Employer Description

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.

Religious Affiliation
Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

Student Body
715 students from Preschool to Grade 12, representing over 60 school districts within a 50-mile radius of Moorestown:
Upper School (9 - 12): 291
Middle School (5 - 8): 210
Lower School: (Preschool - 4): 214

The school is located on 48 acres in the heart of Moorestown, named in 2005 as the Best Place to Live in the U.S. by Money magazine. 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. Five buildings are located on the four-acre property: the Main Building which looks out on Main Street, the South Annex, a two-floor building that the school is hoping to quickly convert to classroom space, and three other houses.
