About

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.

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.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

At MFS, we weave academic rigor with Quaker values to serve a dual purpose: offering uncommon intellectual challenges while also instilling vital emotional and ethical attributes that empower our students.

Our focus on relationships creates conditions for great intellectual daring, remarkably productive collaboration, and courageous perseverance. And our Quaker values impart universal principles of equality, compassion, reflection, and responsibility—which serve students from all backgrounds and belief systems and remain relevant in rapidly evolving times. Our graduates’ minds are primed to be successful by every traditional measure, while their hearts and souls are poised to define success on their own terms—in choices about college, career, and life itself.

What is your mission statement?

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.
