Don't believe the number! Moss Middle gets a lower score because the population is diverse and includes many immigrants (including refugees) from around the world. The teachers are TOP NOTCH! My children all attended there and were all challenged, despite their being gifted learners.
I am a 8th grade student here . Here at moss the teachers are very respectful and highly dedicated to their student. We have a leadership class almost like jrotc but called dlc (dragon leadership corp) and us students have learned to be more respectful . I just love this school. Our 3 goals are 1.respect2.leadership and 3.academic excellence and 3 non-negotiables which are say yes maam no maam yes sir and no sir 2. Is to stand by your chair and wait to be seated.3. Respect
Our third child started at Moss this year and, as always, we are pleased. Our older two are in college and successful - the eldest a Governor's Scholar and multiple scholarship recipient - and I've always told people that her success was largely due to the interest shown in her by Moss. From the principal to the guidance counselor to their teachers, all seemed to care about where they were headed and actively guided them toward the events, tests and activities that helped them get where they are now. We continue to benefit from the knowledge, expertise and willingness to actively guide students that typifies Moss leadership. And we are grateful for it.
