Moorestown Friends School is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
Fulfilling. Enriching. Life-changing. Supportive. Fun.
Those are just a few of the words used by faculty and staff to describe working at Moorestown Friends School (MFS). When alumni return to visit, the recurring theme of conversations is a deep appreciation for the dedication of faculty and staff who go the extra mile to help students achieve their goals and forge their identities. MFS teachers and support staff have been working hard to develop great human beings since 1785.
At MFS, there is space for curricular freedom, as well as the opportunity to interact with peers teaching at grade levels that range from Preschool through Grade 12. Faculty and staff are welcoming, collaborative, diverse, creative, thoughtful, and dedicated. You’ll enjoy an extremely tight-knit community with numerous alumni faculty and staff, as well as many faculty/staff parents and guardians of current students and alumni.
We are committed to fostering a community that is both equitable and inclusive. As a multi-divisional institution, we strive to shape, incorporate and refine our curriculum to support different learning styles and in addition, to be culturally competent and relevant for students to actively engage and learn from multiple perspectives to prepare them to be productive citizens in a global society.

Diversity and Inclusion
We believe that every person plays a role in making MFS a diverse, equitable, and inclusive place to learn, teach, and work. We practice inclusive hiring processes to attract a wide range of highly-qualified candidates from a variety of cultural, racial, and economic backgrounds, with a goal of having a faculty that represents the diversity of our student population. Learn more about our work in this area.
Our goal is to create a faculty/staff culture where all employees can bring their full selves to work. In addition to ample cultural competency professional development, we recently began affinity groups for faculty/staff to create an environment where identity can be affirmed and explored. We recognize that everyone’s experience in independent schools is different, and we want to be sure that all employees feel cared for and seen. The entire community benefits when all of our identities are nurtured.
MFS is committed to all employees’ professional development and provides resources for faculty and staff to develop skills and gain experience to achieve professional excellence. Faculty and staff participate in programs, seminars, courses, and conferences to enrich themselves as professionals and as people. Here are just a few examples:
New Faculty Program
New faculty and staff participate in an extensive three-day interactive orientation to help new employees acclimate to the school. Following the orientation, new faculty engage in an ongoing experience throughout their first year. Through the experience of learning about school culture (e.g., cultural competency, Quakerism, class observations, etc.) and working together to address unique questions and dilemmas that arise in their first year, the new faculty cohort develops a strong sense of identity and belonging within the larger community.
Peer School Visit Program
Each year, several faculty members are granted leave to participate in a unique Peer School Visit Program. Through observation, interaction, and discussion with peer educators, the program helps to keep the MFS community and culture fresh with new ideas, best practices, and various perspectives on how to best educate our students. Recent school visits have included: The MacLean School (MD), Denver Waldorf School (CO), Brightwork School (CA), Phillips Exeter (NH), Germantown Friends School (PA), The Miquon School (PA), Wildhaven Forest Preschool (MD), and Carolina Friends School (NC)
Zekavat Family Summer Sabbatical
The Zekavat Family Summer Sabbatical was established in 1996 to encourage MFS faculty to engage in creative and challenging summer travel and study for four to six weeks or more. The sabbatical is meant to contribute to the rejuvenation and education of the teachers at MFS and to permit them to pursue opportunities for personal growth and learning. Travel often occurs over a three-to-four week period, and participants pursue a self-made itinerary informed by their prior research, reading, and planning.
Some recent sabbaticals:
- French Teacher Jen Murphy Explores India Through Zekavat Summer Sabbatical
- Upper School History Teacher Eliza McFeely Explores WWII-Era Italy through Zekavat Summer Sabbatical
- Second Grade Teacher Paige Bloom Deepens Yoga Practice and Mindfulness in Bali through Zekavat Summer Sabbatical
- Kindergarten Teacher Kenya Barber Studies Education and Gender Inequality in Morocco through 2017 Zekavat Summer Sabbatical

- Coaching a sport
- Leading a Spring Intensive Learning course/trip
- Serving as a club advisor, after school programs teacher, MFS Summer Programs teacher, service coordinator, diversity coordinator, and more.
