Morgandale School 3

I am not happy with the current principal and the new assistant principal. There is no consistency when it comes to handling situations and protocol. I love the teachers at Morgandale , they do their best with the few tools they are given. I am glad they hired a Spanish teacher for next year, but I think the most important thing to add for next year and beyond is a safety coordinator. I am very concerned with my son's safety in that school. They need to take out 7th and 8th grade, because having middle school kids with Kindergarten kids and no safety coordinator or anything is not safe at all and there have been many situations happening this year that scare me. If things continue like this, I will be pulling my son out of Morgandale and going somewhere else. They have taken out school activities for the kids in the last year and I am not sure why. They didn't have fall festival or Santa this year and I don't know if it is because of the new principal or what the reasoning is??? I AM NOT VERY HAPPY WITH MORGANDALE THIS YEAR!!! The administration is not good at all.

Ms. Espinoza - I want to say a big THANK YOU, MUCHAS GRACIAS to Ms. Espinoza for being so caring and communicates effectively with parents. My son has excelled in her class this year and she takes the time to teach these kids everything and the homework is very effective and she takes her own time to teach them Cumbia for MPS Cantos and she is the only teacher who does that!!! So thank you so much for being a wonderful teacher and making great memories for the students!

I am not happy with this school. Administration is terrible this year! They need new administration in there! And for a bilingual school, the principal should speak both English and Spanish, but she does not speak Spanish.

I am not happy this year with how the new principal and new assistant principal handle situations and they don't investigate situations correctly and they don't contact parents until hours later!

Although under equipped the teachers do very well with what little they are given. It would be good to see more advancements in the classrooms to assist in my child's education.

Bullying is tolerated which is not respectful to any student or parent. My kid comes home with cuts and bruises often.

There is no consistency in the culture of this attribute in this school. This needs to be modeled from the top down and isn't.

Although the teachers are phenomenal, this school is behind in technology, behind in educational advances, behind in how to properly equip their teachers and staff. The teachers work hard to build bridges with parents but the current principal does not. Although this school has the potential to be a grade A school it falls short because of the lack of care on the part of the principal and administration. This is our neighborhood school and we are considering finding a new school for our children.

Each teacher takes the time to teach not only curriculum, but also values. It shows in my childs behavior when he comes home.
