Morris Community High School is a unique school in that we have immense school spirit for such a small town. Growing up and watching my older sibling go through high school showed me how much of a great experience it would be. However, I will be blunt. Our mascot, Redskins, is controversial and should not be taken lightly, although it is due to my town's fanatic obsession with the football team. Traditional parents and faculty continue to support this racist portrayal of an "inspiring character" because they do not realize the outdated and offensive nature of its caricature. Not to completely disregard what I have already typed, but I still do believe Morris Community High School has a great community and great people that make up the faculty and student body. Though we may be behind in our societal correctness, I hope in the future we will grow as an inspiring and powerful school that leads students in the right direction both educationally and morally.

It is a very good school which has a good support of academics and future learning. In my opinion, it is very much like other schools in that it has its good parts and bad parts. The statement as I said before remains the main benefit of the school. However, I have had some teachers that don't fully explain the concepts they are trying to teach or they don't provide the work environment required to be successful. My fellow students for the most part were very kind and supportive for work. I advise this school to anyone who wants to advance their academic career.
As a Junior, High School doesn't worry me as much as it did when I first walked through the halls as a freshman. Morris Community High School is an extraordinary place. It creates a warm environment that invites students to want to learn. Every High School has its ups and downs, especially morris. Some days would be awful, where everyone would just be so angry. Other days would be wonderful, like Fridays. Football Fridays are the base of our school. Every student thrives off of them. My highlight of every fall semester would be FNL. It would be the cherry on top of the week, to know that football Fridays are just around the corner.
