Located adjacent to Moorpark College at 15300 Monroe Avenue, Campus Canyon is a California Distinguished School. In partnership with Moorpark College, they've developed the unique College Connection Program to enhance and expand learning opportunities for students through campus visits and special programs with the college staff and students. Campus Canyon is a friendly and nurturing neighborhood school for students in transitional kindergarten through eighth grade who live within the school's boundaries or who get special permission to attend through the district office. The school focuses on strengthening academics through experienced-based, higher level learning. Beginning with its full-day transitional kindergarten program, it encourages children to continue their education and become life-long learners.


Nationally Recognized Teaching Zoo Inspires Cross-Curriculum Learning for Campus Canyon Students

Some days it's "a zoo" at Campus Canyon…that's because the students are within easy walking distance to America's Teaching Zoo at Moorpark College. The zoo, used for the college's nationally known Exotic Animal Training and Management Program, is a great place for students of all ages to learn.

Whether it's a kindergartner learning about habitats or fifth graders collecting observational data for their research papers–the zoo has become an integral part of the school's curriculum and one of the favorite walking field trips for Campus Canyon students.

Located on five acres on the campus of Moorpark College, the zoo has almost 200 different animals. This extraordinary collection includes a Bengal tiger, African lioness, camels, a spotted hyena, mountain lions, a California sea lion, a variety of primates, birds and many other exotic and endangered animals.
