Moore County Schools Reviews

I moved to North Carolina was I was nine. When I entered high school, it was the last straw. Moore County Schools is very poor at budgeting the money for the two high schools in our county. Because of this, there was a very real possibility that the arts (orchestra, band, visual arts, etc.) would be cut. At the sister high school, CTE classes like Animal Science, Business, etc. would also be removed from curriculum. Students would attend and protest at the county meetings. Finally, the school board came to their senses and came up with the funding for the arts. However, it was disappointing that sports never have to worry about being cut, as they would receive new uniforms, a new field, and a new scoreboard. As an athlete and a student of the arts, both are important to me. Growing up with this school system was full of disappointments, they do not seem to have the best interests of ALL the students at heart.
Review Moore County Schools
Moore County Schools gives a variety of opportunities for students of all ages to get involved within their school and community. It offers a rigorous academic program to challenge students to meet their full potential. Moore County Schools is always looking for ways to increase the success seen from year to year. One thing I would like to change is making all Schools in the district have grading scales on a 10 point scale. Therefore, it's a better indication of improvement and helps students prepare for what their future college might look like.
I think that the teachers are great! They do a superb job in teaching our children and really good at communication.
