Some teachers are good, some not so good. The good teachers (like Willingham, Carrol, or Exner) kept my daughter engaged and actually stood up in front of the class and walk around the class as they instruct. Some of the other teachers just sit at their desks and say nothing to the students on most days. They taught the kids to have a routine in the first two weeks of the year then sat down. One of the teachers is out of school frequently, but think it's ok to give bad grades on assignments due the days that she was out. I highly recommend any parent to enforce an open line of communication with all teachers at this school. They have a lot of work to do...I won't deny that fact. If you don't maintain the communication, your child WILL fall between the cracks and FAIL because the not so good teachers who sit at their desks and say nothing will continue to do just that...NOTHING. If anything look into other school options.

I love this school. My son had the pleasure of attending there. The teachers are so great! My son adored his third grade teacher, Mrs. Bassett. She spent time with him and was great at helping us get on track. Thanks to this school and all it has done. Love It!!!

This school has continued to have low teacher child ratios even in tough times. Kindergarten classes have 16-19 students. They offer so much support for struggling students and enrichment for gifted students. Fantastic community support that seems to be growing.

This school is above par and are devoted to the education of the children. I understand budget cuts but it is still difficult to supply our children with their school supplies. Often, my child has come home crying because they didn't have something they needed.

"Working together to be our best, Growing and learning is our quest" is the mission statement recited daily at Moreland Elementary. It's a great place for students, parents & staff! Not only does the school day offer quality instruction with rigor and high expectations delivered by a highly qualified, creative & nuturing staff, it also offers extra activities such as Girl Power, M-Troop, EIP after school lab, Math Study groups, Academic Bowl, Art Club, Track, Chorus, K-Kids, Wildcat Assistants, 4H, SAFE program, Movie Night (PTO), Reading Night (PTO), & Stevi B's Night. Moreland is the complete package. In the six years my son has attended MES, there has never been a day that he has not wanted to attend. We are very proud to be a Moreland Wildcat!

I have three children that has attended MES, and one that is still there. My first two had a decent elementary school experience, but the one that is still there struggles constantly with reading. I have all but been told that there is nothing more that can be done to help my child. I am very disapointed with the decision that this school has made regarding my child. He needs extra help, and they won't give it to him. I would not recommend anyone send there child there if this is how they treat struggling students.

Moreland Elem School continues to have a loving, caring community feeling. The principal & many teachers & workers live in this community & seem to know all their children & their families. Every AM teachers are outside helping children out of vehicles, walking them to the door, holding umbrellas if needed, & the same TLC is there in the afternoons when their ride comes. The food is good, & parents & grandparents are encouraged to have lunch with their child now & then. Pre-K & Kindergarten teachers encourage parents & grandparents to come & read to their classes. It is just such a positive, warm, loving place, one feels good just being there.

I have one child attending MES and another that has just left for middle school. I think you can be as involved as you or your child would like to be. We have to monitor our children's activities to make sure they are not over extended. My wife and I have never been dissappointed with any of our children's teachers. The mix of socioeconomic backgrounds (from blue collar to affluent) helps to give them the exposure to deal with the real world later in life.

This is a community school, and the best aspects are apparent as you become acquainted with the teachers, parents, and students. I am constantly impressed with the school's welcoming atmosphere and willingness to involve those interested in serving as volunteers, mentors, or readers. In addition, the faculty and staff are genuinely interested in the students' academic and individual non-academic needs.

My child currently attends Moreland Elementary and loves the teachers and Principal. I agree that the PTO program does little to accommodate parents who work outside of the home. The meetings are held during or right after school when many parents are still at work. I realize that it is difficult to get many parents involved, but if the activities were accommodating to work hours, more parents might get involved. On a more positive note, I can say that for 3 of the past 5 years, my child has had teachers that went WAY beyond the call of duty regarding personal attention to ensure that learning and development are the mainstay of the curriculum. I continuously tell everyone that this is THE best school.

The quality of academia has faltered this year for my child. Her teacher is absent more than she is there. No explanation to the parents. Just constant substitute teachers. Extracurricular activities aren't readily available. Parent involvement is offered only to the people who don't have public jobs. A PTO or PTA is not offered for working parents.

As a former parent of two who attended MES and a current teacher at the school I can highly recommend both the academic program and the extra curricular activities. The administrative staff along with the teaching staff have a genuine concern for the academic and personal welfare of all students. The educators work well together to assure that the curriculum is challenging while still meeting the needs of all our students. If you are seeking a well rounded education from very caring educators you could not find a better school.

Academic programs are good. The availability of extracurricular activities are almost not existent for a child with working parents. The school does not have a PTO that is available for working parents.

Great qualities include the personal relationships administration and the teachers have with the families who attend Moreland. However, if you desire a challenging and stimulating curriculum, high expectations for teachers and a desire to increase student achievement, you have come to the wrong place. If you want a run of the mill, happy to just be average school, this is your place to be.

Moreland Elementary is the best school all around. My daughter attends Moreland Elementary, her teachers are caring and truly love the children. Parents enjoy being involved because everyone has the same goal at heart, our children. I could not recommend a better school for any child.We Love Moreland Elementary!

I personally attended this school when I was young as so my brother does now, and now I am attending West GA and I am majoring in education. I hope to teach at this school because the teachers are great and the principal is so involved. There are many programs such as REACH for advanced children, and Accelerated Reader for the readers. There is the chorus, and the art and music progrms are excellent. I hope that my future children get to attend this school.

Both of my children have attended Moreland Elementary. My daughter, now 20 years old, attends University of Georgia and my son is in 6th grade. The staff at this school is excellent. The principal is very involved in every aspect of the school. She know all the students personally and works in every area of the school. On any given day, a person can see her directing traffic or working in the cafeteria. She is always understanding of the parents needs. All of the teachers are great as well. My children excelled under the expert teachers at this school.
