My daughter attended Mooreland Hill School from 5th through 8th, and will attend again in the fall for 9th grade. It is a great school and provides students a well rounded experience. In addition to academics, students are involved in sports, the school musical, chore groups, camping and other learning experiences. The advisor system really helps keep sudents, their families and the school connected. Mooreland is a small school so you feel like you are a part of a family rather than a school.

We love this school! The faculty is attentive and takes the time to really get to know the students. It's a small enough school to foster a family atmosphere and the staff and faculty are very approachable, Each child is able to learn at their own pace and although the expectations are high, every child is provided lots of support. We like the family game nights and all school field trips!

Outstanding faculty that really care about each individual student - definitely a 'whole child' approach, which is especially important during those middle school years. Academically challenging, small enough to tailor ciriculum to individual students when needed, strong parent organization - my sons maturity and confidence has soared!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
