I am a senior at Morris Hills High School. I’ve had an awesome four years here! I’ve taken many AP and honors classes. These classes are challenging, but they aren’t extremely difficult. Most of the teachers at Hills are very friendly and will go out of their way to help you if you are struggling. MH also offers classes that aren’t as rigorous and offers plenty of electives. I’ve also participated in Morris Hills’ XC/Track program. If you’re into running, I’d definitely join this! The coaching staff are dedicated and passionate about what they do. MH also has a variety of other sports and after school activites to choose from. If you’re passionate about certain social issues, you could join the Pride Club, the Env. Action Club, etc. MH is a great school for everyone!

I loved Morris Hills High School! As an alumni, I loved my experience there as the environment was very welcoming, comfortable, and friendly for me when entering as a freshman. Also, the teachers were wonderful in providing me the best education for college and beyond. I could be myself and no one would say otherwise. The variety of clubs and activities there was another great aspect of the school. I could choose from so many options and there were no limits as to how many you could participate in as long as you maintained your grades. Overall, it was a great high school for me and I do miss it and hope to visit again soon!
I am a senior at Morris Hills High School. I have enjoyed my experience here! Morris Hills has a great administration who cares about their students. Most of the teachers here know what they are doing, and they will go out of their way to help you. If you are interested in clubs and sports, Morris Hills offers plenty of these to choose from. I ran cross country and track for four years at Hills and the coaching staff is passionate, dedicated, and fun to work with. The cross country and track teams also consist of hardworking, fun people to be around! The only downsides about this school are the cafeteria food, and some teachers aren't the best.
