    I've been in moran for 3 years and it's AWFUL. the school lunch is a joke the people are so mean and bully everyone. the teachers all don't know how to teach. looking back at the comments about moran from 2008 really shows me how much moran has changed. its a terrible school. we go on no field trips barely anything fun. no one who attends moran likes it. not even parents. i know plenty of parents and students who hate this school. its not school its prison.

    I think that this school has excellent standards and great staff and excellent teachers. I am in the 6th grade and my teachers are excellent. The principal is extremely nice and the same to the vice principal. I think that the overall school expierience at James H. Moran Middle School has the highest standards and that they are always met!

    At first I wanted nothing to do with Moran but after being a student for 3 years I truly believe that Moran is a great school. Moran provides multiple opportunities for a student with a great sports department and a great music department as well as many other opportunities such as sewing art cooking and technology ed. There is no way that at a child will not succeed at Moran.
