Morristown and Beard's historical athletic pennants
Established in 1891

An enduring history of excellence.

Morristown Beard School, established  in 1891, has richly surpassed its 125th anniversary milestone. We celebrate our storied past, honoring those who have shaped this extraordinary school we cherish today. Throughout our extensive history, Morristown Beard School has met the challenges and opportunities of each new decade and responded to prepare our students for leadership. While steadfast in our commitment to the School’s original values, MBS has actively transformed our facilities, academic program, and co-curricular offerings to elevate them to new levels of excellence and ensure that our education remains as relevant as possible. 

In the past decade alone, MBS has renovated every building on campus, installed turf on each athletic field, constructed our spectacular performing arts center, Founders Hall, and built a 25,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Math & Science Center and 8,000 square-foot Center for Innovation & Design. We have reformed our curriculum to emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, independent thought and intellectual risk taking. With vision and purpose, we have also expanded our global outreach programs and embraced the latest technology to meet the evolving needs of our students and faculty.
