Headmaster Caldwell has made MBS a top premier independent private day schools in NJ. MBS has made big improvements: 2007-new athletic center, 2008-new middle school,2009-new auditorium,2011-new tech center, 2013-new turf field and 2017-new 25,000 sq. ft math/science building. MBS has become one of the most beautiful, updated and technologically advanced private day schools in NJ. MBS has a strong academic curriculum. Great sports. The majority of teachers maintain advanced degrees and are very supportive of the students. MBS has a very collaborative environment. The students are happy and the school always maintain a very positive vibe! School spirit is incredibly strong with CRIMSON Pride! Matriculation continues to expand and MBS students attend some of the most prestigious universities in the nation. It has been a wonderful experience for my children. Best choice we made as parents in providing our children with a solid base for a strong and successful future.
Review The Morristown-Beard School
Morristown-Beard School is truly a fantastic educational institution of higher college prep learning that provides our child with a challenging academic curriculum through dedicated and focused teachers in a moral, ethical, inclusive, empathetic, compassionate, integrity based environment. My son is not only recieving a solid academic foundation, especially in the math and science arena, that will help him realize his full potential as a student and achieve success in college in the coming years but MBS is also providing a solid foundation for the type of young man we are trying to raise him to be in the world. The kids that graduate MBS do so with the knowledge, dedication and focus to be the leaders of tomorrow!
There are so many great things about MBS - the people (students, parents, coaches, teachers and administration) are like a big family and classes, teachers, sports program and arts programs are awesome. There is so much to do between all of the clubs and activities. In academics, you can follow your passion and MBS provides state of the art tools to excel. Another area that I think MBS is great and I really enjoyed was being able to participate in the global studies program which allows students (starting in middle school) to travel to various countries for humanitarian and education enrichment. These trips were very special to have the opportunity to experience multiple cultures with my friends while at MBS. Memories of a lifetime!
