I am currently a Junior at Morse-Marshall. Yes Morse has its ups and its down but if you look closely at the kids who are succeeding with such a bright future you can see the quality of education being shown. It's not teachers that "give" grades to students, a student must "earn" his or her grade. If the student is failing there is tutoring available however the student must be willing to work, patient, and ask for help when needed. I see many of my peers that are impatient, lose their temper, and etc. But many of my friends are top ranked in the school (i am currently ranked in the top 10), we have teachers who care, it's the student that does not "care" for his or her grade until they are failing. Many kids just want to be cool and become popular, this is their down fall, they care so much about popularity, their image, and etc. that they let it get in the way of their own education. I am a student that proves that you can be smart and popular! I have many friends and many friends i can truly trust with my life. A student just needs to commit to the hard-work, accomplish a general goal, and most importantly to have a motivation for success.

This by far is the worse school I've ever experienced. I should have know by the police they have posted around the school on the first day. My child is constantly taunted, teased, bullied and things seem to have gotten worse after speaking with principals and the other kids parents. My child even told me that when she tried to tell the teacher, the teacher told her she didn't want to hear any drama and not to bring it in her class. That's the one my child should trust right?? It's too late to switch schools now, believe me I tried. Only a few months left and this school has definitely made me an unbeliever in MPS. We're taking our business to a Christian school. I don't even think some of these kids get old fashioned discipline or home training. I LOVE MY CHILD TOO MUCH TO KEEP HER HERE!!

I Think Others Should Know That This Is An Awesome School Because They Have A lot Of Stuff For The Kids To Do. What I Like About The School Is That There's Not A lot Of Drama And We Have A lot Of Enroll Kids. Our School Could Improve More By Letting The Kids Have Fun While Learning

Samuel Morse Middle School Is a good school; the staff is pretty strict, but they do it so we can be taught better. Samuel Morse has gotten the U.S Blue Ribbon Award Every year since 1997 - 2006 and 2008. Apart from that, Dr. Onick Rogers was once again named the Best Principle Of The Year; thanks to the Department Of U.S. Education. Now, I do agree that Morse does have students that fight, but just because a few students decide to waste their time on fights that has no point to it, doesn't mean that Morse overall is a bad school. I, at least, make sure not to waste my time; Dr. Onick tells us that we are at school to get an education, not to socialize. This is a great school; I am proud to be part of the class of '09, by far, the most outstanding classes!!!

Samuel Morse Middle School has gone downhill, dramatically. Coming from a student who just graduated from there this year after 3 years (2004-2007), this school is just like any other public school when it comes to behavior. The majority of students there are there for the fun, the popularity. Yes, the teachers there are very professional, but unfortunately they do most often spend there time disciplining kids, but none the less the teachers are what make Morse different from other MPS schools. But the pressure of peers who are constantly disturbing the atmosphere and making another peer's day difficult can take a toll on them when its time to pay attention.

Morse has gone downhill significantly in the past four years. We had our older child at Morse in from 2002-2004 and the school was much better. Discipline problems are much greater in the classes our younger child now attends. Teachers are having to spend too much time disciplining unruly students. They even have incidents where past students try to come back to the school to 'get' current students - which cause security lockdowns of all students. The learning environment at Morse is essentially shot.

I was a student at Samuel Morse About 3 years ago. Dr. Onicks the administrators and the teachers always helped me and my peers strive for the best. The enviroment was one in which I felt safe and comfortable. Samuel Morse is a school in which your child will be held up as The Best of The Best, withthis state of mind every student in Morse is guarenteed to suceed and move on to the next phase in their life. -Tersetta Gilpin-Morgan

When my twin sons first came to Samuel Morse I was very nervous about the transition and if this educational institution would be equipped to handle their special needs. I am proud to say that the Dean Kennis the 6th grade principal has been great with working with my boys as well as myself. She makes sure that they stay on task and is willing to help them no matter what the issue is big or small. The teachers are pretty good I do have to remind all parents looking into any school 'What you put in is what you will get out' Over all I am very happy of the decisison that I made. I am very satisfied with what I see. Children are childern here. The Halls are clear when they are suposed to be clear and I Know my boys are safe while they are learning.

Samuel Morse Junior High School is a very great facility The teachers are great, the academics are are rigerous and the principle is the best in the nation. Dr.Onick expects the best from the students and that is what they give. I must say that dicipline is low. There are many fight cause by the current eighth grade students of the 2003-04 students. These students get thier work done and they are very manerable, but they don't seem to get along. Other than those minor problems the school is great.
