Mr. Ben Cline, Principal

I am the proud principal of Morrisville Elementary School. Go Mustangs! Prior to serving the Morrisville community I served as a school leader and educator at Alston Ridge ES, Holly Springs ES, and River Bend ES in Wake County Schools, as well as in Cumberland County.

I believe that Morrisville will be a nurturing and supportive learning community, and a model for exceptional growth and achievement for every child. I believe that our families are critical to our success, and look forward to partnering with you to continue our success!  

A proud native of Canton, OH(IO!) and graduate of Youngstown State and North Carolina State Universities, I am the father of two elementary-age students in Wake County, husband to an amazing WCPSS middle school teacher. I love college football, gardening, spending time with my family, and being a part of our awesome school community! If I haven’t met you yet, I can’t wait to welcome you the next time you come to Morrisville Elementary School!
