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.
This has been a great 3 weeks, after transitiating from elementary!! Glad we chose the Square!!
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.
Staff is great, they offer a supportive and challenging environment for the kids.
hands on; teachers are great; not alot of homework so we can have more family time which i feel is very important
2009-2010 has been my girls first year at M2M3. And I am sad to say that i have been very disappointed with the school, students and staff. They will not return ever!!!!
As one of the many 'former' teachers of the Moore Square experience I would highly recommend anyone who is considering placing their child in this school to visit it first. And please visit it while school is in session. Notice the class changes and lunchroom atmosphere. I was there for many grueling years and it never got any less painful to walk through those doors each morning. It was a very hostile learning environment to say the least. The teachers were great. Unfortunately they were not treated with much respect. Administration was present at best but not effective nor supportive. I saw many parents remove their kids throughout my years there and I never once blamed them. Do your homework on this school before you sign up. You'll thank yourself.
This is our third & final year at Moore Square. Our student has done well academically. The school has good points: dedicated, National Board Certified professional teachers who challenge students; afterschool clubs such as Strings,Drama and Beta club. Intramural sports, too. That said, the school has real problems. Many daily influences are bad. Our student's siblings will not enroll here. Core problems, I believe, are related to the troubled home lives of the school's base population, which bleed into the school. Discipline and behavior have been continual problems since Day No. 1. When accessible, administration is unresponsive. Conversation doesn't bring positive change. PTA hasn't helped. School is beautiful, great location. But bricks don't make great schools. Meaningful changes need to happen in order for Moore Square to realize its promise and remain a magnet school.
Im sorry but i beg to differ with the recent comment, this is an actual student from Moore Square, you want to know the real truth about this school? it is corrupt and the teachers cant take care of the students, they are disrespectful towards the staff and the students. This school may look nice on the outside but in the inside its bad, dont judge a book by its cover. sure the after-school activities are fine, but is it really worth all the bad influence? and I've had many racist comments said towards me and I'm tired of all the bad things going on.
My child is in their third year at this school, loves it, and is a straight A student. Liaison with museums, government offices and businesses in the school's downtown neighborhood is highly enriching.I have heard mixed views about teacher quality; all of my child's teachers have been good, some have been truly outstanding. Drama program and after-school drama club has been very important to my child; they performed a highly original work this winter, written by the teacher and developed through improvisation by the students; it was very entertaining and thought-provoking; impressive. I have witnessed some 'non-compliance' by students, and consider teacher-applied discipline too lax on a couple of occasions; however, I cannot say if the behaviour I saw was general, or a result of occasional high spirits. Counselling team is responsive,sensitive, very professional. Facility is absolutely beautiful. No inter-school sports, (not a requirement for us, but essential for some).
