Previous reviews of this school prior to my family moving into the school district, spoke of a school lacking in so many areas. I find this to be a gross slander of an awesome school that is fighting against the odds. It is lead by a principal that meets and greets every student upon arrival with positive statement to remind them; they are preparing for collegiate aspirations and that all things are possible with hard work. They care for each and every child as if they were their own. It is good to remember that all educational success requires parental participation at the elementary level and not just that of the child and teacher. We can't rely on the school to be the sole provider of our children's education and also act as a daycare for absent parenting. With my child having previously attended elementary in Madison and being labeled as "slow", the facility at Morris took time to understand what areas needed a different approach to have the instruction understood and comprehended. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. Kudos to the underdog!
