As a young alumni of Morton West, I can say that the school has always manintained great facilities, resources, and funding for many various extracurricular and academic activities. Therefore, it is up to the student and parents' encouragements to make use of those resources (i.e computer labs, library, academic clubs like Scholastic Bowl, Model United Nations, and sport teams). It also important that students understand that Morton West is unfortunately filled with an environment of the majority of students who perform academically average or poorly and who may be disillusioned with their future. This, however, will not affect those who want to succeed, because students who follow the most academically advanced curriculum (i.e Advanced Placement Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, History and English) are better prepared academically by teachers, and increase their chances into great universities across the nation (i.e. Harvard, MIT, Stanford, etc), as it has been achieved from Morton West repeatedly.
