At MFS, we weave academic rigor with Quaker values to serve a dual purpose: offering uncommon intellectual challenges while also instilling vital emotional and ethical attributes that empower our students.
Our focus on relationships creates conditions for great intellectual daring, remarkably productive collaboration, and courageous perseverance. And our Quaker values impart universal principles of equality, compassion, reflection, and responsibility—which serve students from all backgrounds and belief systems and remain relevant in rapidly evolving times. Our graduates’ minds are primed to be successful by every traditional measure, while their hearts and souls are poised to define success on their own terms—in choices about college, career, and life itself.

Peer Leadership Program
The Peer Leadership program provides seniors with an opportunity to work with freshmen as mentors, helping the ninth grade students with their transition to high school, introducing them to Upper School extracurricular and social opportunities, and discussing moral and ethical issues. The goal is to provide a platform for our older students to model and cultivate positive character traits.

Moorestown Friends School Reviews
However, it can be exhausting. MFS can be difficult for high-achievers experiencing burnout. One thing I will say is that the emotional strain placed on a student to perform may impact their mental health. It can be exhausting to perform out of fear of failure, and the mental health resources are a tad subpar. Our school counselor is a wonderful woman, but ultimately it comes down to "I-know-you're-depressed-but-your-grades-are-good-so-stick-it-out!"
TL;DR: It's a great mix of pre-professional and creative, has amazing resources for all sorts of study and projects, but can be unhealthily competitive.
