When you enter Moore Square Magnet, you are greeted by students and staff alike before even entering the front office where you are certain to receive a smile (I get hugs) and warm greetings from the Data Manager and the Administrative Assistant. The Administrative team - Dr. Jordan/Mr. Squires/Ms. Mondora - are quite responsive, timely, and reflective in their day to day professional practices. Students have a number of opportunities to get involved in extra-curricular activities that are academic or sports related. My son had competed in Science Olympiad, the Spelling Bee, the Geography Bee, and even tried out for the Soccer team. Every school has its strengths and challenges, however the difference at Moore Square is the receptivity Adminstrators have to parent and student voices - evidenced quite well by the very visible and supportive PTSA. I have recommended this school and will continue to so do based on size, location, staff capacity to build relationships with children, and the response level of the Administration team.

Academically NOT challenging. Extra-curricular programs only held sometimes. Art and Music teachers are AWESOME! Front office personnel rude and unhelpful..my many phone calls for various information or problems were never returned. Adminstration was also only so-so in solving bullying issues. My son's teaching team sent ZERO newsletters home in an entire semester!Lots of bullying problems..children disrespectful and rude. Teachers admitted to me in a conference that discipline was their main focus, because the children were so difficult. Escaped after one semester!

Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
