My two girls attended Moss from K-12, graduating last year. I would not change a thing. Both came away with excellent educations and are doing very well in college. I also have a 1st grader that I couldn't be more pleased with. She is in the AR program and loves it, it is an incentive for her to continue reading and improving. I am very proud of my children and their accomplishments and am very grateful for our school. It is truly the best school in the area.

My child has attended Moss for several years now and I believe it to be one of the better schools available. All schools have there problems, but Moss' are minimal. I wished that the school offered more extra curr. activites, such as band or track (not the end of the year track activity they do, but real track training and events for the entire year). Baseball is a primary focus and I think there is a lot of potential being lost with a lot of these kids. I am sure budget restraints have everything to do with what a school can do. Who knows maybe they could afford it if they worked towards it. But all in all I wouldn't send my child to any other school in this area. A fairly satisfied parent.

My children are students at this school and I wouldn't change one thing the classes are small and that gives the teachers time to care about all of the students not just a select few like in the bigger schools. My children have attended this school most of their school history and we are very proud to call this school home.

I have children that attend & have attended Moss school. I hope that my comments regarding this school will not be edited. Moss school has lots of problems. The school board needs to listen to the community. This has been an on going battle for several years. Basketball & Baseball are the only sports offered. I know personally that my children can't wait to graduate and with such a small enrollment, they just hope that the principal can remember their name at graduation.
