Morris Hills Regional School District Reviews

The sports programs were phenomenal- I've learned everything from the sport itself to mental toughness.

While I was there though, I've noticed a bias against boys stemming from administration. Often boys were targeted when 'trouble' was caused. Being a girl, this stuck out to me. I would like to see a change in that. I've seen many of my guy friends prematurely get yelled at or even punished for things that they did not take part in.

The AP classes were an excellent way to prepare for college. Taking AP lang was the greatest decision I've made, for college English was a breeze for me.

I went to Morris Hills High School for the Magnet program rather than Morris Knolls. This was mainly because I wanted to experience something new, and that is definitely what I got. Morris Hills is a lot more diverse than Morris Knolls, which is one of the reasons I love it so much. The administration cares about their students, and the teachers are usually either really good or just plain horrible. While Morris Knolls seems to have better facilities than Morris Hills, I am so glad I went to Morris Hills as I got to meet so many different kinds of people and learned a lot from my friends.
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.
