Primary schools in Morges vs. St-Sulpice or Préverenges

I'm new in this forum and typing from phone so apologize in advance for inevitable typos.

We are moving to Switzerland shortly and currently looking at housing. After visiting the whole area and considering our preferences we have narrowed our choices to: Morges, Préverenges and St-Sulpice. We have seen acceptable flats/houses in each city that could work. We like Morges slightly better because of the town feeling it has and because of the train option to Geneva airport should we like to use it but I guess most important thing for us is having excellent public schooling for our kids Our thoughts may change as they do with every piece of new information but as of now this is where we are standing.

We have talked with couple of different Locals in the playgrounds and they advised us to rather choose St-Sulpice or Préverenges if we want to send our kids to the public schools. As Swiss people are, they were talking very politically correct and wouldn't point blank tell us that the Morges public schools are bad but rather saying that since these latter cities are more affluent, they benefit from more harmonious classes, which contributes to higher standards.

If it helps, our kids will be in primary school and only speak to English now. I appreciate people to honestly tell me if this is true. Not in political correct terminology but rather straight to the point.

- Does anyone agree or disagree with this view that Morges public school are not to the same standards as those I. St-Sulpice or Préverenges?
-What were your experience with putting your expat kids in Morges public schools?
- Are there social housing or rougher areas in Morges that could contribute to issues in the schools?

Please excuse my naive and straight forward tone. I'm not trying to be a snob or say kids from less rich families bring school down but rather heard something and trying to decipher it. I don't want this thread to become a discussion on this topic but rather appreciate to hear from people who know the schools in these areas and share their experiences with me. Thanks in advance for advice.
