The community at Morse High School is what can only be described as a mixed bag. A majority of the teachers are talented in their occupation, and by the end of your high school experience they feel just as much like friends as they do advisors. That being said, a few lack expertise in their subject and the skills to properly engage the student body. Said student body includes some of the most wholesome and intelligent students you could ever meet, to a populace of rude, crude, and unmotivated individuals. Morse High School is all what you make it, a student willing to excel in the classrooms here will, but a student who isn't willing to pick up a pencil will find it much harder to receive a quality education.

The community at Morse is amazing, not only are the teachers great but they really care about you and what they're teaching. They want you to do well after high school and many of them do whatever they can to get you on that path. Not only that but most people who have gone / go to Morse High School know that we take great pride in our school. I have never had such a great experience with the schools I've gone to in the past and they really bring the light out of you and help you find things you really love.
The spirit and attitude of the faculty and staff at Morse High School made me feel as though Morse was my home. There are diverse classes offered, including many advanced placement courses, thus giving students the opportunity to challenge themselves academically and receive college credit. Teachers go above and beyond to offer support outside of class in order to make sure their students are successful. The culture of Morse makes everyone proud to be a Shipbuilder and attributes to MHS having one of the largest alumni base in the country. This alumni support allows hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships to be given to the graduating class every year. Morse truly goes above and beyond to make sure their students can achieve their dreams, during and beyond high school.
