Millburn Senior High School Reviews

The academic level is rigorous, oftentimes stressful, yet the education truly prepares students for college. There are some wonderful teachers in the faculty, too! The culture is a bit stifling, with grades often being the sole measure of a student's potential/competence. However, that is not the case across the board.

While there is a wide source of academic opportunities, from CPB classes, to CPA classes, to honors, to AP's, it is made difficult to climb up the latter of academics and the system undeniably favors the rich. For example, when we were in just 7th grade (at Millburn Middle School), we took a math test that determined if we were to be placed in pre-algebra or algebra for 8th grade. From there, students that had only gotten into pre-algebra had to take Algebra in 9th grade, and would eventually end highschool in pre-calc. If a student wanted to skip ahead in math (Like me, because I became exceptional at math after middle school ), then they were required to pay for a summer course around 200 or 300 dollars. In a public school?? Really? And, the school does not allow students to learn the course on their own, and take the test after, which makes no sense. So, student's 7th-grade math performance decides their fate, and poorer students are systematically deprived of opportunity.
Great school, solid academics, awesome classmates, prepares you very well for college, and for life. The Principal is a good and caring man. Teachers are excellent.

The problem, however, is with the Guidance Office. The Head Counselor (HC) runs the show like a monarchy. They systemically favor the richest families who donate to the school and the Ed Foundation. If you are from an influential Jewish family, MHS is the place to be. Meritocracy be damned. Legacy kids (siblings and kids of MHS alumni) are blatantly favored.

The HC is well connected with the top colleges in the country. Given the clout of the MHS brand, if the HC recommends a student, it is difficult for a college to say no. If someone does a study over the past 10 years of the racial/legacy profile of the kids that the HC counseled herself, and the success rate of those kids for getting into the top 10 colleges vs. rest of the school, the numbers will tell a painful story.

This is disguised racism and nepotism.
