Serving students in sixth through twelfth grades, the school has two academic units: an Upper School and a Middle School; the present-day Morristown–Beard School was formed from the 1971 merger of two single-sex schools: the Beard School for Girls and the Morristown School for Boys.

Edwards, a graduate of Harvard University, served as the school's first headmaster, classes took place in Morristown's Normandy Park area. St. Bartholomew's school was noted for hosting a speech by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes novels, in 1894. Three years St. Bartholomew's School moved its classes to Whippany Road after building a new campus near the Morristown railroad station. Designed by architects Edward Lippincott Tilton and William A. Boring, the buildings for this campus required only 90 days to construct; the blended Colonial Revival and Classical Revival architecture styles reflect the colonial history of the Morristown area. Ford Mansion in Morristown served as one of George Washington's headquarters during the American Revolutionary War; when St. Bartholomew's School faced financial challenges in late 1897, three of its teachers from Harvard University Class of 1888 reorganized St. Bartholomew's School as the Morristown School.

These three co-founders of Morristown School were Francis Call Woodman, Arthur Pierce Butler, Thomas Quincy Browne. Aiding their work to start the new school, a large donation from wealthy businessman Henry Lee Higginson provided critical seed funding; the school benefited from large financial gifts of three other notable philanthropists: businessmen Charles Francis Adams III, Larz Anderson III, Joseph Lee. Adams and Anderson graduated from Harvard in the same class year as Morristown School's co-founders. Morristown School prepared its students for Harvard University, other Ivy League schools, engineering schools; the school opened in September 1898 with eight staff members. Just two years enrollment more than tripled to educate 75 students. In 1908, Morristown School achieved recognition as one of only two schools outside New England to send students to Harvard for ten consecutive years. Strengthening the connection with Harvard, Morristown School leaders hosted the Harvard Club of New Jersey.

The club's April 1909 meeting brought visits from Harvard President Charles Eliot, New Jersey Governor John Fort, New Jersey Chancellor Mahlon Pitney. Eleven years the Morristown School ran a $500,000 fundraising campaign to establish an endowment. Several Harvard graduates served on the campaign's executive committee, including graduates of Harvard and the Morristown School. During World War I, 65 of Morristown School's first 103 graduates served in the U. S. military. Their service reflected the value of community service emphasized by Morristown School to its student body. During the war, students at the school raised funds to purchase and equip the Morristown School Ambulance, they presented this ambulance to the American Field Service for use in France. The American Field Service awarded Morristown School a certificate and a brass plaque to show its appreciation for the ambulance. In 1913, 40 of Morristown School's students helped the Morristown Fire Department extinguish a forest fire that had spread over three miles on Horse Hill.

Nine years the full student body helped fight a large fire that had destroyed two nearby houses. In 1957, the basketball team donated a trophy to Delbarton School to honor Paul Kreutz, a Delbarton player who drowned in 1956. In 1891, sisters Lucie Beard, Eliza Mills Beard, Ettie Beard Foster started a school for kindergarten students on Claredon Place in Orange, New Jersey; the three sisters were cousins of a Pulitzer Prize winning writer. Eliza Beard oversaw the school's financial management, Lucie Beard ran the educational activities, their mother, Hester Truslow Beard assisted with the establishment of the school. The Beard school had an initial enrollment of 13 students; the all-girls school moved to Berkley Avenue in 1900 and continued adding grades until it graduated its first class in 1903.
