Experiential Learning

Our Centers for Learning create opportunities for meaningful teacher-student engagement.

Decades of academic research highlight the importance of both meaningful teacher-student engagement and highly experiential learning in the intellectual growth of young people. Accordingly, Morristown-Beard School has thoughtfully created three Centers for Learning to best engender the high-level development of several essential skills in your child.

The Center for Innovation & Design

Opened in 2019, the Center for Innovation & Design (CID) provides more than 8,000 square feet of flexible and innovative space where students design, build, and problem solve as they engage in multidisciplinary projects.

Dr. Owen Boynton, Director of The Center for Innovation & Design, explores the approach to learning and problem-solving that inspired the Center in the first place: Design Thinking.

See just how the CID space will be utilized to give new range and depth to work across disciplines at MBS, while also encouraging students to pursue passion projects of their own.
