Strategic Plan

Moorestown Friends School is currently in the midst of a strategic planning process which was temporarily placed on hold as a result of the pandemic.

The world is rapidly changing, and the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that our children will need to succeed are evolving with it. Through our strategic planning process, the school aims to better understand the societal forces that are impacting our present and future while considering how best to educate MFS students to live lives of courage and consequence in college, career, and beyond.

MFS has partnered with Leadership + Design, a firm that uses human-centered design to help schools and communities think creatively about future opportunities and challenges. The Strategic Planning Committee — comprised of board members, faculty, staff, alumni, administration, and parents — will meet several times throughout the year to explore questions and surface priority areas.

Below are updates and thought leadership pieces:
