I have two children attending the Morrison school and although a few years back I was a bit disappointed with a few issues I can now say that I love it. My youngest son has an I.E.P. at the Morrison and I couldn't ask for a better staff to work with him,while my oldest son has had the best teachers five years in a row!!! To all the staff and volunteers at The Morrison school I say keep up the GREAT work !!! Thank you

I love the Morrison school. I have nothing but nice things to say. The principal, his assistant, the nurse and other staff volunteers and teachers are very friendly and welcoming even in the midst of all the challenges that it takes to run and operate an elementary school. Yet it seems they know every student by name! Which is very rare with so little time and high state demands. Every time I enter the school after being buzzed in, I am greeted with a warm and friendly hello and a smile. I appreciate that !! My child's first grade and now second grade teacher: Mrs. Alpert and Mrs. Cotton (as are all the teachers) are attentive,supportive and encouraging and dedicated to education. I highly recommend the school to anyone moving in to the area.

I was completely unhappy with the Morrison School. My child was a kindergarten student and her teacher pretty much had her listed as a lost cause that would need remedial help and services. Luckily, I am praising Karma, the Morrison has not done well and failed their MCAS exams allowing my child to go to a different school. Wow, is all I can say. My child is above average in all her studies and is thriving at an unbelievable rate. The teachers actually take the time to CARE and HELP their students. NOT let them settle in the back ground because they are quiet. I will never advocate the Morrison and always be angry withe that kindergarten teacher as she almost lost my child in the abyss of mediocre education at best. Thank goodness for real dedicated teachers!

The teachers and support staff in this school are phenomenal. I went to school here over 20 years ago and the quality has steadily improved. My 5th grader is about to graduate from Morrison and my Kindergardener is just starting her experience here. Like another parent stated, the only problem I've ever had was their lack of dealing with problem students. Bad behavior was not given strict enough punishment. But the PTO works so hard here to give the students a great experience and many fun activities and supplies for the school! And, Mrs P in the office is always willing to help (with a smile!). This is a great school, especially for my daughter who has learning disabilities!

They have the highest quality teachers that really enjoy their students and try to help them be the very best people they can. They provide many programs to help integrate children that have mild to moderate learning difficulties into the mainstream curriculum.

Archie T. Morrison is a great school for many reasons. Our principal is a former student whose family still lives in the community so I feel is commitment to the school is more personal. Our teachers and staff give of their time and talent everyday to make the school experience better for our children. Our PTO is strong and works with the families and the staff to provide where funding is limited. Please choose Archie T. Morrison as one of America's favorite schools.

The success of this school is due to the open communication and relationship between parent and teachers and support staff. Together we achieve more! Every day this school community makes the difference in the lives of children, their families, teachers, support staff and neighbors! It begins at school and extends far beyond into our Braintree community! Teachers teach because they love children, parents support their teachers and they are empowered to make choices to support their school in their individual, unique way! When all are working together, it creates a community of respect, support kindness and compassion for others. It doesn't end at school, yet it begins and spreads way beyond the school. It's a pleasure and honor to be a part of a this school community...Together we make a difference everyday...

Morrison students have had the top test scores in the town and state. Our teachers are the best. There really isn't anything our teachers or principal wouldn't do for the students. We have one of the most involved PTOs. It's a great school and I'm so glad to be a part of it.

This school is great. I would wish every child could attend it. The principal is the best I have ever seen knowing each child by name and being involved with everything. The teachers are amongst the best I have ever seen. The lack of discipline with unruly, unbehaved, disruptive students is the only problem I see with the school. I think they need to be a bit more strict and make the children accountable for poor behavior

As a former Morrison parent, I can't say enough about the staff and curriculum. I had two children attend there before we moved out of state. The staff is very attentive and works hard to help each child feel special and achieve success. I would love the opportunity to to send my 3 youngest children to school there.

The Morrison school takes extra time to involve the parents in activities that really bring the community together. This is the second child I have sent through this school and the educational and social benefits are vastly superior to any other school at this level. I am becoming familiar with the new principal (second year)and have found him to be dedicated to the school, the community, the parents and each individual child. He takes the time to learn the name of every student and is at every school event. If you can find a place to move to in the district, I would advise you do so for the benefit of your children!
