The school continues to improve. New principal with a lot of vision and energy. Some excellent teachers. There are opportunities to participate in acccelerated programs in the district - REACH. New school building on the immediate horizon (being built now). Highly recommended.

In response to the other review, I think that Moore is a wonderful place. The uniformed police officer is there for safety reasons, not because the school cannot control behavior. Also, the school is not stoic and cold. The teachers and principals there have a difficult job since the children are only there for 2 years. As opposed to other elementary schools where the children are there for 6 or 7 years. Moore's job is to prepare their children for middle school life. Which, as we all know, is a big step up from elementary school life. I have had a wonderful experience at this school. I believe the people there love what they do and truly help our children become life-long learners.

Moore Intermediate school is reminiscent of a juvenile correctional facility. Not only is it's atmosphere stoic and cold, there is a uniformed city police officer serving as a security resource officer, which constitutes the high marks for safety and discipline. Special Education students have in the past been arrested for manifestations of their disabilities at disproportionate rates compared to other schools in the state. The ED special education program at this school has many problems, including over crowded classes tucked away in small mobile units. Teacher and student moral seems to be very low.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score a C or above.
