A huge improvement. Thanks to Mr Foster he really got this school in order. He is a the great fit. I've seen improvement in all the weak area of the school except art class. This school is on the right traffic to provide students with academic success.

Very very good Accelerated Reading program and kids are awarded and recognized for making effort to build on it.

I am a parent and my son is a second grader at Morrow Elementary. I think the school is fantastic. The NEW principal, Mr. Foster, is an outstanding and caring man. The right man was hired for the job and I am proud to be a parent of that school.

The teachers are good. I do not care for the principle at all. Not friendly at all. If your in that postion you should be kid friendly. The lunchroom food is awful and cold everytime I eat there.

My daughter has been at Morrow since she started school, now she's going to 3rd grade. I never had any problems with the staff at all. The school is wonderful.

Morrow Elementary School is a very dedicated school. They support young student achievement. The worst thing about this school is the teachers. Some of the teachers let the students do whatever. One teacher that catches my eye is Ms. Foley-Lane. She dedicates her time and effort to not only the students at this school, but the middle school swim team at morrow middle. She is a very good teacher and she should never stop.

Morrow has been a successful school for years, until a change in administration occurred last year. The focus on academic excellence does not seem to be stressed as it was in the past.

Morrow Elementary School has always had a tradition of providing a quality education to all students. In the past the former principals have taken a active role in stressing quality instruction in all areas. The AP is on the ball! It is my prayer that the principal will figure it out real soon!

The teachers at Morrow are wonderfrul and they love what they do. The administration support could be better. I think Morrow is overall a good school with a lot of dedicated teachers.
