All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This is an excellent educational establishment that houses dedicated teachers and ambitious students. The building itself is in wonderful shape and has modernized itself this year with the implementation of their 1:1 program. A program that prepares every single freshmen student for their high school career with a personal iPad. The iPad will follow them all the way to their senior graduation and aid in their educational achievements. Having been a Morton East graduate myself, I'm very proud of its newest technological accomplishment. I loved my time at the Freshmen Center, especially taking Honors Biology with Mrs. Gamboa, and Math with Mr. Migoni, who unfortunately is no longer there:( .

This school is very good, most of all..the teachers are great . My kids came from a catholic school, and teacher helped them to adjust. Maybe the only thing my kids told me was it felt a little bit like a prison, but that is because they do not want any incidents. They are there to learn not to mingle

I was once a student ther eat the Morton Freshman Center when it first open.To me it was alright nothing 'wow' abuot it. But one thing i could honestly say was that the teachers there cared for us and really wanted to see us succeed. The principal was really cool to he stook with us from freshman year all the way to senior year. Overall best start off for High School. Go Mustangs.

The school felt like a prison and I am not over-exaggerating. I recently left this school and entered Morton East and it felt much more freeing. Students are more open to who they are and students have more available clubs, sports, and events to participate in. I'm glad I left Freshman Center.

The school is pretty cool, may not be the best, but at leatst its something. The teachers are really cool they challenge us a lot so we can get more better, and so are their methods they helped me out a lot. The events are really fun just that we rarely get events but at the end it is all worth it :)

The school has decent teachers. There aren't as much electives as i would want there to be. The teachers enforce discipline. The material taught could be more challenging. Overall, it's an okay school, though, not the best.
