  • Okay, so that review was in the beginning of the year, Morrill Middle School is truly a great school, and yes, Kaplan and Demayo are awesome teachers, but all of the teachers there are great, they all teach perfectly, it all depends on your child and if their willing to pay attention and learn something.
