The desire to learn is universal.

Thoughtful hard work shifts anything.

Learning for life.

Respect everyone, fear no one.

Our Mission is to empower young people for a life of learning both satisfying to themselves and of significant value to others.

Matthew Moss High School is a different kind of school; it is different because it is absolutely focused on developing your child so that when they leave us they are ready for the world and able to create happy, successful and productive lives for themselves.

In order for this to happen, young people need three things from their schooling; knowledge, skills and a real sense of direction about their next steps. Many schools focus on servicing only the first need. At Matthew Moss we provide an educational experience which provides all three.
