At Moon Area School District, academic excellence is our priority. MASD strives to provide an educational environment offering opportunities for all students to reach their full potential, while preparing them for a future in a global society.
Consistently, Moon Area students perform above state and national averages on standardized testing. In 2011-12 school year, the District as a whole made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and five out of seven buildings achieved AYP on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) tests.
Moon Area remains committed to providing the latest state-of-the-art technology in all seven district buildings. Our technology program, places the latest desktop and laptop computers, interactive whiteboards and other electronics in a majority of district classrooms.
MASD recognizes that student interaction in activities during and afterschool hours teaches valuable lessons not available in any classroom. The district offers a wide variety of academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular options in musical, dramatic and athletic endeavors at elementary, middle school and high school levels.
A new, state-of-the-art high school opened in January 2011, while the former high school transformed into the district’s new middle school which opened in September 2012. The nearly 30-acre campus showcases new athletic fields and courts, modern auditoriums and unmatched amenities for students, staff and community members.
