School Reviews

I regret that I moved out of the school boundaries; but this is one of the best schools that I have had dealings with. the office staff is professional and very courteous, as well as all the staff. my child was very popular there with everyone. its been a year and I'm regretting moving away. my child was a student from kinder - 3rd grade. he was a very outgoing student he was very loved and received whatever attention he needed; and now he is in the 5th grade hes more laid back and don't have that thrive to move forward. If your child is in Moore; please! let them finish there. Its a more supporting athmosphere not just from the Teachers. the entire faculty is an helping village .
