About Moorestown Friends School
Great kids Going places
At Moorestown Friends, we measure greatness by many metrics. MFS students build sound academic foundations, exceed traditional benchmarks, collectively earn the highest SAT scores in South Jersey, and go on to success at a diverse and impressive mix of colleges and universities.
Then, these graduates go places — in industry, entrepreneurship, academia, service, law, medicine, the arts, and far beyond — to build impressive resumes and careers of consequence.
Every step of the way, MFS graduates define greatness on their own terms.
At MFS, what we believe profoundly shapes how we teach and learn. Because we value the inherent dignity of every person, our students learn to see the Inner Light in people of all beliefs, backgrounds, talents, and personalities. And because we believe our classrooms should be both challenging and compassionate spaces, our students try more earnestly, persevere in the face of difficulty, go deeper, engage with others, and learn more.
Moorestown Friends School graduates leave here as truly great kids going places — not just distinguished by outstanding test scores or bound for colleges that impress, but defined by uncommon kindness, meaningful accomplishment, and generative, generous lives that speak.
Moorestown Friends School is a community rooted in Quaker values and dedicated to the pursuit of educational excellence for a diverse student body within an academically rigorous and balanced program emphasizing personal, ethical and spiritual growth.
