Welcome to Morristown Beard School
Our School Motto, “Ad Astra Per Aspera,” can be translated as “To the Stars Through Adversity,” a phrase that captures the essence of the MBS vision. As the most forward thinking, supportive, and collaborative school in the region, we embrace and meet the challenges of a 21st century education.
Powerfully Prepared for Learning and for Life
“Where else but MBS, where the curriculum gives students ownership over their education both in and out of the classroom, could my peers and I have received a better tutorial on the balance between dreaming and doing?”
MBS Alumna Olivia Land
“At MBS, we have been taught that it is okay to question material and to come to our own conclusions, rather than just consuming others’ opinions. Our classrooms are places where students and teachers alike come out enlightened with new perspectives, challenged to think more, think harder and think differently.”
MBS Alumna Leah Seldin
A Place of Possibilities
We believe in the power of the arts, and encourage all students to participate in the many offerings available – no experience required!
“Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
Strong Inside and Out
In addition to inspiring unity and school spirit for the entire community, numerous championships at the conference, county and state levels, have afforded our athletes opportunities with D1 and D3 colleges and universities across the country.
Morristown Beard School offers a universe of opportunities: academic, artistic, and athletic; curricular and co-curricular. Even more important, we guide and encourage every student to pursue them all.
Emerson has been a valued member of the staff at Morristown-Beard School since 2017.
