The Impact of An MBS Education
Powerfully Preparing Our Students for Learning and for Life
At Morristown Beard School, we’re proud to provide a journey unlike any other during the important school years of grades 6 through 12.
These Middle School and Upper School years are marked by great opportunity for intellectual, social, and emotional growth, and accordingly, we create a learning environment that will challenge your child in meaningful ways.
We focus on process over result. We encourage risk-taking and courage in decision-making in place of playing it safe and accepting the status quo. We teach our students to empower themselves in order to serve as their own best advocate. We ask them to pursue their passions while striving to positively impact the lives of others.
The impact of these experiences—of an MBS education fully explored—can best be seen in the remarkably accomplished alumni who achieve great things throughout the world. These women and men are well rounded, socially conscious global citizens of the world who use the foundational skills acquired in their time at Morristown Beard to change the world for the better.

Recent Graduates Reflect on the MBS Journey
It is incredible how many similarities I have found between MBS and Villanova. They are two wonderful schools with a strong sense of community. I wanted to let you know how much MBS overall, and your class in particular, have prepared me for college and for leadership roles. I sincerely attribute my growth as a leader to you and the skills you taught me last fall. I hope to be able to see you in person again soon and look forward to continuing to share how well MBS has prepared me for these next four years.

Although I never experienced MBS while spaced six feet away from my classmates, I hope you know that the spaces, both tangible, and intangible, that you've promoted have allowed for so many students to find their place in a community. I've realized their worth in a very big way as I've navigated new spaces here at Elon. I know this was a random, one-off thought, and I'm sure you're mired in tons of extra responsibilities, but I wanted you to know how truly wonderful the school you've led is.

Reflecting on my accomplishments in the midst of all that is going on, I am beyond grateful for all of the opportunities and support my family and communities have provided me, specifically Morristown Beard. I truly attribute who I am today to MBS. The education, community, and friends pushed me to be the best version of myself and gave me the foundation for success at [Boston College], and now out in the real world.
