All Roads Lead to MFS!
Moorestown Friends School is proud to serve students from over 60 towns in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The Admissions Office is eager to discuss a transportation plan for your family as you consider Moorestown Friends School.
In New Jersey, transportation varies by school district. Some school districts provide bus service while others provide reimbursement in lieu of transportation (currently $884 per student).
Moorestown Friends encourages families to register your child with your public school district for busing through the Application for Private School Transportation Form (B6T). The information you provide will enable your school district to arrange transportation or payment.
