    "What I love about Morton is that most of my AP teachers were on task towards all the lessons they taught. What I would like to see change in is the facilities and the school environment such as adding AC's because it gets really hot in the summer."

    "I did not like this school. Most of the teachers are not up to standard and there is a huge push to sign students up for AP classes, even if they cannot handle it. If a student cannot handle the AP class once they are in it, there is no way to get out of it! If you drop they give you a big fat F...even if all you want to do is transfer to a more appropriate class for your level. The use of uniforms is ridiculous and takes away students individual expression. They treat the students like cattle and not like human beings...they talk down to students instead of treating them like what they are...YOUNG ADULTS! High school students are just a step away from being adults, and they should be treating students with the same respect that they treat other adults. I did have some very good teachers, but can count them on one hand. This school needs a lot of work, a complete change in the atmosphere to foster learning and acceptance and a retraining of staff."

    "Although there are many wonderful teachers, the administration prioritizes some people over others. This becomes very evident while trying to gain support for clubs and organizations not involving sports. Also, many student are forced into AP classes even though they lack the resources to achieve in those classes. It's incredibly difficult to switch out of those AP classes because we are considered the AP district. I believe it is setting some student up to fail. The last reason I gave Morton West only 2 stars is the grading system!! The system gives tests and essays the most weight in the grade book, it causes a student's grade to drop almost a full letter gfade if they do poor on a common assessment."

    "I loved this high school. Recently in the past three years it has improved. I believe this is due to the change in administration and the induction of a new principal. The new principal outs a significant emphasis on achievement and is making the school a better place to learn."

    "The school only cares about its athletes. The arts are not valued much or payed very much attention to. However the school does offer many AP classes, and does have some nice teachers."
