    My son is in full day kindergarten which was just offered this year. He loves his teacher and is challenged. They switch classes and have library art gym and computer class. I would reccomend this school to anyone it is small but excellent.

    My experience with my children at Morgan Township Elementary over the last school year and this school year has been nothing but excellent. My twin sons went from flunking spelling to scoring 100% on their tests now. Their speech and reading skills have improved by 100% also. My children are treated wonderfully by their teachers principal lunch attendants nurse and anyone else who comes in contact with them at at school. One of my children had a problem with another child bullying him. When I brought it to the schools attention it was dealt with and resolved immediately. After contacting his teacher about the issue the very next day my son was not bullied by the student ever again. My other son's 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Silva was the most amazing teacher I have ever met.
