The honors/AP classes are good. My daughter loves the theater dept and teacher, Ms D!!!!
I love J.S. Morton Sterling West High School because there is a zero tolerance policy, kids are at school to get their education and get college geared. I also love the uniform policy.
Great school for preparing young people for higher education. I especially like the vocational technical aspect which is extremely beneficial for kids desiring to go directly into the work force after graduation.
I love Morton high because it has a lot of spirit and has made my daughter a better student.
I give it a 5 star. The school has plenty of extracurricular activities for its students to keep them motivated
My kids go there and as long as the student had the best teachers there and my kids were involved in many after school activities.
My oldest son graduated from Morton West an this year my youngest son will graduate from Morton West.
I have attended the PTO meetings at Morton West. Over three thousand students attend this school, but only three or four parents make the effort to support the school through participation. There are more teachers at these meetings than parents! The teachers work hard, many of the students want to learn, but where are the parents? What makes charter and private schools work is parental involvement. Why have so many parents given up on their children, then blame the school when the student goes astray? It's time the parents did more than simply complain.
Morton is a terrible school. i went there freshmen year, then transfered to LTHS, It was great at LT, my senior year i transfered back to morton and it was a nightmare. worse than it was my freshmen year. they treat students like middle school kids. the uniform is there number one priority. they care more about unforms than they do the grades and whats important. the deans are rude, the secuirty is rude. there are some teachers that a nice. asome that dont care. and some that are angry at the world. morton needs a tune up.
In the begining when my son was a freshman he was so excitement to be into all the sports. After the second year his excitment went down the drain. The guidance at this school is a joke!!! I am ashamed to tell people what school my son attends because there is nothing good to say about it!!! If I could afford to send him to a private school I would... I pay too much for taxes on my home that leaves no extra for a private school. I will not give up on my child because his school district has.
The school is a joke . They focus way more on enforcing dress code and rules rather than actual education . Test scores are ridiculous . And the school is now drilling into the ground with the new budget cuts beginning next year . Would much rather attend a school that actually makes me want to learn and get my education rather then one full of teachers that put shame on you for grades and test scores (does not even apply to all students) . Ummm try a little bit more involvement and encouragement !
Morton West needs to concentrate more on studies and less on so-called discipline. With reading, science and math scores so low, Morton teachers and administrators should be ashamed.
I have three children attending. The teachers are wonderful and the curriculum is improving. My children enjoy going to school. That's what is important. I do wish there was more parent involvement
I graduated from this school years before my children started attending, and I am so happy that the curriculum has improved. The teachers are very involved with the students, and have been very helpful to us parents in keeping us informed of our kids' progress.
this is a good school i love it you learn a lot never wanted to leave. great curriculum good teachers i love it
This school needs some tidying-up seriously. If the teachers were much more encouraging to each student they would not have any problems with test scores or grades. The teachers are suppoed to set the example so do it!!
I loved Morton! not only was I a great athlete there and a student but I went off to play college sports and recieved amazing amounts of educational scholarships all thanks to my hard work and the help and passion of the teachers there. i loved the school so much I'm comming back to be a part of the staff!! Go Mustangs!!
As a former student, I believe that high school is what you make of it. If you go to school and get your work done, you will get a quality education. I graduated with a 4.2 GPA and I now attend DePaul University. I did very well for myself and I have the awesome teachers at Morton to thank. Students just need to shape up and stop acting like little babies. Morton is NOT a bad school! They wouldnt have to enforce rules if the students just followed the dress code. Teachers REALLY care here! Morton is very underrated!
