I feel like our school is a lot more professional and opportunistic than most schools. Our College Career Academy and "KASH" incentives increase professionalism and all-around happiness in our school. Our school is filled with diversity not only with the students but also with the classes offered. Our school is also different in the activities that the faculty allows the students to plan and take part in. A great example is our Homecoming Week which was all planned by students, yet it was still a professional week of fun, games, and class rivalries. If there was one thing I would critique, it would be the dull and uncreative feel of the school's interior. I understand that Morgan County wants to keep the school looking clean and professional as a College Career Academy should be, I feel that they are somewhat limiting the creativity of students by prohibiting certain methods of expression.

The school overall is mediocre at best. The administration often time doesn’t enforce their own policies, such as the “zero tolerance” bullying policy. I myself experienced bullying here and my bully was simply told, “you shouldn’t bully people. That’s bad” by administration. This school also has a massive problem with prioritizing sports over anything else. Most of their student athletes maintain the very lowest grades possible to continue to play and many of them are even given special academic treatment to be continually allowed to play. Their prioritization of sports also leaves other programs, clubs, and organizations severely lacking in the funding they need. The mental health and safety of their students is clearly not of their concern, the academic standards are low, and the programs which actually prepare students for real world careers are severely underfunded.
Morgan County High School has given me many memories. Memories that I will never forget. As a community and a school, we all came together through hard and good times. My education has grown more and more since I have gone through each year here at Morgan County. The teachers, coaches, and administration are always there when in need. They are the students biggest supporters! I wouldn't trade going to Morgan County High School for anything.
