Mooreland Heights Elementary School is a great place to be! Our school is dedicated to providing our students with a high quality education that focuses on collaborative, creativity, critical thinking, and communication. In order to achieve these goals we are dedicated to being both an arts integrated and 1:1 school. These two initiatives allow use to meet the needs of all of our students.
As an arts integrated school we are committed to integrating the arts (theater, music, literature, visual arts, and dance) with the core curriculum. Doing this helps deepen student learning, increase motivation, and promote critical thinking. We are also committed to providing additional arts opportunities for our students.
MHES is one of six elementary schools in Knox County Schools that is a PLE (Personalized Learning Environment) School. At Mooreland Heights, all students have their own iPad. This gives our students an enhanced learning environment that is not offered to other students in a classroom that doesn’t have the 1:1 technology opportunity.Our goal at MHES is to utilize technology to increase academic rigor, streamline student creations, and set our students up to become a successful lifelong learner.
