    Morris Hills High School had an overall positive energy for newcomers, but as time went by you can't help but feel dull. It starts off as any high school would, meaning your freshman year is something so new and riveting all at once. It's only after a couple of months however that the atmosphere kills your motivation. Classes that are meant to be challenging are just put off by the teachers themselves or the workload, making school seem like a chore to be done. Morris Hills has some quality teachers that prove to be fun, but it's unfortunate that it never sticks, having most of your excitement to go to school since it is suppose to be the "High School Experience" as mediocre.
    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.
