Very dedicated teachers and administrators who love teaching. Phenomenal well-rounded education that encourages students to try varied activities and find their passion. As a result, students thrive.

Excellent curriculum and small classes. Great sports choices and social clubs. Campus feel and interactive teachers make this school seem more like a college for the 11th and 12th graders and more like a day boarding school for underclassmen. A great prep shcool for ivory league acceptance. The individual attention provided to students can make all the difference to a child that struggles in a particular class.

My daughter is about to complete her first year at MBS. The class size is small, the academics are challenging, the faculty is caring and the sports are great! An exceptional school!

My oldest recently graduated from MB and I currently have an 8th grader. The faculty goes above and beyond. My son's friends who are currently in public schools all want to apply because they have heard and seen through my son, what a great experience he is having.

Mo-Beard is an awesome school and has moved from strength to strength over the last few years. Our oldest daughter graduated three years ago, our middle daughter will graduate in June and our youngest will start as a freshman in September. It is a terrific secondary school; the middle school is not as highly regarded.

What a great school! Mo Beard has found the right formula of academics, sports, the arts and personal responsibility. We are very happy with the way they have gone about molding not just a student, but a participant of society. My son has had nothing but great things to say about his experience and I couldn't be happier. With the new Middle School and Performing Arts Buiding going up in the near future, the school will be a wonderful place to be.

Having recently graduated from Morristown-Beard, I can strongly vouch for the positive experience I had there. The core values of the school are evident among the students, who respect and care for each other. Morristown-Beard is a caring and nuturing environment with top teachers--for example, you have a former NASA scientist teaching computer science;a former Peace Corp member who lived in Africa teaching history; a Spanish teacher who is also a budding musician; and a former physicist for Bell Labs teaching physics. This is just a smattering of the dedicated and worldly teachers instructing high school student--pretty rare. The newly re-designed campus features top facilties. From the street, Mo-Beard looks like a country club and is one of the nicest campuses around. With the new leadership of Headmaster Alex Curtis, Morristown-Beard is headed in the right direction. The extracurricuar activities are diverse with an excellent student publications.

This is the best school that I have ever enrolled my child in. I believe that my child is getting a good education. I hope this school could help he to fullfill her dreams of becoming a chemist.

One of the best, smaller private schools in the Northeast in every aspect.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.


Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
