The district serves the city of Berwyn, the town of Cicero, and the villages of Lyons and Stickney. A small section of McCook also lies in the district boundaries. The school district is named after Julius Sterling Morton, Grover Cleveland's Secretary of Agriculture during his second term, who is best known for founding Arbor Day.
