Magnet News


As our 2019-20 recruitment season approaches, we would like to add to our Moore Square Magnet Middle School website a place for prospective families to read about some of the wonderful things our parents and students have to say about our school. We invite you to share a positive testimonial by clicking the appropriate link below and complete the Google form. If you have shared a testimonial previously, you are welcome to submit again. If you have an area of concern, this is not the platform. PLEASE contact us so we can work to address it!


We would like a brief description--just a few sentences targeting a specific area of which you have been especially pleased. Examples could include a particular department, activity, or event, but you are not limited to these topics! We ask that you do not use specific names of teachers and/or staff in your testimonial.


The number of responses we receive will help determine whether we publish your testimonial on our website, but many positive testimonials will definitely speak volumes to our interested families.


Thank you very much for your positive feedback!
