Morris Hill

Welcome to

Morris Hill Elementary has been the home of the Panthers since 1957. We are one of four elementary schools on the army military installation of Fort Riley, Kansas. We recently earned the National Blue-Ribbon Award for Academic Excellence. What makes Morris Hill unique is the supportive relationships we build among ourselves, our students, and their families. When families call or visit our school they are welcomed with open arms. The trusting relationship established from the beginning helps create a path for success. Morris Hill has received several accolades over the years and when asked what makes us so successful it comes down to the relationships we build with our students and their families.
