Moore Magnet Elementary School sits on the site that was once Merricourt Farm owned by Mr. and Mrs. Hunter. The school was built in 1951-52 and named for C.H. Moore, longtime superintendent of the Clarksville City Schools. Numerous small renovations were completed on the facility through the years. Major renovations began in the spring of 1993. Numerous classrooms were added to the facility. The entrance was reconstructed, and a new office area enclosed. All portables were removed, and the building was self-contained. Students began school in the newly renovated facility in the fall of 1993. Moore Elementary School was renamed Moore Magnet School of Math, Science, and Technology in 2004. Moore Magnet Elementary School has been served by the following principals: Mr. Doyal Branson, Mrs. Grace Cunningham, Dr. Frank Hodgson, Mrs. Lettie Kendall, Mrs. Jacquelyn Hudson, Mrs. Laura Black, Mrs. Kim B Smith and present-day principal, Mrs. Ptosha Maclin.
The mission of Moore Magnet is to incorporate innovative, hands-on teaching strategies that meet individual learning styles and lay the foundation for successful achievement in a nurturing school environment.
The vision of Moore Magnet, in alliance with the Clarksville-Montgomery County Plan, is to improve student achievement, improve effectiveness and efficiency, build public trust and support, and to develop leadership abilities.
