My daughter wouldn't have made it if not from mrs diprima. The children are racist and mean. Good staff, poor children

This is by far the worst school in Broward County. A school where even the teacher's are lower than the kids! Let me give you an example of what I'm talking about. (Teacher) "Don't let this weave fool you. I will get all ghetto up in here!" Yeah, she said this to her 5th grade class!!! How are kids supposed to grow up and be educated if their own teachers are talking that ghetto slang? Am I right? Also, don't expect to have a great day, if you come to the school. You'll leave knowing that you'll never ever return! Kids will run all over you. They only respect their own. They DO NOT respect anyone else!! The rudest students you'll ever come across, are at Morrow. Kids think they run the show. They do not listen to the adults, so imagine what they do to their parents at home? It's an insane asylum.

My son has been attending school here for kindergarten. Love this school. Love his kindergarten teacher, she cares so much. Parental involvement is good, throughout the school year they always call and have something going on for parents to do or participate in. The only annoying thing about the school is afternoon pickup. It takes forever to be able to get your child. Other than that the teachers are great the principal is always out participating and the curriculum is great!

Beautifully organized and structured. The Principal seems to be a top-notch educator, and the entire staff shows joy in being part of the school. This attitude transfers to the students who show great confidence and pride in proper behavior. There are very high standards in this school and it shows.

In 5th grade they don't have good preparation. Some teachers need to improve their work and the comunication with fathers.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
