One team. One town. One family. This phrase, originally painted on an MHS spirit banner, has become a motto for the entire school. MHS students love the supportive atmosphere of the school and community, knowing that “when it comes down to it, people of Morenci will do anything for each other.”
Bulldogs are proud of their “through the roof” school spirit, which comes from learning, growing, and working together as a team. With only 200 students, the high school functions as an extended family. Teachers and staff know and care about every student, and the students know and care about one another. They take pride in one another’s accomplishments and push each other to succeed in and out of the classroom.
Through the years Morenci has been home to award-winning musicians, artists, scholars and athletes. In addition to a full curriculum of core classes, MHS supports special interests through its themed art curriculum, yearbook, and concert, marching and jazz band. To support those students interested in a future in one of the STEM fields, MHS offers Project Lead the Way classes in both engineering and biomedical sciences. Many upperclassmen take advantage of specialized training through the LISD TECH Center with offerings ranging from robotics to agriculture. Others challenge themselves with advanced coursework at MHS (AP and Honors) or dual enroll through a local college.
Non-traditional students may find a good fit with Morenci’s Alternative Education program, which is a flexible, online program utilizing Pearson’s Gradpoint system. Traditional students may also be eligible to take one of the 128 available online courses to recover credit, explore electives or earn AP credit. All students have immediate access to technology in every classroom through a 1:1 Google Chromebook initiative.
Students hoping to get involved have a wide range of clubs and organizations to choose from including Volunteer Club, Math and Science Club, Engineering Club, Green Earth Club (GECKOS), Culture Club, Art Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Qualifying upperclassmen may choose to join National Honor Society and those looking for leadership experience may find it with Student Council.
Bulldog athletes can stay busy all year with highly successful sports teams including cross country (State qualifier ‘15-’16), football (District Champions ‘14-’15), volleyball, basketball (State Runners-up ‘14-’15), powerlifting (State qualifiers ‘14-’15), track (State qualifiers ‘14-’15), baseball (District Champions ‘14-’15), softball (District and Regional Champions ‘14-’15), golf (State qualifier ‘14-’15) and competitive cheerleading.
With so much to offer, it’s easy to understand why students feel their Bulldog Pride sets them apart.
