my daughter and son in morgan woods elemantry.i think great school for my kids all teacher and staff very coprative.
My child has been a student for many years at this school. 2nd day of class and already rudeness. I am a parent who is VERY involved in my child's education. We get there early, I usually wait outside the class room I know the 7:30a rule, but I wait in the center of the Pod where the air is at, but today i was told I had to wait outside.... Can you believe that? In this Tampa weather. No consideration at all very rude!! Then teachers complain when they don't even see the parent. Just incredible! The funny thing is it was only 4 mins till 7:30a.
MORGAN WOODS IS A GREAT SCHOOL......... I TOOK MY SON OUT OF HIS SCHOOL BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF EDUCATION AND ECT...... I WENT ON LINE TO MY SCHOOL CHOICE AND SEEN MORGAN WOODS..... LOOKED UP THE SCHOOL AND WAS IMPRESSED..... BUT NOW MY SON IS THRILLED ABOUT GOING TO SCHOOL TO LEARN........ SMALL CLASSROOMS AND BEAUTIFUL ATMOSPHERE...... FOR FOUR SEMESTER MY SON HAD A'S AND B'S...... ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK YOU MORGAN WOODS FOR THE OUTSTANDING WORK...... MY SON IS LOOKING FORWARD TO SCHOOL THIS YEAR........ :-) THANK YOU.......
The teachers and staff I have met at this school are amazing. This is only my second year. As a single parent with a full time job, it's hard. I feel very welcome at this school. I can have breakfast with my daughter in the cafeteria; volunteer on my schedule; I am frequently invited to important sessions meetings; I am able to have lunch with my daughter on the school grounds. Speak often to the teacher, if that is the least you can do, then do it. I have a conversation with the teacher as often as possible about my child's achievements, as well as areas for improvement. You cannot wait until teacher/parent conference. Everyday is an opportunity to get involved and share in the challenges your child, and their school is facing. The energy and enthusiasm that these teachers exhibit is empowering. They have amazing ideas and they share them. You want your child to write well. Visit their classroom and involve yourself in how the teacher explains the mechanics of grammar. Then, you will be well equipped to reinforce what he/she has learned. Work together with your child's teacher and guidance counselor. Find opportunities to get in the classroom. You will see results.
I must agree with the comment that the writing at this school is poor. I have been let down by the speech therapist here for 2 years in a row. I have to correct almost everything my son writes, therefore decided to get a second opinion outside of school. Turns out there is a learning disability that has gone by completely undetected by any of his teachers. In addition to this his homework is only checked about a quarter of the time and that is only to see if it has been done, not if it is correct or not. It seems like the only students who get the special attetion they need are the one who are also a behavioral issue which my son is not. I feel as though they are just shuffling him along to the next grade without giving him the tools he needs to really learn. Needless to say I'm not impressed with Morgan Woods.
My daughter is finishing up Kindergarten and her Teacher Mrs. Manning is/was excellent. Hopefully first grade will be the same. Mrs. Smallen (ELLP) has done an excellent job again this year with my son as well. Overall the school is Good!
My daughter learned a lot with her Kindergarten teacher. She was always very advanced. I wish there had been more art integrated in the curriculum but I hope that will be the case as she enters 1st grade. Her teacher did a great job keepins us involved and informed of my daughter's progress.
Writing/spelling is poor and that is evidenced by looking at posted work on the walls.
My daughter is now in first grade at Morgan Woods. Her kindergarten teacher was outstanding, and she has always had excellent experiences. The teachers care about the students and there is a good balance of activities for the children.
Morganwood is a great school with great teachers. The elp class in this school is great, Thank you Mrs. Bergin!
