History Edit

Moorestown Friends School was created in 1785 by members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). The original building stood in what is now Maple Shade Township, New Jersey. It was built before any public school was established in Moorestown. Soon after, another building was erected on the current site, next to the Moorestown Meetinghouse.


The girls tennis team won the 2005 South B state sectional championship with a 4-1 win over Sacred Heart High School.[4]
