As a veteran teacher with over a decade of experience teaching in NYC and Long Island, I must express my enthusiasm and gratitude to this very fine school. It is the most nurturing learning environment I've ever had the pleasure to work with. Being a new resident this school year with two children in attendance, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of education superseding our overrated LI district. This school offers a far more challenging academic curriculum and is comprised of wonderful children, families and the most impressive staff. I'm blown away by the parent/school/teacher communication! Parents are informed of every minor detail and beyond...we are never kept in the dark. It is so wonderful to know about all classroom/school happenings and to be reminded, leaving no room for error. The school posseses a strong principal/school leadership and display of professionalism across the board. My children have never been this happy in a school environment! They are sad that the school year is coming to a close. We are extremely satisfied and happy to call Sparta, NJ our new home! Looking forward to many more years of academic success!
We moved into this school district in April 2011. My daughter's experience has been outstanding. She has a lovely first grade teacher who is by far the best communicator with parents of any teacher my children have ever had (we have been in four different school districts in three states and two countries). I wanted to leave a review because I thought it relevant to state that Helen Morgan is now a K-2 school due to a district wide reorganization that took place last year. So far, things at the school level have been top notch.
This school has provided a fantastic learning and social experience for both my son (Gr. 2) and my daughter (Gr. K). The staff truly care for each child's educational and social development. Class size is slight larger than state average, but not really an issue right now.
This school has teachers that really care about the children and their learing. They go above and beyond on a daily basis. It is a wonderful school to enroll your child in.
Helen Morgan has been a great school for my daughter. She is in Special Education and the staff has been wonderful and helpful to her. They never hesitate to contact me about anything pertaining to her. The teachers are very enthusiastic about their jobs and I could not be happier with the school.
My daughter attended this school for 3 years, we had a very positive experience. I would recommend sparta schools to families looking for a safe caring positive learning experience for their child.
school in transition...two principals in last two years...new young breed on teachers came aboard 2004 mixed with other seasoned teachers... fine music instructor, academically these kids shine..no extracurricular activites. overcrowding due to new developments; which must be addressed. moved in summer of 04.
This school must be the best of the best! It provides the best teachers and staff to teach our children. The teachers will go to the extreme to teach the kids everything they know. The entire staff's goal is only the best for your children. I am so pleased for this school!
I am extremly pleased with Helen Morgan school. The teachers and staff set a very positive learning atmospere. The class sizes are nice and I find that both of my children get individual attention. I am pleased with the extra courses offered such as Spanish and band. I have loved every teacher my children have had and love their communication and excitment in involving the parents.
