Contiguous classroom buildings house students from Prekindergarten to Grade 12, with two preschool classrooms right next to the Lower School Building. Athletic facilities include seven all-purpose playing fields, two baseball diamonds, five tennis courts, three gymnasiums and a Field House. In 2008, the school purchased the former Greenleaf Retirement facility on Main Street, a property contiguous to the current MFS campus near the Field House and Tennis Courts. In 2011-12, renovations took place on the Greenleaf South Annex to transform the former boarding facility into a new classroom building. In 2012, the building was officially opened and dedicated as Hartman Hall which contains eight math classrooms, a choral music suite and choral sectionals rehearsal room. McShap Path leads to Hartman Hall from the Mecray Courtyard, located outside the Field House.
An innovative Playscape, opened in 2021, is a product of a year-long design process that included students, teachers, and families. The goal was to create a natural play space with opportunities for open-ended play that grows with students as they age. Children wanted places to perch, hide, be upside down, climb, interact with nature, be alone, and together. The Playscape achieves all of these things into one, multi-age, immersive natural environment. The space highlights the instructional value of landscape architecture and the desire for children to engage with and learn from nature.

Diversity and Inclusion
Moorestown Friends School is committed to fostering an environment that is both diverse and inclusive. Different perspectives and diverse opinions are welcome, which enriches our students’ interpersonal relationships and also filters into their critical thinking practices—strengthening their capacities to weigh complex and contradictory information and construct nuanced arguments. 51% of the student body are students of color. A wide variety of religious faiths are represented as well. In keeping with the Quaker philosophy of honoring each individual, students representing different ethnic, cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds are challenged daily to respect and learn from one another.
