    This is my child's last year at Mosshill. It has been a wonderful school and we will both miss it as she enters middle school. I would definitely recommend this school. I have loved every teacher except for maybe one.. her 2nd grade teacher but overall.. it has been wonderful. I do hope that there isn't anymore principal turn over though.. My daughter has been through 3 principals since she has entered Kindergarten so I hope the principal they have now decides to stay.

    My son was attending this school and they kicked him out bc of his education level was not to their liking bc of him having adhd. His teacher Mrs. Everett did not help my son out when he needed it she said that she doesn't know about kids with adhd and i asked them to put him with a teacher that did and they said no. My son was also being bullied in school and the teacher did not listen or believe him he would come home cring bc no one would stop the bulling. This school needs better teachers and a better principal then maybe it would b better there. I do not and will not like this school. This is the worst school my son has ever been too. Would not recommend this school if your child has adhd. Worst school and staff ever.....
