The Candia Moore school is fantastic! It's a K-* school that is dedicated to the success of ALL students. They are focused on small classes (19 max); this is supported at every level, thru the School Board. Students start with full time kindergarten so they build a very strong foundation for their educational career. All students enjoy Music, Art, Library/media, Minds in Motion and Gym. For a small school the technology is incredible. All 7th & 8th graders received ChromeBooks on the 1st day of school! There are more than 200 iPads in a school with 400 students. The teachers & staff are well trained in the use of technology which is designed as a tool to build on educational success. The new Math and Language programs are great. With the new Math In Focus program, which is used throughout the school, kids that feared Math are now excelling! And the Language program is ensuring that all kids are reading on level by grade 3. Test scores are some of the top in the state. The kids love school and are excited to go everyday. If you are looking for a community that is dedicated to the success of all, then choose Candia. It's a great place to call home.

As a parent of a 2nd and 3rd grader I have seen first hand the quality education provided by the teachers and administrators in the Moore School. The small size has proved to be a great asset to our children. There are less than 40 kids in the second grade and less than 80 in the third grade. The school maintains a commitment to small class size (less than 20 per class). The PTO is crazy strong and I cannot say enough great things about how involved they are in the school. Their vigilant and creative fund raising has provided field trips, an artist in residence, a playground, movie night, just to name a few. I was nervous about initially enrolling in a small school, but based on our experiences I would NEVER consider putting my children anywhere else.

This is a good school for grades 1-5. Other than some space issues (which may soon be addressed)I would recommend it for anyone with children within this age range. For middle school kids, this school is lacking in many ways from lack of programs, good teachers and extra curricular activites to name a few.

This is our first experience with the Moore School but it has been tremendous. The Kindergarden program offers something for all ability levels & challenges the children to use the resources available to them in order to succeed. I do believe there are too many specials per week, meaning: Art, Music, Library, Gym and Spanish. I do not think any of these should be eliminated but twice/week out of the classroom should be enough given the short amount of time the kids are at school( whether it's AM or PM session). Being able to help out within the classroom has given me a better idea of how the kids handle the specials and they do love it, but after seeing how they also handle being in the classroom without having to rush to get to another location-well, they seem to get more from the day. Overall, this first year has been wonderful.
