Newsweek just released it’s annual rankings for 2012 US public schools, and Millburn High School was named #83! Newsweek uses six criteria to create their list of rankings:
1. four-year gradation rate
2. college-acceptance rate
3. number of AP and other high-level exams given per student
4. average SAT/ACT scores
5. average AP/college-level test scores
6. the number of AP courses offered per student
At the top schools like Millburn, 91 percent were admitted to college and students had a higher average AP score — 3.4 out of 5, compared with the national 2.8.
We believe this fantastic ranking will drive buyers from the metropolitan area to Millburn, Short Hills in the near and long term future, as Millburn High School continues its legacy as one of the prominent public school systems not only in New Jersey but in the US. That is great news for sellers and for buyers, as homes will retain their resale value.
