About Us

Our School and Community

Morristown High School is a comprehensive four-year secondary school that serves a diverse population of over 1900 students, led by a staff of 167 educators (two-thirds of whom have advanced degrees).  We are located in Morristown, NJ, a vibrant, cosmopolitan suburb rich in history and culture. Our students avail themselves of the many opportunities provided by our local museums, historic sites, performing arts venues, colleges and universities, and civic institutions.

MHS provides a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, including 29 Advanced Placement and 38 Honors courses, complemented by a full range of co-curricular activities as well as 29 varsity athletic teams.  Accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and the NJ Department of Education, MHS stands out among peer high schools for its programs in STEM, film and broadcasting, music, and theatre.

As part of our commitment to graduating students with well-developed global competency, MHS participates in the NJ State Seal of Biliteracy Program, which grants certification of demonstrated linguistic proficiency in English as well as a second world language.  Our official partnership with CIEE offers students Global Navigator Scholarships for life-changing study abroad experiences, with an emphasis on intercultural awareness and communication skills.
We are proud to be part of a school district that was featured in the New York Times as a model of successful racial integration ("As Other Districts Grapple with Segregation, This One Makes Integration Work," 12/12/16).
