    Sports & Fitness: The number one thing they pride in is football. All the other sports get taken lightly with little funding.

    Teachers: There are very few teachers that care about you and helping you succeed. Most of them just do what they have to do in order to get a paycheck.

    Administration & Policies: They have a "zero tolerance" policy for fighting. That policy may sound good but it's not. In some cases, there is a person that gets bullied by another person and the first person ends up getting beaten up and anyone in that position is going to try to defend themselves. With the school policy though if you fight back, even if it is to protect yourself, you get suspended as well.

    Extracurriculars: The only good after school activity that seemed interesting to someone like me was the weight room. It was very small but it helped a little.

    Health & Safety: Morgantown High School isn't a very safe school. There are tons of drugs and fights yet it seems like the staff doesn't care. There aren't security measures to get into the school. If someone wanted to get in that wasn't suppose to all they would have to do is go to the side door. The only doors that locked was the main doors by the office. There aren't enough security cameras to catch half of the stuff that goes on in that school.
