School Reviews

  • Recommended December 19, 2014 - I went to Morley for less than a full year, and the bullying issue was never handled. Teachers seriously need to take control of it! There are many people there that I know get bullied everyday and nothing gets done about it! But when one of the popular kids get bullied then they take charge, now tell me how that's fair. It's not. Take some action and protect your students! You should not have to be popular to get respect! IT SICKENS ME. - Posted by Student/Alumni
