Our 22-Acre Campus
Nestled on twenty-two beautifully-landscaped acres in historic Morristown, NJ—the Crossroads of the American Revolution—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. Whether studying, playing sports or relaxing with friends, our students enjoy spending time in this wonderful setting.
Built in 1891, Beard Hall is the oldest building on campus and was once The Morristown School’s Old Main. The building was renovated in 2004 to include the new Anderson Library, modern classrooms, reception rooms, and meeting rooms. Today, the building houses the Admission Office, the Headmaster's office, the Dean of Faculty's office, the World Language Department, College Counseling, and the Business Office.
Named for former Headmaster Valleau Wilkie, Wilkie Hall opened in 1969 as a 340-seat auditorium with additional classroom space on the lower level. Wilkie Hall was recently renovated to house the School’s state-of-the-art technology center and computer labs.
In September of 2017, MBS unveiled Science On a Sphere®—the only one of it's kind in New Jersey. Designed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this extraordinary learning tool will help both science and history classes illustrate climate change, ocean temperatures, historical movement and other natural events by projecting planetary data on a 6-foot sphere.
Formerly known as Old North, Grant Hall was completely renovated in 2004 to provide spacious classrooms and office space. This building now houses the English Department, History Department and The Center for Academic Writing.
In 2007, South Wing was completely remodeled to become the new home of the MBS Center for Teaching and Learning. The renovated facility also houses visual arts classrooms and the School nurse.
Boasting an impressive 630-seat theater, Founders Hall serves as a hub for the arts at MBS and has also become the home of Morning Meeting, where the entire School Community gathers each week. The facility also includes rehearsal space, classrooms, and two levels of lobbies for exhibitions.
A completely renovated and redesigned Middle School opened in September 2008 with spacious classrooms, upgraded technology, science laboratories, and commons areas designed to foster all kinds of new interaction.
This Dutch Colonial Revival built in 1916 had for generations been the home of Morristown and MBS headmasters and their families. It is now home of the School’s Office of Institutional Advancement and offers comfortable gathering rooms for intimate receptions and events.View our Campus Map
