I believe the school is only as strong as the principal who runs it, the staff that teaches from it, the students who attend it and the parents who are an active part of it. T E A M Work, Makes the dream work. T=Time/ In and out of school helping our children E= Effort - Giving the best we have to give. A=Access- Parent's having access to teacher's and teacher's having access to parents. M=Money - Take advantage of donation opportunities. then will see the results we expect. Remember don't complain about what your not willing to change!

I see where the Principle as well as the Vice Principle are trying to get more involved with parents as well as students to encourage not only a better school to learn in, but a better enviorment to learn in. Overall i believe it is up to the PARENTS to help encourage their kids to be the best they can be in school as well as life.

DONT GO TO MOYER EVER........The teachers are so unorganizied,and dont comunicate with parents at all....not onlt that but behavior wise the school is terrible,always fights and drama..parents and students i strongly advise that you dont go moyer academy ....IT NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN !!!!!! -signed a former MJM student


Posted June 13, 2011

This school needs to be closed. Staff is as bad as the children. No control in this school, worst decision I could have made to send my children here. If you really care about the quality of education your child receives then choose another school.

Maurice J. Moyer Academy was out of control. The staff was very unprofessional and the principal was unable tomanage his staff.

moyer academy is an ok-great school. it helps the kids including me realize why we are here today. It's because we dont have any where else to go. MJM takes in students form all over the state of Delaware and strive to help them succeed. It isn't up to the school to get their act together, it's the students. Teaches are wondeful and can only take so much. To the parents on this blog if it's the 'worst' school ever than remove your child and you won't have to worry about the 'mess' or 'ineffective' staff. I can tell you this, MJM changed my life and made me a better person. Think about what you say or how you judge something before you attend the their presence.

The teachers that have teached in MJM over the past 3 years are effective and professional with their students and parents. This school thrives on helping childern to get there life back on track and to enhance their skills for higher learning. I regret that some parents think MJM is a joke, but if they are not satisfied, Move on and I hope your child better in the next school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
