Morton Community Unit School District No. 709 Reviews
I love the Jefferson elementary school . All of my children did well until Jr high. Once in Jr high teachers and expectations were all over the board and they don’t prepare our kids for High School! High school has high expectations and put excessive pressure on our kids to excel. However, my daughter was very prepared for college. She has stated that college is much easier than High school was.
I am a junior at Morton High School and overall had a pretty good time here. Morton is ranked the best district in the central Illinois area for many things including academics and safety. And it also ranks as one the best school in Illinois and one of the safest schools in America. The teachers are all very well trained and do their best to ensure every student is ready for whatever they choose to after high school, whether that be a four-year university, a community college, tech school, or going directly into the work force. The people at Moreton High School are very nice and people are easily taken in to new friend groups. Morton is very safe, small town with many great people.
I have been going to Morton since 2nd grade. One of the reasons why my family moved to Morton was for the quality of the education that Morton offers. I am thankful for being able to go to Morton’s schools. I have made so many unforgettable memories and friendships through school. At the The high school, they have clubs and activities to choose from. I am in a couple, but would like more option to choose from. I think that it is hard to have a lot of clubs because the school is smaller compared to other schools. The school’s music education program is my favorite part of the school. I am in the marching band and wind ensemble at the high school. I have been a part of the band program for about 7 years and it has been a great experience.
