Good curriculum offered for students who want to succeed in life. Solid foundation for learning and great social development opportunities for those who enjoy volunteering. Dance, band, fine arts, accelerated learning and athletics are great avenues for all to get involved.

My daughter attended this school and I was very pleased. We moved from Detroit, we're the school system was having many problems. The teacher her took there time with my daughter, and kept me up on her progress throughout her time here. She choice to move back home her last yrs and a half left, which I didn't want to accept, but I was glad she had the foundation here in a Katy district school system. Both Morton Ranch High and Jr High. Thanks to Ms. Cruz, Mr. Lee and most of all my daughter favorite teacher of all Ms. Sparkes. She made time for my daughter and took great pride in her work. Ms. Sparkes is my number one teacher of the decade.

As a parent of a student who attended Morton Ranch High School and a student who will attend next year, I can say that this is a great school. Teachers and parents are involved. And my son was able to get into college due to the academic preparation from Morton Ranch.

I was a student at this school. With that being said, I really loved going here. If you're looking to get automatically accepted into a University of your choosing, this is definitely a school where the standards for top 8% were fairly achievable (I was just out of it by the time I had to send in transcripts), but as long as you try your best, anything is possible. A lot of our great teachers actually left the school to go to Tompkins or other schools around the state or country, but the management is still great and I'm sure the replacements (who were among the teachers that I had over the years) are very well suited to teach the AP courses that lost their respective teachers. The fine arts program is outstanding and improving every year! The only thing that I did not like were the students there. Beyond the AP students and fine arts students, the rest of them were incompetent and very rambunctious, fighting on almost a monthly basis. They also clogged the halls periodically, which is problematic with strict teachers who do not know how to compromise. Otherwise, superb school! Sports were great too. Football team is not 1-10 like they used to be!

Morton is a great school to attend. The teachers always contact parents to let them know about the students success. The football program is great as well. The environment is very entertaining here

My children are 2011 and 2013 graduates of MRHS. Their teachers had great command of the content being taught, effective and engaging teaching skills, and a sincere interest in their students. The AP program was rigorous, but the the AP test scores were worth it! Their music program is outstanding! Directors for both band and orchestra have done exceptionally well. Both of my children were accepted to the college of their choice. Great teachers prepared them for academic challenges to come! We are so grateful for their time and talents dedicated to the students here.

i was a student here and graduated class of 2012. the only good things about this school core education wise is the english and social studies division...things we learn in math and science are just some of the things we dont need to know and if a student falls even a little behind in either of these subjects the student will most likely fail the grading period... The school waste to much money on things that are not needed within the sports program like the money to change the morton ranch symbol it cost more for the new prints then the old so the wasteful spending for unneeded changes take money away from the fine arts program making it so the students must use old worn down instruments and limiting the amount of supplies to less then the bare minimum... i was an athlete but it was just unfair how the school focused more on trying to beat Katy high school in sports then focus on what the students wanted or needed...

I'm a Morton Ranch High proud parent, my son has 1 more year until he gradutates. I have seen a hugh difference in certain high schools with children and teachers these days. Teachers at Morton Ranch High (Teachers with Katy ISD) have one thing on their mind and that's to educate our children. Best Teachers / Band Directors / Assistances and Principal that I have ever communicated with regarding my sons education.

Morton Ranch was four of the best years of my life. I had the most amazing teacher's that really prepared me for college and just my future. I have so many memories at Morton Ranch and am so thankful that I had an amazing high school!

I am currently a Junior (it's the 2008-2009 school year as I write this). I think this school is excellent. I've had troubles, but all were addressed quickly. My counselors are all very wonderful people and I will certainly miss them after graduating in 2010. When compared to other schools, there is actually very little drug use, violence and other random 'bad things'. I recently moved to Katy from L.A., and I have come to find that Texas is a very welcoming state, and so are the students and staff of MRHS. I love it here, not only in Texas, but in Morton Ranch.

Im a Sophmore at MRHS, and have moved around from school to school throughout my academic career. I feel that Morton is a really great school and has given me many oppurtunities. It is one of the best schools I have been to. Mr. Cammarata is a good principal and is always in the hallways being friendly to the students and trying to get involved. I feel secure in my school, and although it is getting slightly crowded, I think we are getting along just fine. And yes, i am not going to lie, there are drugs, fights, gangs, and different temptations, but it would be way worse in any other school or state, you can trust me on that one, but as long as we as students are sure of ourselves it should not be a problem. As for the teachers, most of them are great. I love my school.

I have a senior in MRHS and I don't have any complaints. I've always addressed my concerns to faculty/staff when needed and I've always been helped. Great school.

My child attended MRHS 9th grade and part of his soph.year.We decided to withdraw our child and enroll in a charter school. A few teachers tried to help, but explained that they had over a hundred students each day and could only do so much. Tutoring before and after school along with private lessons were no help.The counselors did not take it upon themselves to address our childs needs. Our child 'fell through the cracks'. I persisted with e-mail and calls for someone to help. Only 1 teacher replied and did try. We did make the choice for him to attend a charter school.Hopefully MRHS will open their eyes and give aid to students who need help at the 'FIRST' signs of a problem.

I don't believe this is one of the best schools. The education is good but the kids are not concerned about. I'm not saying its a horrible school its just not one of the best.

My daughter is a sophomore and my son will be a freshman next year. We haven't had any concerns about safety and the education is great. Thanks to a failed bond, the school is extremely crowded and will be that way for another year, but I have been in the hallways during class changes and felt perfectly safe. I've also been at various sporting events and, again, never felt threatened. Sure there are drug issues, but all high schools have them. Sure the crowd is a little rough, but they've always been respectful to me. I believe that MRHS does a great job with a few difficult situations.

Our two sons attend MRHS - one is a junior and the other a sophomore. My daughter will attend as a freshman next year. We have been very impressed with this school. The teachers are outstanding and truly care about their students academics and their safety. Neither of our boys have ever had any type of safety issues and feel secure in this school. MRHS is a great addition to the Katy High Schools!

My child went here as a freshman and I would have to say this isn't one of the best schools. the kids are way out of control and there are many fights and issues for a school that is so new. The teachers don't try and stop anything. There learning skills at this school would be the only good thing I have to say there is.
