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.

A lot of students resent Millburn because of the intense competition to be the best student, to go to an ivy league college and sign up for the best AP classes. Others love it for all these reasons. Personally, I have made a conscious effort to block out the pressure of my school and work on my own strengths. I have never felt supported by school when it comes to the arts though. The theater department is dominated by favoritism, the music department has no funding, and my student run a cappella group was almost disbanded by the school because we are a club instead of being affiliated with the music department. It is disheartening to see the robotics club flowing with money and two classrooms given to this club or the sports teams getting all new uniforms and equipment every few years while my a cappella group fights to use a math classroom for rehearsal and we have to fight just to use our cafeteria for concerts.
Great academic reputation, that comes with a cost. Student anxiety levels are through the roof and depression plague half of the student body. We are known for our amazing faculty, but rarely do we have actually good teachers. It has been found that out of your core 5 classes one to two of your teachers actually understand how to teach and welcome you after school for more help if need be. Yes, we are “college ready,” but has anyone stopped to think that maybe we are to ready. When kids that go to uchicago come back and say “yeah college is super easy compared to Millburn,” perhaps that isn’t such a good thing.
