The Robert Morris Elementary School Family envision a partnership of students, staff, parents, and the community working together to provide a nurturing, challenging and safe school environment. We are dedicated to ensuring that all children are guided toward achieving individual excellence, appreciating human value, contributing positively to a changing world, and becoming life-long learners.

      Robert Morris Elementary has served the Green Ridge Section of Scranton since 1895. Two additions were added to the original structure, one in 1926 and the other in 1966. In 2003 the grounds around the school were landscaped the playground was resurfaced. 
     The entire faculty and staff are committed to providing an environment were they can meet your child’s academic, physical, social and emotional needs. Robert Morris is a special place where children are cared for and nurtured.
