I attended Morse High School all four years, I believe it was a good experience overall because it helped me get to where I am today. The staff was very helpful during my time attending the school and I feel like every teacher I had really wanted to see me succeed. Sometimes it was difficult when it came to having to speak with counselors, I recommend they change that or find ways to speak with kids who need "one on one time". I think being able to speak to someone about life after graduating will be very helpful! Overall, I do not regret attending Morse and I am glad I did, it really produced students who became passionate about pursing higher education!

I enjoyed my time at Morse! My class was awesome. We were a very diverse bunch and we all had our little cliques/groups. However, we got along very well and we were all kind to one another. The teachers were hit and miss. Some teachers really cared for their students and really wanted them to succeed. Others didn't care so much and you could tell were just there for the paycheck. Morse isn't the most well-funded school out there, but we did try and make the most out of what we had. Many teachers did their best to provide the best education for their students with the budget of the school, which I appreciated.
Morse High School is a great school that gets a bad reputation from outsiders. When you get to be at the place for awhile, it becomes like a second home. The teacher said here are the best, they have great personalities, can connect with the students well, and also create a fun learning environment. The school is very diverse with Filipino, Hispanic, African American, Muslim, Chinese, Korean, Andrea many other races found in the student body. The clubs are fantastic and are various, with One World, Red Cross Club, and Environmental Club. The facilities are getting upgraded as I write this. We have a great sports culture, going to football and basketball games are a blast. The college readiness scale is a 3 stars because the counselors do an average job at really preparing the students for college, even though they are great in terms of providing advice and whatnot. Morse High School is great! Go check it out!
