This school is geared toward hispanics. They provide hispanic children with all types of programs to improve and progress. The English speaking children are unfortunately neglected.I have 4 children who are currently attending this school. My children come home and complain about unfair and biased treatment at school. Im honestly fed up.

My son went to this school last year and had the pleasure of being in Ms. Joebgen's 1st grade class. His teacher was very attentive to his learning and development throughout the school year. I cannot say much for any of the other staff in the building. I couldn't tell you what the principal even looked liked because he never made his presence known. The PTA was a joke. I don't even know why I paid dues. They didn't even invite the parents to awards day. They were found to be a low performing school for more than 2 years in a row so now thankfully to the NCLB Act my son is able to attend a Recognized school.

The teachers at this school are for the most part, divisive and very set in their ways. The leadership is for the most part ineffective and lacks discipline

My 2 children go to Nancy Moseley and the teachers and staff are great. They are always making sure that our kids need to be where there at or excel higher by providing much support in there learning and as a person. My children always look forward to going to school everyday because they say that, there teachers and principle make it great. Hearing that from my children and seeing that they are not stressed out from learned everyday of school, well that just makes my husband and I feel my made the right choice. The teachers and staff will make time out of there schedules to meet with you if you should have any questions concering your child. They are always happy to meet with parents/caregivers.

I wrote a review about Moseley and my son and now I want to write another one. My son attends Ms. Wells class and he is very happy with his new teacher. She is a wonderful teacher that teaches at her students pace instead of her own. If they had more teachers like her at Moseley, this school would be above all others. My son has learned so much in a small amount of time, it is amazing. Thank you Ms. Wells.

My son just started attending Moseley. He is five and was unable to attend pre-k last year due to no room in the english speaking class. His second day of school, he was crying alot and his teacher, in front of me told him to shut it up and then proceeded to tell me to leave the room. Since then, he has been moved to another class away from that teacher. Overall, I am afraid of the kind of discipline and education that he will receive there.

I went to this school from 1st grade till 6th grade. There were a few good teachers there. I wasn't taught everything I should have been. I didn't realize this until I moved school districts and found out that there were things I was supposed to have learned in 3rd and 4th grade that I was having to learn in 7th and 8th! To those good teachers that I had, I thank them very much.


Posted October 13, 2003

At this school you will be lucky if your child gets a fairly good teacher. I have had absolutely no luck at all with getting a good teacher .I have two children at this school and it gets worse every year.
