I love Morton Ranch! I transferred over from Taylor High School and I thought I would have a hard time adjusting because they are two completely different schools. In reality, I feel that I fit in almost perfectly. The teachers are very caring and genuinely want to hear from us students which makes communicating with them very easy. I am involved in the Athletic Training Program and it is honestly the best. I have had many opportunities to meet new athletes and coaches around the school and they 100% do not disappoint. They also include us and make us all feel like part of the team. Me being a student and constantly trying to engage in student life around the school, I find it very easy to make new friends and get involved in different clubs and organizations. The counselors are the best part for me because I love mine. She is so easy to talk to and very encouraging in helping me with my future plans.

Morton Ranch High School is a very diverse school full of extremely talented and bright kids. As a student who attends this school, I'd have to say I have completely fell in love with it. Students have many chances to get involved with school clubs and activities which make the high school experience even better. MAVERICK PRIDE TILL I DIE!
A great high school full of proud students who strive to be the very best. It welcomes everyone and demonstrates school spirit amazingly. It is the perfect size for a high school campus with great resources. There is something for everyone to focus on whether its the fine arts, academics, sports, or clubs. Morton Ranch High School loves to show its pride with color purple and the hand sign meaning maverick, the school's mascot. It is the best school in all of the KatyISD district. I would not hesitate sending the my future kids there and neither should anyone else!
