    "It really bothers me when people talk bad about Morton East. Yes, the school is old, it's not in the best of neighborhoods and a lot of the kids don't give a care about their education. The teachers however care about the students and really try hard to provide them with a good education and learning environment. If you really try hard and take the opportunities given to you by this school, you can go places. It's all about how you as a student, decide to perform. Amazing school overall. If you're a student you know that the school is in desperate need of AC though (it get's REALLY hot, it's basically an oven in the summer)."

    "This is a legitimate school. Offers what it can and is enough four our community. We may seem like trash to other people and schools but we at least work hard, I guess your snotty college preps don't teach you the value of honest and true hard work and desire to push ahead. I love being a mustang!"

    "when i was freshman parents would often tell my mom to transfer me from school. and although some were right the problems that i was going to face through out highschool most students face at any high school morton east is not a bad school often people say theres too much fights but where arent they? theyre is alot of teen pregnacy but that also happens so often now in days. theyre is alot of hispanics but that doesnt stop them from going to college. makes them toughen up and trhive for what they want.. it might not be a 5 star high school but it depends how u perceive it... it would be great if they remodeld it, the building is kinda old and it is overcrowded..as i said it depends on the students.."

    "As a former student of Morton East knows that this school is a very good school. What you take from it is all up to you! there is no bad school you yourself makes a school bad when you dont try! I had the best teachers and yes the neighborhood is'nt the best but i would never trade in my experience for a school in Beverly Hills! Just know what you get in life is what you put into life! The more you study the more likely you will have an enriching life! Morton east will always have a special place in my heart!"

    "grows more? as far as i know this school is ghetto as hell and really poor. half of the students in this school only go there to sell drugs, 90 % of the students are hispanic , half of that 90% dont have papers so even if they graduate from high school they cant continue their edu by going to college because their illegal....also theres always fights, not that many students graduate on time, and in every other class there's a preggo. alot of the teachers give up on their students their football team sucks, how many times have they won? ...the students from theater got their own teacher fired because of their bad behaviour in some field trip, and now if you fail a class you have to pay to take it again. students are always pulling the fire alarm for the fun of it, n the school is literally over crowded...oh n theres been a few bomb threats as well....sooo...yeah i dont recommend this school at all."
