The teachers are amazing! They are so nice and caring and are usually strict to when it comes to learning, of all the classes I've taken all my teachers have care about each student's performance, outside of the classroom it can get a bit crazy but the 4 vice-principals and the principal walks around the school constantly making sure all students are where they're supposed to be. The principals do join in on parent-student-teacher conferences and give suggestions and make sure everything is doing well for the student. The counselors also take very good care of the class they are assigned too, and they are so helpful and know every student. Would recommend to any incoming students 10/10

Morgantown High School has a very professional organizational culture. This school prepares students with life readiness skills. Morgantown High has a very diverse group of students and staff. Athletics, academics, and the arts are extremely important to it’s identity. What I would like to see change at Morgantown High School is the reconstruction of the very old parts of the building. With no air conditioning or heat during harsh conditions can be distracting from education. Countless times, I can recall the structure of the building disturbing classes and the attention of its students and staff.
Morgantown high school so far has been an amazing experience and a journey. We were voted the best school in 2017 and 2018 in West Virginia. Morgantown provides not only a friendly environment but an environment that fits every culture. I have never attended a school with as much diversity as Morgantown provides, Our teachers and staff as well. We have many school clubs and groups for these different cultures as well. Being an African American that is what I will alwyas remeber Morgantown high school for, especially in today’s society I think it is very important that everyone feels comfortable and safe in their school. The teachers are so welcoming and willing to do anything and everything for their students. The teachers provide extra help on their planning periods as well, these sessions are called “ labs”. We have math lab, writing lab, science lab and a foreign language lab.I wouldn’t want to attend any other high school!
