Weak principal. Belittles the teachers behind their back. He mistreats the counselor and will put other teachers down when he is with his favorites and he encourages rumors. Some teachers are good but not many. Weak principal = low teacher morale = poor learning environment.

I regret sending my child to this school because of the passive aggression I noticed among a couple of the teachers and principles for 5 and 6th grade. Love of teaching should mean you can find ways to relate to students. Because with that love, you see your student's potential and find ways of helping them not making them feel inadequate. This is what my child had to experience but luckily now she is in a better environment.

My child has been here for her first year in school, Kindergarten, and she loves the teachers, principal and her friends. She has done well at Morton and I am keeping her in this school for 1st grade and on through 6th, if I can help it. I enjoy the programs and fun nights for the kids and she has a great teacher, Mrs. Gresham, who corresponds with me and keeps me updated on her work habits and behavior daily and monthly as well.

my child has been going to this school for 2 years. Most of the school work in done in the classrooms. One of the teachers have claim work was not turned in. Now they have a failing grade and did not deserve one. Though the home room teacher is one of the best, one teacher in particular seem to care. I wish I never enrolled my child here.

Arlington ISD does not have programs which accommodate gifted and talented children. My son is repeating the same things and becoming bored with school as he is not challenged enough at school.When asking about this, the reply is we try to do what we can. I do not feel that is acceptable. These children are our future and if we want to see them excel, we must have programs to assist them at school.

My son was so nervous about starting school this year he is in the first grade and didnt know anyone. Well, its only been the first week and he already loves his teacher, Ms Bell, she has made him fell very comfortable and secure already. She has made me feel better about sending him to a new school, she made the adorable welcome packages that show she truly cares about her students and if you have never met her you need to hersmile is genuine and her personality is great. Thank you Ms Bell.

I think Morton is a wonderful place to learn with a great principal. The teachers have been very informative and helpful whenever I've had questions.

I have mixed feelings about morton. The principal they have now is awesome and taking care of business. The teachers my kids have and have had have been awesome, but i cannot say that about some that i see in the halls. Now the uniforms, i love them.

I do not recommend this school to anyone. This is a uniformed school that strictly enforces dress code. The principal told my little girl to tuck in her shirt because it looked better. The school communication between parents and children is awful. My daughter loved to go to school when she attended Little Elementary. I have to force her to get dressed and excited about school now.

Morton has been a good school for my son. They have good one on one, day-by-day supervision. Each child gets the change to have his/her own thoughts and be a part of the learning process. I have seen a big improvement in my son's overall attitude since being enrolled at Morton. Thank you.
