Who was James E. Moss?
James “Jimmy” E. Moss was a great statesman and community leader. He was known as “The Father of Utah High School sports.” Jimmy was the first principal of Granite High, coached the first state championship grid team from Granite in 1908, was co-organizer of the Utah High School Activities Association, and was the first principal of Murray High. He graduated from the University of Deseret in 1893.
Moss Elementary was originally designed as an open pod school and was completely remodeled in 2002 to provide enclosed classrooms. Most of the students who attend Moss live within walking distance to the school. There are two bus routes.
Moss Elementary serves approximately 600 students in grades K-6. We currently have a three and four-year-old preschool program and two all-day kindergartens.
