I loved their performing arts program and the many career opportunities they had to offer. The staff cares about the students so much and are very involved. Super supportive and will always have your back. Always thinking of new ways to make the school even better. Once a governor, always a governor!

My experience with Morton High School is nothing special. I feel as though the students at a higher learning level cannot reach their full potential. There are too many students in one classroom, which makes learning "one-on-one" practially non-existent. There is also way too much testing which gets in the way of our learning time. It seems like scholarship promotion is not too strong amongst the school. Like it's kept secret and the school doesn't want the students to find out. It shouldn't have to be that way though. I would like for school to start at least half an hour than our regular time. Students who take AP classes in the morning, especially first hour, find it harder to concentrate while your brain isn't fully awake. Our graduation rate is one of the lower ones amongst the school district. I hope you enjoyed my rating!
Overall, decently nice faculty and a diverse student body. The meals are average compared to other schools, students tend to buy outside food or bring home made lunches. Fights aren’t rare, but there are security guards available to break up any bad situations. Locker checks happen every other month as part of precaution. Morton offers students the chance to be apart of the Performing Arts Academy within the school building and this offers many great arts related opportunities.
