It is a beautiful school. Teachers are excellent. Students are working hard. Need to have plan for trips to DC for 8th Graders. It is an experience of a life time. We need to have more parent involvements.
My children have been at Mossdale for the 6 years it has been open. I specifically moved to this area so my kids could go here. The staff has been nothing but supportive and caring towards students and parents. The teachers go above and beyond to reach their students. I see the dedication in their jobs by all the extra UNPAID time they devote to their students. I am realistic in the fact that much of what is taught in schools is dictated by the district, and ultimately the state, as there are standards that have to be met. The few negative comments or attitudes toward the school/teachers have been from parents who don't take responsibility for their children's behaviors and place blame on everyone else. Teachers still manage to reach their students through the time constraints, unsupportive parents, struggling students, lack of educational funding and state testing. They go above and beyond what is required of them on a daily basis. I am so impressed by the teachers and staff, and feel blessed my children go to Mossdale!
Mossdale may have great test scores, but they are horrible when in comes to a welcoming learning environment for the students. They pretty much only do book work there is few chances for hands on learning. I was so excited to start off my sons schooling here and have been more and more disappointed over the last 3 years. So much so that this will be my sons last year at Mossdale School! I advise any parents looking into Mossdale to look long and hard. Even the teachers seem to dislike their jobs. I have 3 of the teachers on my Facebook account and the write status updates on a daily basis of dislike. They seem to be on Facebook more than engaging with the students.
Great school. The teachers and staff are great. They have been improving every day. I am happy with the teaching level and care that has been given to individual students.
The best place for education in lathrop.The teachers are very patient and good educators .
Great job! API is increased again! My son is in the 4th grade and he got a lot of homework to do everyday, the good thing about homework is that the teacher cares about the kids' study. Cong' s! Even my kid is not doing good last year, I still feel happy about this school. Next year my little one will be in Kingdergarden and I hope the school will be better and better and my kids will do better and better!
This is a FANTASTIC school! We have 2 children who have always been honor students. We have been with the school since they first opened about 3 years ago. I am so impressed with this school, the teachers are excellent and staff is warm and friendly. I am very impressed with the principal she is on top as far as educationally focused and still so wonderful with the parents and children! The school is new, the campus is laid out beautifully and the classrooms are so high tech! You couldn't ask for a better school environment or nieghborhood safety wise either. As a military wife (living all over the world) , a mom and past teacher myself I have a lot of experience in many areas relating to this.. I would give Mossdale A++! Most people pay for thier children to attend a school of this quality. - Bravo
My son has had a great two year run at Mossdale and now it's my daughter's turn to enter the school. I would love to see more tearch and parent volunteers at school functions though.
Mossdale is the best school my children have ever attended. Mrs. Meydam is a great forth grade teacher.
Mossdale is a great school. This is my first year there and we have only been there since late September. My son has definitely had more challenging homework than his other school and he really likes it there. The school is very diverse and the staff is very friendly. The only thing that concerns me is that I feel the school lacks security considering it goes up to 8th grade. Often times, the little ones are mixed in with the older kids, yikes!
This school is very good for parents as well as the children. I have been satisified with the open door policy. The principal is more than willing to speak to parents about their children. This is my first year and I look forward to a long realtionship with Mossdale for all three of my young children.
