We are almost 1/4 of the way into the 6th grade and so far we are very happy with MSM. One thing they do is they provide you with grades every 3 weeks so you never have to guess how your child is doing or find out they are behind when it is too late. They also allow a student to resubmit work if they feel it isn't done at the level your child is capable of. The teachers, overall, are organized. A couple of times there have been grading issue that I don't agree with (for example, grading how well you can hit a volleyball, not everyone is as skilled as others in sports) but there are so many other grades to offset those that I don't agree with, I let it go. I really like Dr. Bass, the principal, he seems to have his act together and I like all the electives they offer at the school.
My daughter is a sixth grader and her experience has been exceptional at MSMS. Dr. Bass and Mrs. Mondora are great leaders. Her teachers on the whole have been great to work with and she loves going to school almost everyday! I highly recommend this school!
HIDDEN GEM! My son transferred to the Square in seventh grade from out of state. I have not enough words to describe the impact his time at the Square has had on him. The administrators, staff, & teachers are exceptional. My son has evolved from a shy, quiet follower to a confident, caring leader. The staff know him by name and address him with kindness & respect. This year the magnet theme has changed to GT/AG. The opportunities are endless. As for academic, his testing speaks for itself. He scored 4 on all 7th grade EOGs. On the ACT explore testing 99% of the kids in the US who took the test scored below him. Thank you Moore Square!!
I have a son that attended this school from 2009-2012. He claims he did NOT like any of the teachers, they were overall horrible & disrespectful to the students. He pointed out various instances where the teachers would make students cry or run out of the classroom due to feeling so humiliated. My son is a very quiet well behaved child so he says he sat in disbelief & in shock compared to how he was raised & with how the staff had little to no control over their students. Now he's at Sanderson High School, doing very well & extremely happy. My son kept A LOT about this school quiet from me until now, where he has experienced more, become out spoken & experienced better schools.
My son was at M2M3 last year. He was extremely sad to leave this school. He had great teachers and made good friends. He had all the support he needed to be sucessful and is now taking all honor classes in high school. My daughter is an AG student. She has thrived at Moore Square. The location is great. The staff is supportive. I recommend this school very highly.
This is our second year at Moore Square and we LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! I love having our son in a smaller middle school, as it has helped his adjustment to middle school so much. The staff learn the students so quickly, and they are so accessible to the parents. Can't wait to send our second child here.
I strongly disagree with the negative comments made about the school as a whole. After conducting a two-year search for the best-fit school for my son to attend I was thrilled when he was selected to attend Moore Square. Coming from a very poorly run elementray school I consider the responsive staff (both teachers and administrators) a blessing. My son is in his first year and loves it, he is enthused about the assignments, outings and activities. Additionally, I find the weekly telephone messages from the principal invaluable. Speaking as the parent of a high functioning autistic I couldn't ask for a more supportive and encouraging environment.
