    "Morgan has changed for the better in the past several years. Knowing the work of the administration, they addressed issues with staff and programs that have needed addressed for years. Some students are not advanced learners and they transferred to another school in the district where diversity could be masked and there is no separation of church and school. There were many educators who have retired at the school and some who moved on to a high school setting where there is much less educational accountability. Do not select the school if your intent is create social isolation or if you want to focus on outdated learning practices. Check the history over past 10 years: the school continues to out perform all other middle schools in Casper year-after-year with a more diversified population than any other middle school in academics, safety and sports. All of my kids have attended the school and it is recommended by all families who are connected with their children's educational needs. It must be good or it wouldn't have hundreds of students waiting to get in to limited openings year-after-year. FYI:The school board had to limit the size of the school because of popularity."

    "What a great school. It is the school to choose in a district that provides choice for parents. They are the top performing school when you look at assessment scores, students treating each other with respect, such high attendance rates and they win almost everything in their boys' and girls' sports programs, as well as academic contests. It seems like all the other schools in Casper are always chasing Dean Morgan and are trying to change to be like Morgan. Pick Morgan and good luck getting in, because it comes with a waiting list at all grade levels."

    "I went to Dean Morgan many years ago. My name was Dianne Pastuck. I would like to know if you could help me find a long lost friend of mine. When I attended Dean Morgan I was in gr. 8 in 1975. This girls name was Annette. She moved away from Mills that year and I moved home to Canada. We had a wonderful friendship and I would love to find her. Her mom was a single mom and wonderful. I moved home to Canada after gr 8 and have been searching for her. If you might or could help me on this journey I would appreciate it. If not I totallly understand."

    "This school has changed drastically since the other reviews were written. in the last 3-4 years there has been alarming teacher flight. Last year alone 14 teachers transfered or retired. The so-called Challenge Program for advanced students has been watered down so much that there is not much difference between it and regular classes. Students who fail are given D's so the school has a no-failure rate. Examine your options before choosing this school!"
