Headmaster Caldwell has made MBS a top premier independent private day schools in NJ.

MBS has become one of the most beautiful, updated and technologically advanced private day schools in NJ. MBS has a strong academic curriculum. Great sports. The majority of teachers maintain advanced degrees and are very supportive of the students. MBS has a very collaborative environment. The students are happy and the school always maintain a very positive vibe! School spirit is incredibly strong with CRIMSON Pride! Matriculation continues to expand and MBS students attend some of the most prestigious universities in the nation. It has been a wonderful experience for my children. Best choice we made as parents in providing our children with a solid base for a strong and successful future

The investment and opening of the new state of the art 25,000 square foot Math/Science building is just one (albeit significant) example of how MBS is focusing on core academics and bringing the school and the academic program to a new and more intensified level for all students in preparing them for the rigors of college and for life.
