Graduated in 97 from Moody ISD. Alot of things have changed for the better and worst. The school like all small towns our community loves their athletics. I moved back in 2004 after graduing from college to help guide, lead and add fresh direction. Immediately I interjected myself into my students school task/activities. Met with smiles and can't wait but then after numerous efforts and planning the school dosen't want help and dosen't even think they need it. The TAKS test @ the Middle school level is basic knowledge test, to strugle with this identifies poor learning activities and teacher assistance. There is a triangle of communication between the school (principal, teacher), student and parent without it there is no hope. Its the community of Moody which allows this to occur so before I blame others I blame myself for not taking a proactive approach. In 2011 we will see even more changes so hold your breath

This is a typical High School with the exception that the teaching staff still act like they are in high school. They are cliquish, and are NOT kid friendly! There two english teachers that are not good for kids. They are "gotcha" teachers and cause low moral amongst the faculty/staff with their vicious gossip about kids and staff. They are also vindictive towards students they do not like. They should not be teachers. There are several really outstanding teachers such as Mr Brunell, and Mrs Haigood. The principal is a proactive guy who tries really hard . Athletics has a good program, and band is great!

i went to this school a few years ago. There are some teachers there such as Mrs. Rothermel and Coach Christian who truely attempt to make the classes fun and at the same time prepare you for your college experience. All in all most of the classes were a waste of time for me. The only class I felt suffieciently prepared for college in was English, but Moody still does not require many readings that are needed. The history department once you leave 8th grade and enter high school is nothing but a big joke. It is definately not the worst school in this area to attend but there are schools that are better. The small class size was a large plus for the school.

Hope to see changes out of the New Principal - the last Principal was making great strides. There are some [teachers] that are actual bright shining lights Faith Zaichek, Ruth Haigood and Bret Brunell - I have watched my kids flourish in their classes.

It is more important to call and complain about a student's hair, dress or attitude (didn't we do this in the 70s?), and teachers and administrators either 'don't have time' or are not 'paid enough' to contact the parent when the child is not doing his homework or not performing to his capability- it's time to go. Homeschooling has changed our lives. This school board and school administration needs a big turnover. It surely does not represent the population of Moody.

Some, not all teachers, mainly just one comes to mind. Gives you grades on whether or not they like you instead of your academic qualities. Our athletic program isn't the best, but is getting a whole lot better, thanks to our new coaching staff. Our school is improving because of our new Superintendent and Principal. Although many students could use improvment.

The quality of the academics is very poor. Students rarely get informed of what to prepare for next day activities. The teachers are more intent on handing out pink slips then encouragement toward success. The frustration of my child was evident each day. I felt helpless to assist at home without guidance from the staff. I asked for assistance but did not receive it. If your child is not related to someone on the school board or a football player than their success will be in question. Many other students told me personally that they have been told on numerous occasions to just shut up and sit down. Very sad. I'm home schooling now.
