I love May Moore from the first day my daughter started KG how scared I was but from the first smile from the principal and the love I saw from all the teachers I felt comfortable with leaving her The staff is amazing loving caring, with my second child attending may Moore Now I know he is in good hands. Such a great environment to be in every child feels special And it really is the "place to be". I am also happy with how my children are reading May Moore makes learning fun the kids love going to school and my oldest loves to return and read to the younger kids.

This school is great. I love it here. The majority of the staff are loving, caring and true educators. There are less then a handful of staff which are not, but frankly, I guess nothing is perfect.

Great teachers and Principal. Integrated classrooms, high level of technology integration for modern children, lots of activities in and out of classrooms. Playground and school are in a good location for class tours and surrounded by houses! My two children are both very happy learners there.

OMG! I LOVE this school! Everyone greets you with a smile, the school is immaculate and the administration is so caring! I have 2 kids at May Moore. Their teachers have been EXCELLENT (I am a fellow teacher!) and really go beyond the expected. I am EXTREMELY pleased with the education my children are receiving at May Moore!

my son went to May Moore for 3 yrs and it is the best elementary school in Deer Park. The teachers have been wonderful and special attention has to be given to the principal, she is great, runs the school with love and is always on hand to help, a parent or a student. We will miss May Moore greatly.

My 3 kids have all gone through May Moore and each child had good experiences. The teachers are dedicated and pay attention to your child's individual needs. A good place to be!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
