The school fosters an environment of caring emphasizing other character traits such as respect, responsibility, integrity, honesty, sharing and caring. We have been there for two years and have had only great teachers who go above and beyond expectations for their students. They have also done an excellent job accommodating students of all levels.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree
June 10, 2015
Every two months the school focuses on student character. They go through great lengths to explain what it means and some of the traits include, honesty, integrity, respect and responsibility, sharing and caring. Within that two months period students from each class are nominated to receive character awards.

The staff and the parents MAKE this school the awesomeness that it is! The building is older, but don't let looks deceive,my kindergartner LOVES going to school! She has music, PE and library days, and get so many enrichments. I'm so sad we are moving away, but hopefully we'll find another school as good as it is here! (I only took off one start for the old building)

Moorlands has been a great school for our two children thus far. Their Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Hink was truly outstanding and their first and second grade teachers were also excellent. Mr. Santos is a caring principal that makes a point to stay engaged and personally help address any issues quickly. Staff does a great job with existing facilities and has managed spending well to focus on teaching materials and things that matter most to the students. Hopefully will see an upgrade in buildings soon to help them further.

My Daughter and I love Moorlands! The Teachers are wonderful! The area is beautiful. I moved here just to have my Daughter in the NorthShore school district, and to go to Moorlands. I am very happy with this school!

My daughter is new to moorlands. We moved from California.Thanks to her Sir ,class students,staff she is extremely happy here.she is from a difficult culture,country but still she says every body treats her well.The very first time, we went to get the enrollment form,the Principal came from nowhere i should say, and introduced himself to us,welcomed my daughter.we were thrilled .I saw a confidence in my daughter's face that very moment.Even when she got into trouble during PTE because of another girl,she was very upset.But her class Teacher resolved the issue very next day effectively that my daughter was convinced my his positive approach.I have seen schools were Prinicipal hardly seen in the campus or school Secretary being nice to the parents irrespective of color. but not in moorlands.If you have worries, please talk to the Principal.As a mom, I wish every child to feel happy and safe at school.

I agree with the earlier post. There is a subculture that exists here, something we have not experienced at our other school. My child is struggling.

Good luck if you are a new family that has moved into the neighborhood. This is not a welcoming school. The parents and students do not go out of their way to welcome new students. What you get instead are stares and the cold shoulder.

Both of my children attended Moorlands. They are now in Jr High and have transitioned well, thanks to the staff at Moorlands. I've found the teachers friendly, helpful and caring. The principal is very involved - he attends every function. In the mornings, he's out there, welcoming the kids. In the afternoons, he gives out high 5's as they board the school busses. And of course, the staff and volunteers contibute to make this school a Great School!

This school is NOT for children with a learning disability who is also in the general education program. Send your child somewhere else, where they will be treated fairly and their disability will be taken into consideration.

Moorlands is an exceptional public elementary school. The community of staff, teachers, parents and business make this a fabulous place to raise kids. The PTA is a large, fun, open group that does amazing events and grants to the school.

I'm the mother of three daughters-6,9&11. Moorlands has been exceptional in educating my girls. The teachers are very clued into the needs of the students. The parental support is unlike most schools. We have a very strong PTA. The teachers appreciate and value all the support parents give them. They in return do an outstanding job in educating and motivating our children. Moorlands is tucked away on a small hill. We are actually a very large school but with the feeling of a small private school. Thank you to the teachers and staff for doing such a wonderful job.
