    i go to school at Morgandale as an eight grader and it is awesome here. you still get recesses here and the teachers are great the really try to help you. The kids here also respect the teachers and the teachers are really nice. there are also really never any fights here and if there are the school goes on lock down it is really safe here.

    i feel morgandale has taught my daughter nothing on top of her teacher making her have nap time on the floor instead of telling me she needed a new mat to sleep on. she comes home speaking spanish and i dont know what she is saying. she learned more in k3 than in k4 i could have home schooled her if i new it was gonna be that bad. i kid stole something from her that the teacher gave her and made her try to handle it instead of the teacher stepping in to help. she comes home dirty and always complains about a kid pushing her she has more bruises on her knees than i have ever seen and to top it off at the beginning of the school year she fell off the top of the slide and she came home with her neck hurting to the point where she couldnt move it and nobody called me.

    I had two children who had their 8th grade completion at Morgandale!!! One started when in 3rd grade the other started when in 2nd grade and from day one my children and myself felt like family. The staff and other students and families are very helpful (you need some resources if they can't help they will find someone who can)!!! Now I have a 4th grader at Morgandale although we live further away from the school I still send him there and when my youngest starts...MORGANDALE will be my choice!!!! Friendly Students Wonderful Teachers an Outstanding Principal and a Great School!!!!! The best combination!!!!

    I wrote a review of Morgandale back in 2004. One of my children is now at Marquette University studying Biomedical Sciences two are at Greendale High School one at Greendale Middle School. I am still telling everyone who will listen about the fabulous experience that Morgandale was for my family. Despite moving to Greendale I kept my children at Morgandale as long as I could! The learning experiences the discipline the level of respect and the family atmosphere are greater than anything we have experienced in the Greendale School District

    Teachers at this school have terrible communication with parents. They treat parents as if we are terrible people. I receive no respect from them. Teachers do not make me feel welcome and this is only my second year with the school.

    Morgandale school has high expectations for all students. Using the rigorous curriculum and academic targets our students are progressing and achieving success.

  • (5 years ago)

    We have a diverse population and are a high achieving school. We regularly exceed the achievement scores for the district. We are a friendly place to work and to have a child attend.

    i love it so much this school

    The school is following the MPS K-8 curriculum. It's a great initiative. However Morgandale lacks the space to needed to keep this school exemplary. There are some exceptional teachers and staff but some lack the communication channels necessary for today's busy dual income parents. Overall not a bad school. I would give it 5 out 10 if I had to rate this school.

    My son is autistic and has attended the special education program at Morgandale for three years. At first I was nervous about them meeting his needs. Now I wouldn't have him anywhere else! The teachers support staff and students treat my son like family with a keen and sincere interest in his progress. They celebrate milestones with us and keep us informed of everything along the way. I am looking forward to enrolling my other children into this school! It is a wonderful school that reflects the hard work of its teachers and involved parents!

    All 5 of my grandchildren have attended Morgandale since kindergarten. Morgandale is not just a school but a family community of caring people. When decisions are made they are made to benefit all of the children attending Morgandale not just a select handful. Although highly professional the teachers and administrators do their best to communicate on a level that can be understood by all. I would recommend Morgandale school to anyone wanting a quality caring education for their children.

    Morgandale is a gem in the MPS system! The bilingual program gives the children a chance to open their world! The teachers are loving and intelligent. They work well both with the students and with the parents - keeping the flow of information and learning complete. The principal is very hands-on and caring. The staff works together to provide the highest quality learning experience for your child. If you are a Milwaukee resident - Morgandale is the place to be! If you aren't a Milwaukee resident - Use Chapter 220 to come into Morgandale! My family has blossomed here!
