The Community Cultural Event

BSU hosted the 2nd annual Community Cultural Event on March 4,2023. The community was invited, and there were vendors, informational tables, food, music, and performances. This was a great opportunity for Morse High School to reconnect with our community and families.

Morse High School's staff voted for Morse to transition from a 6-period a day traditional bell schedule to a 4x4 bell schedule for the 2023-24 school year.

On a 4x4 schedule, students take 4 classes during semester 1 (Q1 and Q2) and then they take 4 different classes during semester 2 (Q3 and Q4). So instead of earning a total of 12 semester credits for an entire school year, students can earn 16 credits. Classes on a 4x4 schedule are approximately 90 minutes per period instead of approximately 60 minutes on a 6-period day schedule. 

Morse's A 4 x 4 block schedule will allow our students and teachers to receive increased instructional time. Students will be able to concentrate on only four courses per semester. Teachers will be able to work with fewer students during the semester because they typically teach fewer classes and students and teachers can prepare for fewer courses each semester. 

More information to follow.

Sheena Francisco (10th Grade) won the VAPA Spotlight Award for Creative Leadership.

Please congratulate Sheena Francisco!

It is out great pleasure to announce that 4 students from Morse have been selected to be part of the SDUSD Honor Band!


The District Honor Band is an audition-only group comprised of students from all the high schools in the district. Being selected as part of the group is a great honor and gives the students a chance to meet music students from other schools and build lasting friendships.


This is, to the best of our knowledge, the most students that Morse has ever had in the District Honor Band in one season (we didn’t have any audition for the Honor Orchestra this year)!

The students who will be representing Morse this year are:

Anjomar Jocosing – Flute (12th grade)

Jordani Diaz – Clarinet (11th grade)

Casey Apilado – Horn (10th grade)

Dyllan Fernandez – Bassoon (9th grade)


Be sure to congratulate them on the achievement! Especially Anjomar, as he auditioned so well that he is going to be the Principal Flute for the Honor Band! I don’t think any student from Morse has even been placed as a principal player for any instrument before, in band or orchestra; this is a big deal!

Mr. Uhuru, the Restorative Justice Coordinator, has completed the Youth Leadership Program to prepare our students to not only facilitate community circles in classrooms, the students are beginning the foundational work of supporting a positive school culture.


We are in the process of initiating classroom circle co-facilitation implementation with our Youth Leadership Program students.

Twenty-five YLP students are:

Ahmed Althalmi, Naomi Destiny Anisso, Victor Hugo Badillo Jr., Khalif Ahmir Bloome, Dallas Booker, Nichlous Brook, Angelica Campo, Nya Chambers, Jada Angelina Clay, Lovely Florina, Gentry-Thomas, Ariadna Gomez, Therren Jones, Dayna King, Raine Latada, Arianna Nicole Louis, Jera Mae Medina, Evelyn Nahomy Mejia Bonilla, Khalil Mitchell, Azalia Rachel Nava, Xarieya Mitchell, Lord Albert Dano Partosa, Durrell Peru-Jackson, Rocio Alexandra Rendon, DeAndre Young, Yasmine Zufri
