We bought our home on the Morgan neighborhood because of such positive feedback we have heard about the school. Our children have been very happy and look forward to attending school each morning. The principal and teachers are welcoming and uphold high expectations. Our children have excelled.

This school is a disappointment in my opinion. If your child is not "up-to-par" with their standards, they ship them out to other schools. If you chose not to go willingly, they make it so difficult for you and your child that you have no other choice. The principal is rude and condesending. The teachers are okay, but the principal makes the final decisions. Definitely not a school that supports and encourages minorities or students who need additional help. It's all about appearances and test scores with Morgan Elementary School.

I'm very happy with Morgan Elemantary School. the staff and administration are thorough and willing to work with us. As new to the district, I was hesitant, but all staff and even students made my children feel welcomed.. Character building is an obvious trait that is instilled in the children and staff. One of the reasons we wanted Morgan was b/c of testing scores and proactive staff... we're very happy so far. I tell all my friends that they would enroll their children here too. Thank you Thank you Morgan Staff!

If your child lacks in reading skills there is not much help for the children who fall behind. It feels to me that the principle is wrapped on appearences. Take a walk into the office. Idea, principles should be transferred every once in a while to recall what it is like at less fortunate schools. The teachers there are great but there is horrible overcrowding of the classrooms. At first it starts out ok but wait a few months after school starts then walk in and count the student teacher ratio.

We have been very pleased with our student's experience at Morgan. We moved into the neighborhood because of the school and have not been disappointed. The principal and teachers are dedicated and caring. Our daughter is thriving there.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
