The Middle School House System dates back to the Miss Beard School for Girls and the Morristown School for Boys. The Athenians and the Spartans were Houses from Miss Beard School and the Whippanies and Shogums were from the Morristown School for Boys. Under the direction of former Headmaster Dr. Curtis, the four houses were reestablished in the eighth grade. Since then, the eighth grade class participates in a series of team building competitions that promote school spirit. The sixth and seventh grades join the eighth grade twice a year between sports seasons to participate in a series of fun competitions.
In the spring members of the twelfth grade who were in the Middle School join the eighth grade houses to which they were members and compete against one another for the Legacy Cup.
The culmination of the competitions is the awarding of the House Cup during the Moving Up Breakfast.
Faculty Advisor: Sam Tuttle, Sara Alders, and Suzanne Sweeney
The Boys and Girls Workshops are organized twice per year by the school counselor and the Girls Leadership Coordinators. The aim of the program is to dedicate time during the school year to have in-depth conversations on relevant topics such as girl’s body image, portrayals in the media of manhood, the concept of gratitude, and self-image. All students and teachers participate in the workshops.
