Amazing school! The teachers are very helpful and helped me improve in many subjects. Morrill Middle School has made me feel more confident in my studies. Also, there is an amazing music program over there with an amazing Director, K Rydeen. Overall this is an amazing school. However, the year I graduated many teachers left and so many new rules were created. It just does not give off the same vibe as when I used to attend. But Morrill Middle School continues to help many students in academics, and that is what makes it a great school.

This school can be good, it depends what kind of students go there. There could be lots of drama, chaos and ends up making a big fight... Wouldn''t recommend if you''re very strict with your kid, and wouldn''t want him/her in any trouble.
