We have had a great experience here. The teachers are encouraging and positive that provide strong structure. The principal works very hard to ensure the students have strong principles and are kind to one another.

We feel lucky to have such a wonderful school in our community. The teachers, parents and principal are wonderful. Our kids are so nice and we're happy to see the friendships that are developing. The teachers really care about the kids and their development. The PTA is fantastic and helps make this school great.

The PTA at Moulton is incredible and provides so many enhancements to the students there. They have a science lab, computer lab, vegetable garden, and music program all at no cost to the parents. Our teachers and staff have also been so impressive, patient and kind. Moulton also uses Character Counts to teach the children important life skills and I notice my kids really taking these character lessons to heart. The office staff, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Stucky, are one of a kind - the way they know everyone and everything going on at school is pretty amazing.Go Hawks!

My child was walking out of his transitional kindergarten class last year and was choked and strangled from behind by a child that was allowed to be in the TK class who was constantly hitting him and grabbing him around the neck to where he had bruises. The teacher who was also the Vice Principal was aware and did nothing. The bully who was harming him was too old for TK and had adult teeth. I think he was 7 or 8. My child was also sent to time out and seclusion areas because he was talking too much and asking too many questions the teacher said she would get parent complaints. He was in these other rooms such as the library, the office, or an outside table being forced to cut and color while other children were learning circle time and days of the week. I also was not allowed to be a parent volunteer. My child went into TK knowing how to read as well, being able to count to over 1,000, knowing all his sight words, and he even knew measurement. He was told by one of the teachers that he was not allowed to do addition, subtraction, measurement, and was starting multiplication. He was told he was not only not allowed to learn and ask these questions, also that he was not smart and was not allowed to work on it because no one else was. My child did not understand why this was only happening to him and why no one cared about his health and safety. My child was taken out of school last Jan. when he appeared to have a head injury with a swollen face on the right side. He now has suffered sudden vision problems, and emotional trauma and stress due to the horrible treatment. Many of the children were too old for the class being too tall considering my child was considered tall for 4. Also, they had been losing their teeth or had adult teeth. Many also had speech and other disorders. My child has a high IQ and he should have been accelerated but was instead punished for it because there were a lot of low functioning children being passed off by parents that came from other states, etc. whose children should have really been in a severe Autism classroom.
