Nestled on twenty-two beautifully landscaped acres in historic Morristown, NJ, Morristown-Beard School combines the charm and character of a small college campus with the high-tech necessities of a modern education. Our campus includes new arts, academic, and athletic facilities and stately turn-of-the-century buildings in a quiet, park-like environment beside the picturesque Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
Math and Science Facility
In the fall of 2017, MBS opened a new 25,000 square foot math and science facility. In addition to the 8 math classrooms, DNA lab, chemistry lab, and art gallery, the new building houses an environmental science lab equipped with a stream table, aquarium and aquaponics system.
Housed in the Environmental Lab, the 10-foot stream table is used in the Environmental Science class to explain the process of erosion, deposition, and delta formation.
Located in the Environmental Lab, the 180-gallon saltwater reef aquarium is the new home for a variety of saltwater fish. As part of an independent study course, the student is required to maintain the aquarium.
Students observe plants in the "grow-bed" which is part of the Aquaponics system set up in the Environmental Lab. Underneath sits a 300-gallon water tank stocked with tilapia.

Morristown-Beard School has the only Science On a Sphere® in New Jersey, and one of two schools in the nation that has invested in this unique and exceptional educational tool.
