We came from another cyfair isd school.. I had high hopes in the beginning. The school is not organized. The first day my kids did not eat breakfast. They are in club rewind, my kids were told to sit there and wait for someone. No one came until it was time for all kids to go to class. My kids would come out from different back doors every day. I would walk them home everyday. My son is a 1st grader, his class eats @11am, and they have no snacks. They are young, and use a lot of energy so of course they will get hungry. I'm putting my kids back at their old school even if I pay the transfer fee.

We're new to the area and was a bit skeptic about Moore at first, because I was comparing ratings with Hamilton Elementary, which is down the street. I have a 3rd grader at Moore and PK at Hamilton, so I was comparing a 10 school against a 9 school. Let me tell you that the ratings should be reversed. Moore Elementary is by far a 10+ school. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. My son feels safe and at ease at the school, the staff communicates well with parents and their front office is well organized. They have an amazing Adaptive Behavior Center for children that need that extra help to succeed in the mainstream classroom and Mrs. Long who oversees this program is the most professional and excellent teacher I have ever met. She gives the structure and discipline required to make all her kids successful and ready to transition back to the mainstream classroom. The administrative staff is genuinely display a sincere concern for your child's success. I definitely recommend this school for anyone relocation to the NW part of Houston. Moore is the standard-bearer of elementary schools in the CY-FAIR ISD.

I remember attending this school in 2004/2005 and I can say for the most part if I can remember it was amazing, the teachers taught with no problems and the kids behaved I recommend this school hands down

There are some really fabulous teachers at this school. Ones that are able to recognize how each child learns and implement techniques suited to his or her individual needs. Most of the teachers really seem to care about the students, and it is obvious that teaching is a passion. Regarding parent involvement, unfortunately this has been on a steep decline recently. Perhaps it is because many of the active volunteers children graduated to middle school. Or. as in my case, I developed burnout from not being appreciated for a lot of hard work. How hard is it to say thank you? As for the principal, I wish I had something positive to say about her. (No, my children have never been to the principal's office, except for a reward.) She is one who likes to change things just for the sake of changing things~ even if it is for the worse. She must be very intelligent, but she doesn't have a lot of common sense and is incapable of recognizing when her changes aren't working. First time we met, she was giddy that the students liked her outfit. Really? Priorities... It is a good school, you just may feel a bit like you stepped through an Orwellian portal when you walk through the front door.

We just moved here from Louisiana. My son is doing really well in this school. The teachers were very quick to recognize him as a gifted/talented candidate. I'm impressed with the content and pace he is learning even after switching from a private school in Louisiana. Open concept takes some getting used to, but the teachers do a great job closing up the rooms with cabinets and dividers. He seems to have the sweetest teachers in the world who have been in the district for a long time. High teacher retention at this school.

They never once thought that maybe i was telling the truth and other 10 year olds might not be a reliable witness! All of this was happening and the school still hadn't told my parents. This school effected me for years after my attendance and still does to this day. Keep your children away!

Not impressed. They teach to a substandard test (TAKS), and fail to go above and beyond cookie-cutter education. If you're kid doesn't learn from their one-size-fits all approach, expect them to recommend you drug your kid. Especially boys, being they only have PE every other day.

The teachers at this school have to follow a strict curriculum. The one and only goal seems to be passing the TAKS test.Creative learning, science experiments,and teacher/parent input are pretty much out of the question.

This school is wonderful. Parent involvement is great in the early grades but falls a little short in 4th and 5th grade. The school is very well run and organized.

Moore has great parental involvement which contributes greatly to its overall value. Most of the teachers are wonderful, motivated, and effective. Fifth grade appears to be the weakest, with extremely strong kindergartens and third grades. I would not hesitate to send my children to this school. I have had 2 complete their elementary education and am very pleased.
