My son has been going to this school for 7 months now. It took us 4 months to even get a parent teacher conference and to top that off that was the first time we even meet his teachers. Even though his grades have come up and we have seen and improvement on that part. We have seen a very bad mood change ...  Read more

When this year started we were very optimistic. The principal is fantastic, and the school grounds are up to date. The teacher however, we have come to find could not be worse, we will be moving mid-year and I could not be happier about that.

My Sons went there when Mr. Barnes was the principal. We loved it! He was a super principal and the teachers were fantastic. It seems like the school has gone downhill since he left. How sad.

Already, my family is missing Mr. Barnes. There's a different feel in the air. I'm sure the new principal is fine, but Mr. Barnes was exceptional.

I agree. Morton is a great school. Principal Barnes, the assistants, the teachers, almost all the staff, they are good people, easy to deal with, responsive. Maybe a bad apple or two, but very few. I would like the whole group to move to middle school and high school with my children.
