Morton Ranch is a good school.l and it certainly gets the job done in terms of getting your education. I personally liked my teachers over there because they are really helpful if students reach out to them and they are really caring about students education as well. The school is very diverse, you have students from many different places coming together and making friendships with each other, and that's always good! In terms of getting you ready for college, there is a ton of more reading in college than in highschool, and most highschool clases don't require much reading unless you are taking a Dual Credit or AP class. And some teachers in college will not tell students what notes to write to prepare you for exams, students must decide for themselves what notes are important and what's not during their lecture. Overall it's a good school, and I enjoyed my 4 years over there!

I have attended Morton Ranch High School since the beginning of sophomore year. Having moved, I was worried about getting settled down in a new environment, especially since high school itself is already a place that takes adjusting to. Fortunately for me, I moved to a school that made the obstacle an easy one. I came across the type of teachers that truly care about not only teaching, but also the well being of their students. My teachers created excitement in me to attend school and present my best work. I was able to excel in courses initially believed I would have struggled with. In continuation, the student body was united. I was able to make many friends and become a more outgoing person. My confidence grew which resulted to me becoming more interactive than ever. I have even landed the position of Historian for FBLA! MRHS has created a much more enjoyable school experience for me through the support given by the amazing staff and my fellow classmates.
Morton Ranch High School has been an overall great experience for both my Junior daughter and now Senior son. Their band program is exceptional! The opportunities at this school as amazing. From football and band to Honor Society, Big brother/sister program, sign language, teen leadership and so much more. The only downfall is how crowded it has been during the last years but now that a new High School has been added to the district it should lessen the crowds. And also, amazing teachers who truly care about the kids!
