Mostly young, driven teachers that are devoted to their jobs and love to help the next generation. The education that the students receive is one of the highest in the area with students receiving top scores and great grades. The school is nice and the area is great. My overall experience at Morton was amazing. There are so many clubs, organizations and athletics to keep you busy! The school offers foreign languages and clubs such as FCA and Key club, but there are so many to choose from. The athletics there are great! Many of the teams have gone to state multiple times. Overall, it is a great school with a great staff and great students.

Morton High School is a highly respected school that sets their students up for success. They provided me with a will to do better and the mindset of always accepting a challenge. The school was clean and well kept. Teachers and administration always wanted the best for the students and their workers. Many memories are made while in high school and MHS gives plenty of opportunities to make them. From football games to pep rallies, there was always something going on in the school. MHS focused on having fun and getting the best education around. Not only do they challenge their students but they prepare them for real life situations that go outside the classroom. MHS is a great place to find your interests and to do something with them. There were opportunities everywhere for you to become a better student and person. Academics, integrity, and perserverence are important to MHS. GO POTTERS!!
As a student who works hard and doesn't typically struggle with school, I think Morton High School is great. That being said, students who aren't honors students don't have many resources to help them. Morton is super competitive and has a very independent-learning style and that can leave the stragglers behind. On top of that, teachers who teach standard classes are often newly hired and not as good as the honors teachers. The approach to helping struggling students is often one that encourages the student to work harder, with little to no consideration given to the teaching method under which they're struggling.
Ideal for independent people
