Headmaster Caldwell has made MBS a top premier independent private day schools in NJ. MBS has made big improvements: 2007-new athletic center, 2008-new middle school,2009-new auditorium,2011-new tech center, 2013-new turf field and 2017-new 25,000 sq. ft math/science building. 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.

MBS is one of the most beautiful, academically rigorous and technologically advanced private day schools in the northeast, if not the U.S. It is rich in tradition and history. The majority of teachers maintain advanced degrees. The teachers are wonderful and supportive. The sports program and athletes are nationally recognized. The arts program is outstanding. The students work in a very collaborative environment and there is a very high level of school spirit...CRIMSON PRIDE!! Wonderful school!
