A Coding program was unveiled in the Lower School (Preschool - Grade 4) for the 2015-16 school year. MFS is one of the few schools in the U.S. to provide Coding classes to all Lower School students, including 3-year-old preschoolers. The goal of the program is to prepare students for a world that is heavily reliant on technology.
MFS sports history was made in November 2015 as the Girls' and Boys' Soccer teams captured NJSIAA South Jersey sectional championships on the same night, on the same field.
The Moorestown Friends School Commencement ceremony includes a number of significant traditions each year. Graduates have worn white dresses and formal men's attire in lieu of caps and gowns since at least the early 1900s. Quaker secondary schools traditionally do not use robes, which are an outgrowth of clerical garb.
The Theater and Drama program offers classes and numerous performance opportunities for all students. Grade-level performances begin in Lower School, and the Middle School presents a spring musical. The Upper School produces a fall musical, a spring drama, and the student-directed Drama Club play. Upper School electives in drama include Introduction to Acting and Directing, as well as Technical Theater.
For one week, regular classes are suspended for 'Intensive Learning,' when Middle and Upper School students and teachers engage in an in-depth study of a specific subject. MFS journeyed to China to experience local culture and engage in service. A special highlight was the group's cultural exchange visit to a Xi'an school, which was featured on the Xi'an television news.
Since children learn best by doing, Middle School science is inquiry-based. The curriculum used in the Lower School, Science and Technology Concepts, is continued in Grades 5 through 7. This inquiry-based curriculum develops scientific and engineering practices in line with the national STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) initiative.
The Preschool - Grade 5 classes participate in one collective community art piece annually. The 2015- 16 piece is a study on color, light, radial patterning, and mediation. Each grade level helped create the radial patterns and place the individual pieces in their design. The piece will be displayed at the Lower School art installation.
Each year, on the day before Thanksgiving, mixed-age groups of Prekindergarten - Grade 12 students, faculty, and staff come together to make festive crafts to decorate local nursing homes and continuing care facilities. The school also comes together for a song led by the music teachers, an interfaith prayer, and a Thanksgiving story.
