Moseley has been open for 6 years and is on it's 4rth principal. Less then 50% of the original teaching staff are still there. When the school opened there were alot of veteran expierienced teachers and now most of the teachers have very little expierence. An optimist might say that the school is similiar to Texas weather. If you do not like a member of the staff, don't worry about it too much it'll change.
I felt that parent involvement was terrible. The office staff is courteous. The principal and vice principal are both new this year. The Principal and the VP seem lost and are trying to figure things out. I am sure perhaps in the future this can be a good thing but all this change all at once seems to me like it can't be in the best interest for the children. I also do not feel right about how little the children are allowed to talk in the cafeteria. I personally think children need to be able to communicate with their peers somewhat without feeling like they are in a prison. I think GP ISD is trying very hard with this whole "School of Choice" idea but why not spend money on all the schools in GP ISD instead of only a few select schools that they target to the rest of the DFW population. Why doesn't Mike Moseley offer all the programs Garner offers their students? Both schools are GP ISD shouldn't they be equally as good????? Where are our tax dollars going?????
Moseley is a great school, all the way from the Principal to cafeteria staff are just wonderful.
Wonderful principal, teachers and staff. My son is a special needs child and he and our family have been very happy here. He has been made welcomed and loved from the first day to his last. Many thanks to Ms. Millam and Mrs. Riggle. We love you and will miss you and your tender hearts.
Awesome School! This school promotes reading. Now, my son loves to read.
I think that the school is off to a great start. There is much room for improvement but we have a principal that is known for creating great schools with top scores. Parent envolvement is key to any school. I feel with evaluations of teachers and a closer involvement from the school that this school with be top notch by the end of this coming school year!
I hope that with this being the first year for Moseley Elementary that things get better. I think there are a few really great teachers there, however, I feel there is a lack of communication between the parents and the teachers. The teachers I have been in contact with are more likely to say what they think you want to hear to pacify you than to help you address concerns and help you help your child. Also, they have this 'no fly zone' put into place by the principal which would be great if the teachers followed this instead of telling the children they are tattle telling. They need to work on the extracurricular activities and the school spirit. This school is definately in need of more parent involvement. Educationally where's the tutoring? I don't think teachers should choose which students need the extra help and which don't.
