    Morris Hills houses one of the best and renown XC/T&F programs in the country. New Jersey is one of the few states that considers fencing as a varisty sport. Morris Hills has a co-ed fencing program that has had quite some success over time. Despite its small student population, there are a number of clubs that help to teach world cultures, provide volunteer hours, etc.
    The staff care so much about the students as well. All of my teachers have always offered extra help or reviews whenever needed. They all have interesting personalities, making each classroom a fun experience that one looks forward to. The administration is also very hands-on, providing reminders of school policies, issuing homework free weekends to help relieve student stress, and even provide guest speakers on topics ranging from suicide to surviving fires. Overall, Morris Hills is very well balanced school that provides resources to all of its students and staff, creating a safe and comfortable school environment.

    I like that Morris Hills has a diverse student population; experienced & enthusiastic educators! I have been challenged by my teachers, which has helped me to not only mature as a student but also strengthen my academic knowledge. I have been able to easily make life long friends who share common interests & goals with me.
    I went to both Hills and Knolls during my four years. I graduated from Hills and was a member of the field hockey and track teams. The schools did not help ready myself for college or even the work force. After I graduated I went to college for a year for softball and then dropped out to start working full time. I have been working for at least three years now and still do not know how to use the knowledge I learned in highschool. A few teachers would sit down and help but you had to know them from sports or outside of the classroom. The rest of the teachers didn't care about the students. The counselors were no help either, they basically shamed you if you did not have a plan for college or even consider AP courses.
