My school may not be the perfect school out of Clayton county, but indeed it does have some of the best teachers. I actually feel comfortable in this school because there's a diverse of cultures. & every one is treated equally.

Not a great school. Very much regret putting my kids in this school. I wish I would have known how bad it was before we moved. I am grateful we transferred them.

I attend this school and the staff focuses more on discipline than academics.

I am a former MHS faculty member. During the past 15 years, the school has been plagued with incompetent administrators, low teacher morale and unsupportive parents. Before this, Morrow had excellent, stable administrators, committed faculty members and supportive parents. This resulted in an outstanding student body. Morrow was a great place to teach. It saddens me to think how it has deteriorated. The incompetence in the school system, in general, is dispicable.

I am a formal student of MHS, class of 2005, and my experience was fair. I had teachers who were very helpful and knowledgeable about their subjects. However, the school lacks many classes need to enrich students for graduation. The safety at the school is poor and there is very limited parental involvement. The principal should check-in on active classes more often. But, student progress and grades can be viewed via web and when a student is absent from school a phone call is made. The school also could use some metal detectors during school hours and at the sporting events.

It was questionable whether programs needed to produce student outcomes sufficient for high school levels were employed. The school has had some much needed renovation which has helped. During my child's attendance students were seen standing around the campus during school time obviously not attempting to attend class without apparent redress. A significant number of students do not receive any useful computer training and come out of High School unprepared for college or work. The communications skills, both written and oral, do not seem to improve significantly over those acquired in middle school at this school.

After almost 10 years at MHS, I can honestly say it has gotten worse each year. Students break school rules all the time and nothing happens. The turn over of staff is scary. Not too many veteran teachers left.

I feel that Morrow High School was an excellent school when I went there.I attended MHS from '01-'05 and I was an all A student the entire four years.I am now a full time student at Clark Atlanta University where I am studying education. Many parents talk negative about this school but if you never went there you dont actually know whats going on inside the classrooms. Alot of students ask for help after they have failed and its to late to make it up. I feel that my teachers were excellent and they influenced me to be successful. In my opinion Morrow High School is the best school to attend in Clayton County.

I am truly disappointed in the lack education my children received at the hands of these so called educators. My children have asked on several occasion for assistance with understanding materials and have been pushed to the side with comments like (come back tomorrow) and guess what tomorrow never comes. Displine and how to maintain it well lets ask our never present officer on duty at the school.

MHS gets negative press that is not totally indicative of what goes on there academically. Extracurricular activities are very good. As anywhere else, you have to put something in to get something out. Morrow's biggest problem is that it is over crowded with no releif in sight. Morrow's principal is one of the most caring men I have ever met and he cares for each of his students. For the most part, the entire staff is dedicated to the success of the students. My only regrets about MHS is the number of students there and the lack of parent involvement.

This school is the worst school I've ever attended and I've been to alot of schools. Its over crowded, no-one seems to care, and it's just not a good learning environment if you want a good education. If I had the opportunity to go to a different school I would leave no questions asked. The teachers are slow, the students are so rude and ghetto, and I don't think I have ever seen the principal. But this is my opinion, from the the angry and frustrated student.

Morrow High school is an excellent school. Parents expect teachers to do what they should do for their kids; which is parent them. Students go to school dress inappropriately and parents indulge them. Where are the parents when students leave home. Most parents never attend PTA meetings yet complain that they know nothing about the school. Parents stop expecting teachers to parent your children. This is your responsibility not the school. Most of their behaviors at school disrupt other students and stops the learning parents. I have seen parent at this school cuss out administrators for students discipline infractions. Take responsibility for your kids or stop having kids.

I have volunteered at the school, and still do volunteer, I have kids there. Yes, it is the parent's responsibility to not allow their kids to dress that way, but if they don't then the school should corrected it. I know schools that, if the parents are too sorry to monitor their childs dress, then the school handle it. I have been there when kids walk by teachers with such things on or walk up and talk to teachers and they say nothing.

It is a great injustice for those of you who do not go to this school have the nerve to say what goes on there. I have had the pleasure of volunteering at the school. The facuilty does uphold the dress code. The problem is we (the parents) allow our children to go to that school dressed like they are going to the mall. What is strange we have the audacity to blame the school for our failure to monitor our schools dress. We have a part to play in our childrens education, yet we fall short and blame the school. The people at MHS are trained to educate yet we want them to parent. Fellow parents, step up to the plate. I challenge you to volunteer and actually see what is going on in that school. It is a great school. Be parents so the teachers can teach.

Morrow High School is a great school for many reasons! Did you know for this school year (2003-2004) MHS is the only CCPS school that met AYP? This means that MHS met the Requirements for 'No Child Left Behind'. That in itself says that academically they are meeting standards. Also did you know that MHS has a Social Studies teacher who is the 'Georgia Social Studies teacher of the Year' (Andrew White)? Did you know that MHS will be attempting to address student failures through the creation of a freshman transition program? Did you know that many students received academic and athletic scholarships this past year? The administrative team is great. Nice people.

During the summer of last year I called and spoke to one of the assistant principals at this school. I asked him why is it better that my son come to your school as opposed to another local school. He replied, 'we have wonderful people who care about our children, there is unlimited parent access, although it seldomly used, to the school even to pay a suprise visit to your child, and the administrative team has an open door policy.' I have found that to be a true statement. He also said there is a shared reponsibilty in educating your child. He said I will make sure the atmosphere is conducive, the teachers will teach, your child's responsibilty is to learn and your job will be to make sure he is in the right frame of mind for learning. I agreed. Doing those things has helped my child be successful here.

The current administration of this school are killing this school. One has just to look at the number of highly qualified teachers who are leaving to know it. I wish I could send my son elsewhere. The really sad thing is that the county personnel seem too unconcerned that Morrow High school is lost.
