Mosier schools teachers do a great job of identifying the strengths of each child and adjusting what is taught to meet the needs of each student.

I'm a proud parent of three children that go to this school. The teachers are genuinely concerned when my children have struggling moments. They all want to do their best in this school, that's what matters to me. I have never had a time where a teacher or any other staff member has turned me away when I just "pop" in for a question. They have excellent after school programs that also help my children succeed in school, which, if your child looks forward to homework club, I think you have a great school. It's a charter school, so us as parents and community work together to keep the funds coming, this money would help us in this endeavor tremendously.

We love MCS!! We have had our kids attend Mosier schools for the last 5 years. We feel that this is the BEST choice we have made in our kids education. The teachers are patient and kind. My children are getting an amazing education and are ahead of other kids in their grades at area schools. There are many parent volunteers and on a daily basis I see many helping out the school! My only complaint is that I wish Mosier had a high school!

I've been a parent of a family in Mosier Community School for many years. Our kids have enjoyed the school immensely over these years having had numerous exemplary teachers, enjoyed a wide-range of extracurricular activities, and have participated in the best school plays in the history of theater. Unfortunately, teachers at MCS do not stay for an extended period of their career because they have personally left. I have a feeling that this is due to the poor interpersonal communication skills of the executive director and new principal, which I've observed through their communications with families. It's sad to see good teachers go, and it really breaks the hearts of my children to see good people leave. Hopefully, authentic positive change is in the future.

This is the best school in both Hood River and Wasco County. My children are doing very well in this environment. You should consider yourself fortunate to get your children in this program.

Classroom size is almost perfect. First and second grade classes have 18 students, third and fourth have 22 (ideally it wouldn't go over 20) and fifth and sixth grade classes 20. Teacher's have more time to focus on each child, therefore ensuring that no one falls thru the cracks on either side of the spectrum, kid's who need more assistance as well as students who need more of a challenge get the attention they need. Most teachers at Mosier really try and teach to the students instead of to the class. Those teachers make our school extra special.

Mosier Community School provides a wonderful experience for my children, and a terrific education that they wouldn't receive at any other school. The blended classrooms work well and it's terrific that the older kids in the school are mentors to the younger kids at school. They all get along so well, and it teaches them terrific social skills.

I love the plays! (my daughter made me write that) But honestly, the twice a year plays are some of the best free Made In Mosier Entertainment! Mrs Harmon writes the script and encorporates fun songs...not your typical Winter and Spring performances.

Mosier is the best school because the parents care about their kids and about making the most of rural life in a modern way.

The 2 best points for Mosier Community School are the great staff and class/school size. It's not as alternative as it could be nor as they tout, and I think there should be more communication. I wish the kids started w/ science at an earlier age and that they didn't push reading for kindergartners. I love the environmental science that they incorporate.

I am so happy to have my grandson now attending Mosier school. I can see so much growth and change in him in such a short time. The school and its staff are truly in 'touch' with those with special needs and seem to truly care. I hope for the best for the Mosier school. I hope to be a resident in Mosier in the very near future and be able to participate in more after school activities and maybe work in the garden(s)!!! Thanks so much to all.

mosier is more of a family effort. There are great teachers and programs available including sports and recreational activities. Communication is a key factor in Mosier's success and they keep all lines open. Over all Mosier is one of the best school's that I have been involved with.
