Morris Hills Regional School District Reviews

I would like there to be more emphasis on college readiness with programs that are outfitted to help the student decide the major they want to pursue before getting to university. Other than that the facilities need to be emphasized in the bathroom and weight room specifically. Under funding has made these use equipment and technology that is sub-par and can be hindering our students of growth. The food is overpriced at 2.85 a standard meal even if it is very good, it can be reduced along side with the pricey drink selection.

I would have to say that the best thing about Morris Hills Regional District is the professionalism of the staff. Whether a teacher was experienced for 30+ years or only a few years out of college, they all took their jobs very seriously and their #1 goal was to educate students. Not one teacher made their class easy to the point where students didn't learn anything. Rules were also strict which helped ensure a solid learning environment. The classes were challenging which encouraged us students to try to learn. By senior year I was definitely more than ready for college, and it was noticeable when I came to college and saw how students from other schools were prepared. The administration was very relevant and interactive with the student body.
I really enjoyed the overall experience at Morris Hills High School. The teachers there are the best ever, we have and incredible physics program, and the majority of teachers really care about the students deeply. Hills had many resources such as google chrome laptops, tons of Mac desktops, and a great library. The main things I didn't enjoy would be the administators; they always seemed to try to get students and trouble and didn't try to help kids that struggled with getting in trouble. In addition, the facilities were overall pretty good, there's a great science and academy wings, and the bathrooms and cafeteria were overall pretty good.
