    Health & Safety: Our school has a very strict anti-bullying policy. Many signs and pictures are posted around campus that really make students reflect about those around them. Our school is very aware of what is going on in the world around them. I feel mostly safe at the school ever since the several lockdowns that have occurred in the past. The school has always reached out to those affected by the lockdowns and awareness months to make sure students talk about how they feel.

    Extracurriculars: Moorpark High offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities. There is a huge selection for everybody and someone is very likely to find a club or several clubs that they would like to join. The clubs also will interact with one another as well. Many clubs help others outside of the school and raise money to benefit many organizations. The clubs will also go on field trips to broaden their horizons outside of campus.

    Overall Experience: Moorpark High has given me the best 4 years of my life by far. I have made more friends than I could've ever imagined. From the football games to the rallies, everyone was a whole student body and would represent the school very well. I would never want to attend a different school if I was given the chance because al the people that have come into my life were meant to be there for a reason and I would never want that to change.

    Teachers: Throughout these past 4 years, every single one of my teachers will be someone who has affected my life in a positive and memorable way. I will look back and remember each teacher I ever had and the way they each uniquely helped me throughout high school. All my teachers made me more knowledgable of the subject they were teaching and affectively got their thought across through their teaching styles.

    Teachers: It's very rare when you find a teacher that actually cares and will take time out of their day to help students that are in need. A lot of teachers give notes the whole period so students start to zone out fairly quickly and teachers don't really engage with students.
