Welcome to Morgan

Morgan offers a comprehensive early childhood development program. Primary students, in grades 1-3, are divided by grade levels. They are grouped and re-grouped by skills in reading and math, according to abilities and need.

Some intermediate teachers specialize in math, social studies, science and language arts. They utilize curriculum guides, with flexibility to design instruction to meet individual or group needs.

Besides classroom teachers, there are additional teachers for art, humanities, vocal music, speech/language, physical education, library/media center and gifted-talented-creative programs.

Morgan offers special-needs instruction and facilities for MMD/FMD, a deaf educator and full-time interpreters for the hearing-impaired.
