Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
June 21, 2015
Really depends on the teacher. Some are super effective, some not so much. However, with almost all the teachers here, there is an attitude of "what can you do for me?" instead of "what can I do for you?". Most teachers are there when you need them, so staying in touch with them shouldn't be an issue. A main problem with many teachers here is their lack of knowledge with the Macbook computers that are issued to every student, which proves to be somewhat problematic.

Amount of homework: Just right
June 21, 2015
Nothing to complain about. Most of it is very tedious. Senior year is when homework starts to get a little on the ludicrous side due to senior projects.

Develops grit: Strongly agree
June 21, 2015
You're gonna need grit to graduate! This school will push you quite a bit, especially with senior projects and credit hours. They like to push the whole "School of Excellence" thing on you too much.

Develops respect: Disagree

This school's faculty will treat you like childish animals sometimes. Administration enforces very strict rules and guidelines that insult your intelligence. The dress code being the worst. Some teachers will not let you use the bathroom at all during class, which is extremely unfair and disrespectful to many students who have bladder issues like me. Teachers are heavily opinionated and they will let you know. I've seen teachers engage in arguments with students during class! This school does not prepare students for college at all, still treating them like brainless children that need guidance in everything.

Develops empathy: Disagree
June 21, 2015
Administration couldn't care less about your needs. As far as they know, you're just a name and number. Front Desk/Office staff are especially the rudest. One time, I had to take a day off school for a college visit and I had signed documentation proving that I was on a campus tour. The Front Desk staff did not believe me and marked me absent anyway. As far as teacher go, some are very respectable and kind to their students while others are very apathetic. It's easy to see who truly cares for their students.

Develops honesty: Neutral
June 21, 2015
Sometimes, it's best to keep opinions to yourself here. Anything you say can, and will, be used against you. This school is only fair if it wants it to be. The school has an extremely sexist dress-code towards women. Some teachers are also heavily opinionated and do pick favorites.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
June 15, 2015
Most teachers rarely "teach" and simply direct students to use websites or simply read things off websites themselves.

I do agree with this because you need these qualities to survive this horrid school.

Mooresville is a true community school with a diverse population and involved parents. The 1:1 lap top program give each student in grades 4-12 an Apple commuter to use and take home during the year. The school has strong athletic, band and ROTC programs. The school has one of the highest graduation rates in the state, high test scores and has an excellent exceptional children's program. The high school is also about to under go a major facelift and building project.

We moved to Mooresville when my son was a freshman. Initially, I was not impressed. The school looked old and run down. But, the technology is amazing and has really kept my son engaged over the years. The staff has been caring and interested in helping him achieve his full potential. There have been many AP classes offered and the teachers have prepared him well for the AP exams. He has passed every AP exam with flying colors. We enjoy the sports programs and he has found a great group of friends to hang out with that have wonderful parents. The principal has had an open door anytime I had a question or need. We love MHS!

This school thought keep in mind this is my second year of teaching, Doesn't stand up to it's expectations. Some students say they'd rather skip their needed classes then come back. Some teachers don't care what you have to say (some students say & I've also Witnessed), My student isn't getting the needed skills for college. I've had parents call and complain that the classes aren't fun, That's not all my issue yet I am in-titled to make a fun learning experience, Also which others do not do. Over all Poor Learning Experience and Poor Interactive abilities. On a happy note, After moving my child has been getting much better grades, went from D's To almost B's.

I moved to mooresville high school in my 2nd semester of freshmen year. I am now going to be a junior, but I am moving out of state so I will not be attending mooresville. I am so greatful because the school is HORRIBLE. The student body is not welcoming at all. The teachers are horrible as well and so is the rest of the staff. I would most definitely not recommend this school to ANYONE. I am a very friendly person and when I got there, not too many were welcoming. Very disppointed.

My children love this school! All the teachers are very nice, and are quick to response. I love the atmosphere here, and I comfortable sending my children to this school, knowing that they will be safe, and well cared for. My children adore the Mac Laptops, they are so useful and my kids actually enjoy doing their homework. Best school around, hands down!

Fantastic school! Principal of the year for North Carolina is at the helm...it has to great! Congrats on that Mr. Wirt! Great classes including many honors and AP classes are offered at the high school. Every student has a laptop, that's 21st century technology available to all MHS students! I am a very pleased parent. If you are looking to relocate to the Mooresville area, The Mooresville Graded School District is the place to be!

Mooresville High School is a great school. As we are known for our sports the acedemics are wonderful too. We get to learn,do projects, and homework right on the apple macbooks which is pretty neat. The school may be alittle bit old but yet its cool thinking of all the people who have graduated from it. Go Blue Devils!!!!

I am a student of Mooresville Senior High School and it is a wonderful school with excellent teachers and a great sports program. I am also a cadet of the NJROTC program at MHS which allows me to experience and enhance my life at MHS to a level that many others do not have the pleasure of having.

I'm a student at MHS. Its great besides one thing, the lunches. One thing is they are too short, another is they are over priced and there is nothing to choose from. the reason why they are so short is there are 1000 plus students and only 4 lunch lines, come on. when i get out of the line i have only 10 mins .

Thanks again Mooresville High School. PS. My son is know in College.

Mooresville has a great school system, especially with the NJROTC(Naval Junior Reserve Training Cor) program. MHS is home of the Blue Devils and a very spiried school with many activities. I love it here!

Hi. Im a student at Mooresville Senior High. THis is a great school and for the most part the Teachers are awesome. The NJROTC program is by far one of the best in the area. The Acdemic Departments all work hard to help the students learn. It is pretty basically a good school.
