I loved the last four years here at J.Sterling Morton High School. I always felt save here, and I loved how all the students and staff are like one big family. We have lots of school pride, and are proud of where we come from. I admire most of all how the staff helps students as much as they can, and continue to give their support so that all students can succeed and have bright futures.
A few things that I would like to see change is a little more diversity within the school as we are mostly a Hispanic populated school, and a bit more parent involvement within school activities. Overall J.Sterling Morton High School is a great place to be !

High school is what you make of it, rather than what it is known for. Friendships are built here whether it is through clubs and/or sports, teacher involvement, or reaching out. The teachers work in this low-income community even though they are qualified to be working anywhere, due to their determination to give minorities the opportunity to achieve the same as others. Overall I loved my high school experience here and would not have attended anywhere else.
I am proud to call myself a Morton Mustang. Throughout my academic years, with the dedication given from teachers and staff, I had the opportunity to find who I was and believe in myself. From the student activities to the vigorous academic work, I will be starting college with confidence in myself, continuing to share that #MortonPride.
