Moulton is the kind of school a parent dreams of finding for their child. Just walk in the front door, and the friendliest, most helpful office staff ever greets you with warm smiles. The principal is always welcoming, loves the kids and is especially open to new, innovative ideas to improve the school. The teachers, well, as a teacher myself, I know how hard it is to find such professional, dedicated and caring individuals who sole goal is to educate each and every child to their utmost potential while making learning interesting! Finally, Moulton has an unparalled PTA with a roster of superstars. The PTA parents have written grants to bring in money, hired out special teachers to go above and beyond average instruction, created musical and artistic programs that showcase the children's talent and inspire goals in them that often get realized, and so so much more. There is a technology-based level of instruction at Moulton that only exists because of dedication, hard work and learning by parents, teachers, and administrators alike. Not many schools can offer so much to children based on the community's sheer desire to do what is best for the kids when so little funding is actually provided by the state. Finally, the students at Moulton are incredible. They want to learn. Many come before school either to tutor other children or to be tutored - all just for community service. Students light up when you tell them that there is an opportunity for them to represent their school and learn more. In fact, recently a group of Moulton students won 1st place in the state of California for a creativity competition which included logical puzzle solving, improvisation and team work. These kids shined and Moulton celebrated them with a great big assembly. The students are kind, responsible and motivated. We are proud of our school and hope that this reward can provide a means of thanking this terrific school!
