This is a phenomenal high school! I have 2 kids there now: 1 is a senior, the other is a freshmen. The teachers are great, caring, and involved with the students. If you want to assess the health of the school, do like I have done, and drive by nearly any time of the day and you will see students and teachers there. Am not talking about kids hanging out looking for trouble. Am talking about kids who are in sports, clubs, plays, marching band, chorus, and other clubs that keep them at school by choice. There is diversity and a range of socioeconomic factors at play in case you thought otherwise. The respect each other and get along. I love this school!

Morris Knolls is an amazing school to develop into a young adult. The course load can be quite rigorous, but well worth the effort. The teachers that my son had the opportunity learn from are in my opinion "superior." He always felt that there was a good support system. He was involved in all aspects of the school including the athletics and chorale. Again "superior." While my son succeed at his pace, my daughter is now suceeding in her own way! The school supports all students and their endeavers! I will miss Morris Knolls when my daughter graduates!

Some of the faculty is really good. The athletic department is the strongest. Discipline seems to be the major emphasis of the administrators (most of whom has a PE background). This place is a revolving door for teachers. My child had 3 different teachers in one year in history. That department appears to be the most problematic in terms of teacher retention. Foreign language is also very weak.

Excellent school, dedicated teachers who go above and beyond to help students succeed. I'm talking about teachers who show up early in the morning 6AM on their own time to review with their students for special exams, teachers who provide fresh cooking breakfast to their students prior to special exams ( they cook it too ), teachers who on maternity leave find time to meet with their students at the local library to review class materials to make sure their students do well, and follow up to make sure the covering substitute is doing a good job with her students. Excellent quality of guidance administrative, and teaching leadership. Many opportunities for student involvement in leadership and extracurricular activities.Morris Knolls is a top high school in the state of NJ.

Morris Knolls is flat out the best high school in the state of New Jersey. If you have ever attended Morris Knolls you would know what I mean. From teachers, to the students, to the sports, nothing in New Jersey beats the quality of those categories in this state. Great job to the staff of Morris Knolls, you guys are the best! Go Golden Eagles!

This school is pretty good. The teaching, the athletic program (especially football!), and the arts are especially good. The only thing i would advise you to look out for is you valuables. Lock everything up if you are leaving it out. I went to football practice once, and left my backpack in the locker room, right outside my locker. I come back from football practice, and my cell phone was stolen right out of my backpack. 2 Other peoples phones were stolen that day as well. Along with some ones jeans, some ones gold necklace, some ones wallet with his atm card in it. I would advise you to lock everything you value up, or i promise you, it will be stolen.

I had tons of fun in Morris Knolls!! This school has a lot to offer students academically and interactively. Knolls has a great athletic program, as well as many other clubs to join. Morris Knolls is filled with easy going kids and a wonderful staff. This school has a friendly environment, but i guess for others school is only as good as you make it.

I disagree that the school is racial. Both of my children are hispanic and have shined in this school. You are expected to work hard and meet challenges and they dont cut you slack just because you are not caucasian. Everyone is equal here. Dont expect special treatment. Lovely school. A+ rating

i think its a very racial school. The students in the school are treating differently if they are not white. I think they should pay more attention to the students, and how they react toward other students.
