Moreland has BY FAR exceeded my expectations as a great school. It rates as 1/10 but I do not agree. Teachers are patient, nurturing and kind. They invite and encourage family participation in the educational process. They collaborate with MIA and the Children's Theater educational programs. My daughter is reading at a 2nd grade level in first grade. She gets positive feedback from her teachers and they encourage her leadership. She has grown both in character and academically in arts, science, reading and math. The teachers make us feel welcome and appreciated. Moreland also utilizes Dodge Nature Center to teach farm education and science. Lastly and most importantly to our family is the astounding diversity of many cultures and the celebration of each cultural background. I think living in a global society, it important that we embrace each other's gifts and cultures and Moreland does an astounding job at this. I highly recommend this school. Because Moreland focuses on community ownership and building individual child's strengths through arts based education, I believe this model is innovative and deserves at least an 8/10.
