Campus History

Moore Elementary

Moore Elementary 
Be All You Can Be!

Moore Elementary opened in 1980 and was named in honor of Richard H. Moore, a former assistant superintendent for elementary schools.

In recent years, a maxiquad was added to accommodate an increase in enrollments. As enrollment began to decrease, the maxiquad was used by Dobie High School for various programs including Odyssey, Phoenix, and Early College. Prior to the opening of South Belt Elementary, the enrollment at Moore was 800 students. After South Belt’s opening in 2009, enrollment decreased to 450 students. 

The staff recognizes the importance of working collaboratively and focuses on academic success and high behavioral standards for each and every student. Moore Elementary is an organization with a mutual sense of direction. The faculty and staff follow an educational road map which enables children to reach their ultimate learning destination. Moore's campus plan adheres to our philosophy which states, "All individuals will strive to do their best each day."
