I have two children at this school and I love it! We moved to this neighborhood just so my children could attend this school. There are always two people to help unload the kids in the morning and help open/shut car doors. Everyone is so friendly and the children love it as well! Can't say enough about how much we love this school!

Schools were delayed bc of the threat of icy roads due to the combination of rain & freezing temps in the night. Fortunately, conditions were not as bad as anticipated, but precautions were taken. This was the shot call of the district, not the school & there was a sign in the front of the school informing parents of the delay. We don t have cable, but did hear the school delays over the radio - which everyone usually has access in their vehicles. The military bases personnel took the same precautions. Schools are place where we send our children to learn, not a daycare, making our children are our responsibility, not the schools. If one wants to rate this school based on a precautionary measure that was enforced across the entire area, including Savannah, I would have to strongly disagree. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The school is well maintained. Not only does this school teach academics, but it also teaches our children the basic morals & values each child deserves to learn to become a productive citizen. This is a family oriented school, which is a breath of fresh air in today's society.

If I could give this school a lower rating I would. I'm very displeased with the way things are ran at this institution. Now I know weather is at times an issue but to cancel school for 2 hours for some rain? get serious. I'm not sure whether M.O.E.S. is aware or not but people have lives and careers that don't always allow for their children to join them. I realize they sent a warning but once again you must realize not everyone has internet and cable access. I know you say you sent an automated call out to parents, but somehow I was overlooked and I took the children to school 3 times to find it closed for rain. Now I know you want to cancel school on a whim but I have things I have to do. IF you want a school that notifies you on a whim of things then this is the institution for you. If you'd like your children to go somewhere where you'll be involved in their doings, pick anywhere but M.O.E.S.

I am so amazed at how much my granddaughter has advanced in learning. Her enthusiasm for learning has increased exponentially too. She loves her school, her classmates, her teachers. It could not happen with a strong school administration and great teachers. This is especially important because of the great number of children from military families. These children need this strong support, caring, and encouragement.

The best school ever. The teachers, principal and staff do so much there's almost no need for a PTO. They've never failed to meet AYP. They're DOE report card shows they are above average in almost everything. Stats don't lie. The teachers and staff take a proactive approach to install respect and values instead of by fear or discipline. I only wish I lived here longer than 3 years, but that's the life a military brat I guess. It's going to be really touch to leave this school when we do. We came into this school in the last 2 months of 1st grade and our daughter made so many memories and friends....we both cried when we watched the DVD video Ms. Hall had made for all her students that had pictures from throughout the year. We moved 3 times, due to military, and our daughter had gone to 3 different 1st grades by the time we PCS'd here. I'm glad the best was saved for last.
