My daughter is currently in a GT magnet school and also AIG identified and those would be the two GT/AIG choices for my address. I took a tour of both schools and was impressed by both so was just wondering if anyone had students at either school and could offer some feedback. Thanks!

We are at Moore square this year. Have a sixth grade boy who is also AIG and young. We wanted a smaller school so that he wouldn't be lost in the shuffle. We love Moore Square! The teachers are so supportive and great with the kids. They are super dedicated and he has learned so much already. There have been a few fights mostly girl fights but I think that is mostly because it is middle school. Those were dealt with immediately and they have kids in fight do mediation before going back to class so that any conflict is really resolved. I have never heard of this anywhere else. The communication is great! Most teachers use remind for homework and they send school updates every week. The homework does not take two hours like they tell you. We were worried about that.

They have changed over relatively recently to AIG Gt and I hear it's getting better every year. The electives are amazing and the kids really get what they ask for. The band is run by an amazing teacher and the kids cheer for each other in concerts when they mess up. There are a few issues with scheduling and the change over to AIG and new principal but they are making great improvements. I think it will be a top tier magnet that has a super long wait list within two years. I hope not because I like it small! My child loves it there and has many favorite teachers and he is not been a school loving child. The kids are very diverse which we love. It is not a school within a school like Ligon or carnage. My child has made friends with lots of different kids. The band concerts and honor roll awards assembly included families from all backgrounds. Everyone was there to support the kids. It was very nice. The only thing we really don't like is the busing so we drive and it's not fun! But he is doing so well it's worth it to us.

That's great to know! I have a son who is a 5th grader at a GT magnet and we toured Moore Square and LOVED IT. He also loved it and said he wants to go next year. I'm happy to hear from many people whose older children go to Moore Square and have younger children at school with my children that they love it as well.
