves your child if they are Gifted and if they have special needs. By a parent of 4 students- Past, Present and Future- Peggy
Great academic program wonderful teachers and councelors. A great variety of extracurricular activities like music, chorus, bands variety of competitive sports. Parents are extremely involved in raising money for the school and with their kids education programs/
Good school overall. I felt it prepared me for college and most of the faculty did a great job.
Moorpark High was a terrific school, up and coming with a dedicated staff that worked very hard to give students opportunities to express themselves. We had two children that attended MHS and both had a rich experience beyond basic classes: one lettered in football, basketball and golf. The other did field trips in astronomy and was on the school's first Academic Decathalon team (county winners; a later team won the national championship). Both got what they wanted. Good ethnic diversity. Parent participation in the school and in local activities (Scouts, Little League) is extremely high and active. Great school, great community to raise children.
