AboutLetter From The Principal

Welcome to Morton High School!

Thank you for visiting the Morton High School website!  While you are here, please take time to peruse the valuable information that is found throughout the site.  Our goal is to provide comprehensive information about MHS and all of the great things that happen here.

Our students, staff, administration, and Board of Education work hard to fulfill the Commitment to Excellence of the district.   From our CTE courses to dual credit and AP courses to our core curriculum, we offer a wide variety of courses designed to help our students be successful in their post-high school plans.  In addition, we provide each student an iPad.  With their personal devices, students and teachers have been able to modify and redefine what happens in the classroom to enhance student learning.

In addition to our academics, MHS offers opportunities for involvement, no matter what your interests.  We field a wide range of athletic and academic teams, including a state champion math team and marching band as well as several varsity athletic teams that have competed at the sectional and state level.  If competition isn't your thing, we also have several service organizations and involvement opportunities including Student Council, Key Club, Interact, National Honor Society and Circle of Friends.   Well over two-thirds of our student body take advantage of one or more of the opportunities for involvement.

Morton High School is a special place.  I am very proud of our students, staff, parents and community and invite you to join the MHS Family.  Welcome!!
