Allen was the first principal and Miss Peg Parminter was the first assistant principal.
When Moore opened it was surrounded by citrus groves and most students were bused. Over the years it has developed into a true neighborhood school as population growth
has created a series of neighborhoods that now surround Moore. In its early history,
Moore was a 7,8,9 junior high school. For a brief time it became a year round 7,8 school and five years ago it reverted to a 6, 7, 8 program on a traditional calendar. Moore now houses over fourteen hundred students and has a faculty and staff of over one hundred.
It is one of the finest schools in the San Bernardino County and prides itself on
Moore Middle School, built in 1966, is located in the city of Redlands in Southern California and is one of three middle schools within the Redlands Unified School
District (ADA, 20,000 students). Moore is on a traditional schedule serving approx-imately 1,500 students (grades 6 through 8) from the communities of Redlands,
Mentone, Forest Falls, and Angeles Oaks. The student body is made up of an ethnically-diverse population that celebrates varied cultural heritages and embraces the 18 home languages represented. Although the school (32 acres and 16 buildings) is located in an upper middle-class neighborhood, over half of the student population (53%) lives in poverty and receives free/reduced lunch. One needs only to walk the halls of Moore Middle School to feel the respectful, accepting, student-centered culture and appreciate
a beautifully landscaped campus.
The hard working, dedicated staff recognizes the seriousness of educating young
people to be life-long learners and competitive in a global economy. The staff
(custodians, food service workers, secretaries, instructional assistants, teachers, etc.)
sees itself as a team in partnership with parents and our local community to provide quality, standards-based instruction for all students within an educational environment where caring for and supporting young people is paramount. All staff members recognize and model appropriate, dignity-building interactions with students with the students' academic and emotional development as a primary focus. The staff is dedicated to addressing students' needs and make a tremendous effort to identify special needs students as early as possible and provide strategies/interventions to address the
children's needs. Additionally, the staff is committed to involving parents in their child's education through the use of regular methods of communication (newsletters, notes, phone calls, etc.) and ongoing opportunity to communicate with teachers and administration (Pastry with the Principal, Open Door Policy, Teacher Office Hours,
etc.). We believe the parent is a child's first and most important teacher.
Students receive character education through participation in the "Destination:
Character" and implementing thirty Core Ethical Values. Students are challenged
daily to build peace, seek non-violent solutions to conflicts, and strive to be better
The staff takes the school's motto, Striving for Excellence, seriously and continues to strive the meet the unique needs of middle school students.
