Thank you for taking the time to learn more about MBS. We know that the process of selecting the right school can be formidable, but we believe it should also be illuminating and exciting, as it gives you and your child the opportunity to reflect deeply on the kind of school experience you would like to have. The goal for the admission team is to learn about each student as a person and a learner. The goal for the family is to discover how MBS will powerfully prepare your student for learning and for life.

We invite you to begin the application. Below you will find details on all aspects of the admission process. If you have any questions please contact the Admission Office at 973-539-3032, ext.516 or admission@mbs.net. We look forward to working with you!
