Mort has come a long way in the past few years. There number one problem is lack of communication with the parents due to language barriers. The majority of students who attend here are Hispanic and speak no English at all. The other reason causing lack of communication is the parents who speak English but have no interest in their child's education. The area is not great and most of the families that live around here are either very young or have substance abuse problems. There are a few good families that care and are very interested in their child's education but there are far to few of us to make a difference on how this school is rated. The teachers are great and the staff are wonderful. This school gets a bad rep because of the surrounding area. I would not judge this school by the location it's in. Just like you should never judge a book by its cover! My daughter is a special needs child and gets treated like a princess there and her learning has exceeded mine and her neurologists expectations.

I have to say that at first I was skeptical about my son coming to Mort. we moved here from another state and with my son's disabilities I wasn't aware of the way they choose where the child goes to school. He was left to attend at Mort and was put in Ms. Kelly's 2nd grade class. After a rough start, I am beginning to feel comfortable with my son attending Mort Elementary. We have the full support of the wonderful Ms. Kelly and Ms. Henderson 2 of some of a few people who are involved in my son's education. Their patience and kindness is well appreciated. As a mother of a child who is on the Autism spectrum THAT is very important. If this school is a 'D' or an 'F' school it's because it lacks the neighborhood support and respect as an academic facility. Getting kids to school and on time does not seem like an important priority for some. If we could fix this somehow...I'm sure Mort would be an amazing school!
