Academic Resources


As parents of middle school students, we know that each of our children has their own unique strengths, talents, and learning style. 

What we love

JT Moore offers a wide range of opportunities for every one of our students to succeed, grow, and excel. Starting with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, JT Moore embraces the IB Learning profile. The profile aims to develop learners who are:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective 

Balancing a rigorous focus on the core academic subjects with a holistic view of developing our children and connecting to our community, the JT Moore IB Program serves as a guidepost for our students through their middle school years.

JT Moore offers experiences for all students through the integrated approach to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math through the STEAM program, as well as opportunity for advanced learning projects through the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) courses. 

In partnership with other schools in our cluster including Glendale Elementary and Hillsboro High School, JT Moore’s Spanish program can continue a pathway in Spanish language learning for students to earn high school credit during their 7th and 8th grade years. JT Moore students can also take advantage of the excellent Library, with its spacious layout, technology tools, and spaces for students to gather and learn together.

Finally, as parents we get to see our young scholars show what they’ve learning in Student-Led Conferences. Building on the principles of the IB Learning profile, JT Moore encourages students to reflect on their learning process and take responsibility for sharing their accomplishments. In these conferences, parents meet with their student and teacher at the school; the student takes the lead in presenting a portfolio of work that they have prepared. It’s a great way to celebrate progress, reinforce efforts to improve, and boost our students’ confidence in communicating and taking pride in their work.

The faculty and staff of JT Moore continue a tradition of excellence in providing quality educational experiences for our students. We offer the structure, academic environment and caring atmosphere to enable students to be successful. Each student is treated with respect and encouraged to reach his or her highest potential. A broad curriculum meets the academic needs of students at all educational levels.
