Athletics at the Square


    We are the Mountain Lions, but because Moore Square Magnet Middle School has a small student population of around 620, we cannot support our own athletic sports teams. However, we do partner with Ligon Magnet Middle School to offer team sports opportunities. Interested seventh and eighth graders may try out for sports teams at Ligon. Sixth-grade students are not allowed to participate in sports teams at any middle school. Those students who participate take a brief shuttle ride from Moore Square to Ligon MS after school for tryouts, practices, and games.
