It is a mediocre school. It seems as if MCHS does not do anything to make themselves or their students stand out academically. While athletic programs are great here, you cannot always rely on athletic performances for a future. Moore County also needs to step up in what they feed their students with better quality food, considering there are less than 500 kids between 7th and 12th grades, with out charging a lot of money for. E.G. 2 dollars for 4 or 5 chicken nuggets. May I also point out that this school has very suspicious and nonchalant ways of getting money like charging $20 dollars to receive a confiscated phone back. I may also agree with an previous post from years ago. It seems like a fraction of the teachers here don't care enough for their students future, but instead only tries to make themselves as teachers look good. There are many teachers here that do really care for their students, but it needs to be a group effort from the whole school faculty. I say all of this from a 8 year high school student's point of view. The elementary school for this area is a much better place and environment for learning. So please do not conclude the same for the elementary.

I think the school is not what it could/should be and the teachers do not care enough about the students the way they did when I was in school. I am moving my child out of this school next year.

Right now I am attending Moore County High School, it is a wonderful school because it is so small and it is easier to learn in a smaller environment. But just like someone said it is kind of sad that we don't get to go to the bathroom during class that is ridiculous. Also a drawback is that there is not a lot of classes to select from. And some people need certain classes to prepare them for college.

I think Moore County is a wonderful rules. Its small so the students have more one on one time with the teacher, if needed. The teachers are not as stressed out so they do thier best ans the students respond to that. Because MCHS is not as big as some of the other schools in the area the students don't have the same problems. yes, there are goofy rules about no bathroom breaks during class, but thats the biggest issue. It could be worse, at least we don't have to worry about guns and drugs. The students become close with there whole class, they know everyone and they will all appreciate that in the future.

While Moore County Middle & High School has several teachers who seem very interested in the students acedemic and emotional well being, the administration and school board does not. The rule book is qualified with 'at the discretion of the administration'. There are written and unwrittwn rules in direct conflict with each other. No one is allowed to use the restroom during class time no matter what the emergency. I tried to get the board to review the 'rules' problem citing that girls cannot always predict their monthly times ;other students have medical notes stating their unpredictable need to have access the facilities. I got no rsesponse except a laughing comment about how long the rule book has been around and told the board doesn't handle such matters. Also that if rules and the punishment for infractions were set 'too many parents would be at the school'
