Morristown and Beard's historical athletic pennants
Established in 1891

An enduring history of excellence.

Morristown-Beard School recently marked its 125th anniversary, and we celebrate our storied past and honor those who have created the extraordinary School we know and love today. Throughout its history, Morristown-Beard School has met the challenges and opportunities of each new decade, and responded to prepare our students for leadership. While staying true to its original values, MBS has actively transformed its facilities, its academic program, and its co-curricular programs to bring them to new levels of excellence and ensure that our education is as relevant as possible.

In the past decade alone, MBS has renovated every building on campus, installed turf on each athletic field, and constructed our spectacular performing arts center, Founders Hall. 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.
