Millburn Senior High School Reviews
Overall, Millburn High School is really a terrific school. It does, in fact, have a strong reputation, and that certainly helps when it comes to college applications. I have been told by several counselors that college admissions boards know that Millburn's class levels ("College Prep A", "Accelerated", etc.) rank very differently in other schools (for instance, our "College Prep A" could be a different school's "Honors"). While I am not in the top percentile of my class, I still find every single person who works here to be a big help. From the administration all the way to the custodians, everyone is there for you. In addition, there is a club for everyone, and from the academic viewpoint, there are plenty of electives that will interest everyone.
I attended the Millburn public school system from Kindergarten until 12th grade, and while prepared me well for college, it created long term problems in my academic confidence and formed my competitive nature. From the beginning, learning was seen as a cutthroat competition between students, and we were told that is what it would be like in the real world. While I managed to stay on the upper end of the curve and made it to an ivy league institution, my siblings are currently struggling to maintain confidence in themselves with teachers and an administration who does not value them as much as the more highly achieving students. That being said, because I got to take AP classes and had amazing teachers, my skills (particularly in the humanities) made it easy to adjust to Brown University. However, because I did not place into AP science classes, taking premed classes has been very difficult for me.
Millburn is a great school for any motivated student who wants to balance sports, extracurricular activities, and a social life with their academics. One downside to this school is that it often helps the top students more than it does those who are struggling in class. However, I think if a student takes advantage of the opportunities offered at MHS, they will have a positive high school experience, be happy with their college decisions, and be prepared for their future academic careers. The stress levels can be high, but anyone who manages their time well is normally free from extreme despair.
