Millburn Township School District Reviews
Millburn schools not only prepare its students to excel in future educational endeavors, but they also teach students about hard work and ingenuity. Teachers are always there to help, which is fantastic! The students are highly competitive, which pushes each student to do his or her best, however, this competition also causes certain students to bring others down for their own personal gain. Ultimately, the resources and activities at MHS are amazing for its students and each person takes advantage of these opportunties to its fullest.
The Millburn Township is an excellent place to grow up. With it's warm community, and great schools, Millburn is welcoming and kind. However, the school district is an entirely different story. The entire school system starting in sixth grade, is centered around the concept of college. Students at Millburn Middle School and Millburn High School are so anxious that the school has to bring in therapy dogs once a month to comfort the anxiety ridden students. From the age of 12 you know if you are "intelligent" based on whether you were accepted into accelerated classes. Then in ninth grade the school is divided into two groups, College Prep A and College Prep B. The students in College Prep B (CPB) are viewed as inferior and seen as the laughing stock of the school. Your sixth grade math grade determines if you get into calculus in high school. Although Millburn has "good schools" they are terrible for the mental health of its students.
The school prides itself on preparing students for college and being rated highly compared to other high schools. However, in doing so, the culture has become overly competitive and toxic. The majority of students are “very stressed” and base their self worth on their college acceptances. The majority of teachers are super engaged and supportive, and the majority of the students are very nice. Popularity and bullying aren’t very apparent; people are usually too busy studying to care.
