Great school. Fantastic parent support and involvement. Principal is very personable and really cares about the students. Faculty is really engaged with students and want them to be their best. Most volunteer for extra curricular duties for the children. Really nice school to be involved with.
we just finished our last grade 6th here and our boy said to me "I'm happy I never have to go to that school anymore, ever. The school staff is unfriendly , the principle is sleazy person. If you are not satisfied with the teacher's response, you should contact the principal. Trust me, you can't contact this principle, because he will show you "O" concern about your concern or your children's concern.
The previous school district which we moved from was pretty good so we were skeptical about schools in Spokane, generally. However, to our surprise, Moran Prairie is much better than we excepted. Most of the teachers there I know are compassionate and helpful, especially my daughter's teacher who taught the whole class 2 grade ahead of the common core standards (math and reading) and most of the students are able to cope with it. If every American teacher is like her, our students definitely can beat against students overseas in the future. Moran Prairie also has a very strong PTG due to parents' high involvement and generous financial support -- it makes this school feel like a public "private" school.
This school has great teachers! When we moved here from VA, we selected this school first and then selected our house to be near to it. My children had to play catch-up when they first arrived, but are now thriving after four years so far. One of the teachers made an appropriate comment, 'This school is a college prep elementary school.'
We moved here from Calif, now in our 4th year. The difference is outstanding when we compare this school to Ca school.The parent involvement is the best I have ever seen. The school staff from the princ. on down is excellant. The class lessons are a healthy challenge to our children's minds[3 boys].
