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 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.
This institution is a very accomplished academic-focused school, however this laser focus on academics typically led to issues. There was little to no concern for how the students were mentally handling themselves, with workloads being excessive many nights of the year. However, there are plenty of amazing faculty members who shine through in the area of helping students succeed.
