Morton has opened my eyes to many things one of those being options. Being Hispanic in an almost all Hispanic school It gets hard to stand out but,the amazing teachers make it easy for you to find a place to speak your voice.

Academics in my school are Okay because we are limited in our college credits. For all for years of high school we cannot pass 22 credits, which is ridiculous because in order to get accepted into a decent college we nee at least 27 credits. Teachers are often encouraging students to work hard because it's hard but no impossible, students can go to college if they try. AP and honors students are offered extra classes in the summer, zero hour (early morning class) or night school however these classes are worth a lot of money and often kids like me cannot offered them.
It's great because students are often involved in sports and clubs. Sometimes students have problem manning sports and school work, and often others stay to pick one or the other. Acceptance is often greatly acceptable people know see everyone as different and unique. Most of the school's ethnic/racial diversity is commonly Latino/Hispanic therefore there is no that many challenges between us for the reason that we share the same culture.
