    Health & Safety: Never worry about personal safety while at Moorpark High School. Not only are there always teachers around, but the students at the school are also very nice and cooperative, and they hardly ever partake in activities such as bullying. Health programs help students with special needs out to a great extent, so there is never a concern about that if you are a parent. Just like the town, the school is incredibly safe.

    Food: Food accommodations and varieties are really only there for upperclassmen (juniors and seniors) because they are the only students who are allowed off-campus during the lunch hour to go and get food at the various stores. There isn't much of a variety for underclassmen besides the options of bringing their own lunches or buying lunch from the school.

    Administration & Policies: School-wide and administration policies in the district and school are fair and greatly enforced. Involvement and helpfulness from the principal, counselors, and other staff are prominent, but hardly ever happen as MHS is a very safe school.

    Sports & Fitness: Moorpark High School varsity football games are perhaps the most attended events of the year in all of Moorpark. MHS Varsity football spirit cannot be topped by any school.
