Academic Rigor and Innovation

Each Middle School class suspends its normal activities for a portion of the year to offer your child a mini-semester (a “mini-mester”) on financial literacy.
In this Upper School program, students are given frequent opportunities to write and think more critically and creatively and engage more deeply in their learning.
The Upper School offers courses that equal or exceed Advanced Placement (AP) courses as rigorous alternatives to the standardized AP curriculum.
This Middle School program fosters an awareness that classroom learnings have a place in the world at large.
MBS Centers for Learning
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 Academic Writing helps your child embrace the writing process, learning to appreciate writing as a tool for inquiry while experimenting to find her or his voice on the page.
Throughout their school experience, MBS students receive support and instruction from the Center for Teaching & Learning.
Slated to open in 2019, the Center for Innovation & Design will be a cutting edge academic environment designed to encourage and enable your child to expand their minds and break through traditional ways of thinking and understanding the world.
Innovation serves as the foundation of our efforts to cultivate modern day academic rigor.
The MBS journey is an opportunity to discover, explore, and grow as a thinker and learner.
We are invested in guiding students to reach their maximum potential within a life of balance and authentic learning.
$50 million over 15 years has transformed our campus to best deliver exemplary academics.
