Public & Private Schools in Moore OK
Shaping today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders is not only Moore Public Schools’ mission, but also the mission of all our educational outlets that serve our students. Taking pride in providing educational opportunities helps make a difference in students’ lives and also prepares them for further academic pursuits or for direct placement careers.
Spanning 159 square miles, the Moore School District serves the educational needs of 24,500 students. Located in an ever-growing area, Moore Public Schools enjoys a diversified student population educated at three high schools, VISTA Academy, 6 junior high schools and 25 elementary schools, with grades pre-kindergarten through 12.
Thanks to the continued support of the community, a recent $209 million bond issue generated funds that are being used to add storm shelters at those schools and other sites that are currently without a FEMA-rated shelter. Additionally, improvements are being made to classrooms, media centers and athletic facilities, along with advances in technology.
The foundation of our academic program is grounded in our mission to help students become contributing members of society. We believe the best avenue to accomplish that goal is through a stimulating academic approach in a student-centered environment. Twenty-three units of credit are required for graduation, and the traditional six-hour instructional day is the current delivery schedule.
- The elementary program spans pre-kindergarten through sixth grade where students are nurtured in a safe, caring environment and stimulated with engaged learning of fundamental skills.
- At the middle level, we have schools organized into six junior high schools. Our middle level focus continues to rest on strong literacy instruction with English and reading classes required. Science, social studies and mathematics instruction is expanded to prepare students for high school course work and eventual graduation with a decided emphasis on making students prepared for college and careers.
- Our three high schools create opportunities for students to begin to “chart their own course” with a wide range of curricular offerings including a productive partnership with Moore-Norman Technology Center as well as a growing list of courses offered for concurrent enrollment (dual credit).
Instruction in the arts begins in our elementary schools and is expanded throughout our secondary program through specific course offerings at every grade level. Computer, business and technology instruction, world language instruction, physical education, journalism and additional elective options are available as students mature and express personal learning goals and preferences.
We embrace the reality of wide student diversity. Gifted education is provided at the elementary level and Pre-AP and AP courses are offered at the secondary level. Students with special needs are served across the entire continuum of special education services. ESL and ELL programs are operational across the district. We recognize that students who experience life circumstances that make learning difficult need options, and we continue to provide alternative education through both day and evening programs as well as a growing internet-based program of studies.
Ultimately, Moore Public Schools is all about our students. Recognizing our need to stay current in vision and practice, as a staff, we are committed to continuous professional learning. We stay grounded in proven traditional practice but are consistently open to change that will improve learning and create positive outcomes for our students. We remain excited about serving our students as we grow personally and collectively, continuing our tradition as a vibrant and committed school district.
