Moorpark High School is a public high school in Moorpark, California, in the Moorpark Unified School District and currently[when?] has an enrollment of 2,059 students.

History

Moorpark High School was originally in Old Moorpark, on the current Walnut Canyon Elementary Campus. The current campus opened to students in the 1988-1989 school year and is at the 4500 block of Tierra Rejada St., Moorpark, California. In its early years, it lacked a football field and an auditorium and contained only half of the classrooms it has today.[citation needed]

Moorpark High school has two chief feeder schools: Chaparral Middle School and Mesa Verde Middle School.

Athletics

Moorpark's baseball team has been coached by Scott Fullerton for 17 seasons. [1]

With rising enrollment, Moorpark athletics moved into the Marmonte League the year after beating Carpinteria, where it remained until the creation of the Coastal Canyon League. The school's biggest sport has been football. In 2005, Moorpark went to its first Division IV Championship game, losing to St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 27-7. A year later, Moorpark came back and lost in the first ever CIF North Division Championship to eventual state champion Canyon Country Cowboys, 24-22. In 2008, the team went undefeated in the Marmonte League for the first time in the school's history and posted a 14-2 overall record after losing to St. Bonaventure again in the CIF Northern Division Championship Game, 42-7. The following year, Moorpark again made it to the CIF Northern Division Championship Game but lost to Marmonte rival Westlake in a 14-10 thriller and posted another 14-2 overall record.

Their track and field team won the Marmonte League championships in both 2004 and 2005 under the guidance and conditioning of coaches Case, Rohach, and Thomas (Thomas has left Moorpark High 2007). The girls track and field also won again in 2007.[citation needed]

A new multimillion-dollar gym was added in 2005.

The girl's varsity soccer team won 2nd place in CIF in 2007/2008.[citation needed]

Affiliates

Moorpark High School has 2 affiliate schools. The first is the Community High School, a newer campus ("C School") that educates students not on track (for lack of credits) to graduate by assigning fewer classes to help make up lost and/or a deficiency in credits required for graduation. The second is The High School at Moorpark College, where students seeking to expand their education may opt to take college courses that fulfill both high school graduation credits as well as earn college credit. Although not affiliated with the High School, some students elect to take the California High School Proficiency Exam or CHSPE, thereby graduating from high school, and take classes at Moorpark College for straight-up college credit.
