At Millburn Middle School, I feel like the teachers push certain characteristics like respect and integrity too much and also focuses on anti-bullying too much. It gets annoying when the school is trying to push these characteristics onto us for the past five or so years. Millburn should also try and focus more on the extracurricular activities that aren't sports, like the theatre program and band. When I was in theatre, our production was poorly done. I know theatre is getting more recognition, we had a better production this year (2019), but I still feel like other extracurricular activities, especially those set up by students, should be recognized more by the administration.
Nothing would make me happier than loving our school. Like most people, we bought our house here because of the stellar school district reputation. I volunteer at the school and try to be a contributing member of the school community. But, they make it so hard to want to be there. At this point, I just donate money when it's needed and avoid showing up there.
The place isn't terrible, most of the teachers are good at what the teach and add something to the experience. A lot of the teachers are good with students and are able to handle most scenarios, while making the class fun and engaging. I've found that some teachers, as well as a large portion of the administration at the district, are seemingly not capable of performing their job to a level on-par with the rest of the teachers in the district. The principal at Millburn Elementary is almost always ready to do something and help students, the Vice Principal is in a similar scenario. The Principal here (as of 2018) has not done enough to help with students, and after talks with friends and family, has not helped them either when they had requests. I've found that extracurriculars that are outside Sports don't seem to get much attention from administration either. Band is neglected greatly and one to three parents are advocating for the firing of the schools 16 year band director, the district is only following along with the loudest minority and the superintendent says he has to, "please everybody". Any person would know is impossible, especially when your job is public relations with a school district, even one that's as small as this one. Extracurriculars started by the students are even worse. Even if the teacher that decides to work with your group is there for more than the 50 dollars per student, the school, and OTHER TEACHERS will try their hardest to kneecap your program just because they can, or because they feel jealous that a student is trying to do something interesting other than strictly learning inside the school walls.Overall, a lot of the teachers are really well, but the administration and a few distinct students in the school need some level of formal reeducation.
All the teachers are very supportive. They recognized my children's higher abilities and moved them to the AIM program. Everyone at the school couldn't be nicer.
