    Overall Experience: I wish this high school had more spirit and a sense of community. While most of my teachers were great, I had the unfortunate luck of getting terrible ones too.

    Overall Experience: I wish Moorpark High School had a larger selection and a variety of classes avail able to the students. The students aren't as involved and don't show as much school spirit as I liked, but it's a great school overall!

    Overall Experience: It's alright. It's better than most schools, at least that's what the transfer students say. Personally I think the school is a bit too secular, but they are a little more tolerant than I expected. They could improve on a lot of things - as most students can agree - but overall it's not bad. I'm glad I finally graduated from this school, but I don't think I would mind doing it over.

    Overall Experience: I'm in HSA at the high school, it is usually a really close group, so it's easy to make friends, and the teachers are really great. There is a ton of respect and understanding from the teachers in the Health Science Academy. Outside of HSA, it can be a little hard at times, quite a few of the teachers lack respect, but over all if I could do high school all over again, I would choose this school again, especially since it's close to home.
