Moscow - School Report Question and Answers

Does the school have a library? How large is it? How updated are the books? Can students borrow books to read at home?

Yes, there is one library that serves the whole school Pre-K-12. It is pretty big but the space is a bit awkward. The collection however is excellent, they do a fantastic job of ordering new materials and obviously have a very healthy budget. You can pretty much request anything you are looking for and they will order it for you. It's the best-resourced library of any school I have worked in. - Jan 2021

A+ - two libraries.One in elementary grades, one in high school / middle school grades. (The building is large, with wings and floors sectioned off for certain grades.) - Dec 2012

A: Huge libraries given the size of the school. Never ran out of room, lots of titles, and if they don't have it and you want it, they'll order it for you. Really responsive and tons of money for the library program. - Nov 2012

A: Excellent libraries. Two of them. One for elementary and one for the higher grades. Packed with computers and the usual library stuff. Good selection. Seemingly unlimited budget. If you ask for a book, they will order it for you, almost no matter what. It'll arrive within a few weeks. That's a great service, for me both as a parent and a teacher. - Aug 2010
