Millburn Senior High School Reviews

At Millburn High School, the classwork is very rigorous and the teachers have high expectations for the students. Although it is very challenging in high school, as a college student I believe that Millburn High School has sufficiently prepared me for the coursework in college. The majority of students are extremely competitive, and students must test into AP courses due to the high demand. Class sizes are small and teachers are usually happy to meet with students. The guidance department is very helpful and is always accessible to students. It is the student's responsibility to be proactive and make appointments. Lastly, I believe that Millburn High School offers a wide variety of different courses that students can take. For example, besides the basic sciences (physics, chemistry, biology), MHS offers forensic science, meteorology, genetics, astronomy, etc.

Millburn High School is a school where competitive people thrive. There is certainly a very intense academic pressure, lots of grade and club competition, especially in regard to college. Some teachers aren't great, and some are amazing, but it really is a school where attitude changes everything. If you can balance school, social life, and sleep, more power to you because this school definitely requires you to. Despite all this, I have met some of the most amazing people I know here and I know that not only have I come out of Millburn a better student, but I am more prepared for the college experience specifically because of how hard this school pushes you.
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.
