On Food: The food options were okay.

On Resources & Facilities: MHS is a very old school and they have tried replenishing it by adding a new set of lockers but it was only for one hallway for freshman and not seniors who either doubled up on lockers or couldn't even get them unlocked or were just never assigned one. The bathrooms are terrible.

On Educational Outcomes: My dad, sister, and two brothers have gone to college and have successful jobs. They had already prepped me for the real world even before I hit high school.

On Overall Experience: I would choose Morgantown High School again because there are a vast majority of AP/Honors classes available to students. And the education system isn't taught at a fast pace where it would be easy to fall behind.

High School Junior

On Overall Experience: I love this school. It does have its faults, to be sure, but I wouldn't trade MHS for the world.
