Schools For Morgan County's Growing Community
As existing schools in the Morgan County School District reached capacity from the increasing population growth over time, new schools have been built to serve new communities. Mountain Green Elementary School opened in 2008 and has been growing ever since.
Mountain Green Middle School was built in 2019 to serve grades 5-8. Sitting on 16 acres, between a newly developed neighborhood and the bottom of Trapper’s Loop — it was designed to facilitate bus, car, and heavy foot traffic. Architects worked closely with the UDOT and the neighboring HOA.
There are no signs of slowing down for Mountain Green, Utah. As this sleepy town continues to expand, some residents see these exclusive and private development communities as a threat to Morgan’s rural character.
Others welcome the revenue and jobs they are expected to bring. Supporters argue the projects will reduce existing residents’ tax burden and create more employment opportunities.
County and the school district would also benefit from tax revenue, not to mention there are increased housing options to help meet the high demand to live in this beautiful area.
