Adolescence is a unique, exciting and challenging time of life. Students at this age are experiencing profound changes – physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually – as they pass through a very special and critical period of their lives. Realizing that the success of students in middle level grades is often the forerunner of success in high school, college and beyond, Morris Intermediate School is committed to ensuring the transition to adolescence is a positive experience by providing students with a caring and supportive school community. In addition, our primary focus is to engage our students in a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum that promotes critical thinking and problem solving. Our mission is to prepare all students for the world beyond Morris by providing a solid academic foundation, as we seek to promote positive self-worth and a sense of responsibility for themselves and others.
