      All my kids have gone to Moore. I dont know who your having a problem with,but this is the best school. My children have been challenged and taught well here. The staff is far from cold and works hard to keep the kids on task. Sometimes if we check ourselves and our attitude, then things get better. There is also high parent envolement and satisfaction. No school is perfect,but Moore is truly the BEST!!! JUST ASK THE PARENTS!!!!

    My son is eleven now. He went to Moore Elementary years 2006-2012. A good while…. I know. However, I was most certainly satisfied by the way the school taught the children and conducted business with faculty, students, and parents. Moore is completely different from where my son has been going for a year! Overall, I would advise another parent(s) to consider their child(ren) to attend Moore Magnet.
