Moorpark High School is a comprehensive public secondary school located in the Mountain Meadows neighborhood of Moorpark[1], California; and serves students from grades 9 through 12. It is part of the Moorpark Unified School District; and had an enrollment of 1,908 students for the 2018-19 school year.[2] The student/teacher ratio for 2017-18 was 23:1.[3] Moorpark High School is accredited through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.[4] Moorpark High School takes pupils from two main feeder middle schools: Chaparral Middle School and Mesa Verde Middle School.[5]


The school was established in 1919 as Moorpark Memorial Union High School[6]. The campus was originally located at 280 Casey Road (through the end of the 1987-1988 school year before being relocated to its current campus at 4500 Tierra Rejada Road). "Memorial" was included in the school name as a remembrance of servicemen lost during the First World War.[7]


Moorpark's baseball team has been coached by Scott Fullerton for 17 seasons. [8]

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]
