Millburn Senior High School Reviews
Millburn is one of the most academically challenging public high schools in the United States. A lot of people see the students as rich, entitled, brats, but the large majority of us are unbelievably hardworking and diligent. I would say that we suffer from overwhelmingly high levels of stress and anxiety from our community and peers. Our academic environment is very competitive, but tends to prepare us for the best colleges. I have even heard stories about alumni who say that college was easier than some aspects of Millburn. As for diversity, most of the students are white, Chinese, or Indian. There are, however, less than twenty African American students in each grade. As one of the only transgender students in the school, I can say pretty confidently that there are not real problems with bullying.I don’t know much about drug usage( I’d never do that) but I think people vape.
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.
