Having graduated from Moberly just over 10 years ago I have to say I am proud of everything Moberly's schools have to offer. It is very diverse yet there is a great opportunity for every kid to learn in a way that best suits them. I spent most of my life considered an "ask risk" student but thanks to the persistent dedication of the staff in Moberly I am succeeding at life and I owe so much to them. The teachers and staff are amazingly friendly and professional. I am very proud to be a Spartan.

Terrible school. Has really gone down hill since I attended Moberly public schools back in the 80's. The teachers care very little for the students, and the studens are very rarely inspired to learn. I would suggest seriously that any new parents consider private or home school before enrolling their child. Some teachers do a wonderful job, while others just let their student's education suffer, but are allowed to remain on staff because of tenure.

We moved from Columbia to Moberly when our child was in 7th grade and did not have a good experience with Moberly Middle school. We have a child who nearly failed some of his middle school classes, yet scored in the 95%tile on standardized test and in advanced range on the MAP. Our child was very unhappy with his team of teachers and was not challenged at all. Our child is currently in Moberly High school and is happy and doing well. We are glad he survived his time at Moberly Middle school.

As a former student of MMS (only five years ago, in fact), I know that it is a very good school. The band program is excellent and the academics are strong. Perhaps the substitute teacher who posted the comment previously simply cannot control classes of younger adolescents and could not agree with the faculty. I feel that MMS is one of the better middle schools in the area.

I have substituted at this school and the institution will have to make great changes before I send my child to this school. Unfortunately attitudes and morale of the faculty wasn't great and the students discipline problems really stood in the way of getting anything accomplished.
