Robert Morris Elementary is small neighborhood school located in the Green Ridge Section of Scranton, PA. Nestled in the heart of the Green Ridge business district, Robert Morris Elementary encompasses a partnership of students, staff, parents and community members who work together to provide fundamentally solid educational programs as well as positive social experiences for our children.

The administration, teachers, and staff at Robert Morris aims to provide the necessary lifelong tools to our students in a caring, supportive, and safe environment. Along with strong parental involvement in our school, we also strive to teach our Robert Morris "Rockstar" students to be respectful of others as well as good members of our community. Currently, Robert Morris provides educational services to children from preschool through grade five, as well as Title 1 Reading and Math services and various special education classes.

Robert Morris Elementary is also located within one mile of Marywood University which is the home of a very strong and well respected education department. With this partnership, we are able to take advantage of many tutoring programs and resources that this fine institution is able to provide and it helps us tremendously in helping all of our students show educational growth.
