Welcome to Lyman Moore
, where students, families and faculty members are working together to support and engage each member of our community.  We believe that students need to own their learning, be asked real questions that make them think about the world, and be given opportunities to act to improve their community.  Feel, think, act.  All students are asked to do these things daily on a small scale, and to work toward doing them on a much larger scale throughout their lives.

What do we plan for the coming year?  We start each year by asking our teachers to share their biggest hopes for their students this school year.  See their responses below.   

I look forward to working with students, families, and faculty to grow the Moore Community in the coming year. Ben Donaldson Principal
