If you are looking for quality education in Huntington Beach, then Moffett Elementary is the best school in town! Beginning with their Principal, who has very high standards when it comes to educational team she has created at Moffett as well as the practices she sets for the children to achieve. The parent community is warm and welcoming with a strong PTA presence on campus. Moffett has a great arts program with varied music instruction. The school has top-notch test scores and a great computer lab. It is too bad someone chose to use this forum to air their obvious personal issue with the principal. There is always the freedom to chose another school in the school district.
Moffet is a great school. The teachers & staff are wonderful . The only complaint is the principal. Too bad the school has a horrible principal.
2 of my kids went all the way through Moffet, and I had a 2nd grader. We are unfortunately moving and leaving this school will be hard. They have had great teachers with very appropriate curriculium. The parent involvement is phenominal!! Best in district. It really feels like a family. The large class sizes is not the school's fault, it is the district's poor budgeting planning. But the teachers there manage the class sizes extremely well. Office staff is amazing. We will really miss this school.
Moffet is a wonderful school where teachers and parents work collaboratively. I love all of the family nights the school puts on every year. I only wish the school would provide free or low-cost before and afterschool care. I think the YMCA is very expensive and there is not enough supervision.
Excellent school, wonderful teachers, and dedicated parents! Only complaint...I don't like the different bell schedules. This is very inconvenient for parents! Other districts dismiss all grades at the same time.
Moffett is a great school with a wonderful staff. I would like to see more hands on programs for the children though.I would also like to see a bigger request for parent involvement.
I heartily agree that the teaching and administrative staff I've encountered at Moffett has been exceptional. It's been quite a while since I was in third grade, but my daughter appears to be sufficiently challenged by the curriculum without being overwhelmed. My only criticism would be the class size - certainly 31 kids in a classroom isn't the most effective environment to keep them focussed on learning, I must say that my daughter's teacher handles the crowded room like a pro. We plan on sticking with Moffett - three more years to go!
the quality of education my child has attained, has been priceless, in terms of bettering her future. the patience and care each teacher gives is beyond words. My thanks and gratitude goes out to all at Moffett(S.A.)Elementary School
My daughter has attended Moffett since Kindergaten and is currently wrapping up her last couple of weeks in third grade. In the several years she has attended Moffett, I have never been disappointed with the teachers she has had. The teaching staff truly cares about their students and exercises care and concern in their dealings with their students. The parent communtity is certainly active and they certainly get involved in all aspects of school, during and after hours (from chaperoning field trips to helping at fund raisers). The curriculum seems to be grade appropriate and appears to be adequately challenging for the average student.
