Superintendent's Corner

Welcome to the Millburn Township Public Schools

 

As the Superintendent of this outstanding school district, I take pride in the dedication and support of our students, staff, and community that sustain the continuing excellence of our exceptional schools.

 

Thanks to community support of a bond referendum in 2016 we have opened the new 5th Grade Washington School, a center for traditional teaching and learning in innovative ways. Our district is making strides in being future-ready at all levels. Millburn High School has been certified as Future Ready by the Future Ready Schools New Jersey Committee, one of only 65 schools in the state to earn the award for supporting school and district efforts to best prepare students for success in college, career, and citizenship in the digital age. We are in the process of getting all of our schools certified as Future Ready.

 

Construction will begin next spring at the high school and middle school on new innovative spaces that will provide flexible class areas to allow student collaboration on design challenges, research and creation necessary for the 21st learner.

 

While our emphasis is always on teaching and learning, we are also mindful of the need to focus on the health and wellness of our community. We have established Health & Wellness committees at each school, and are focusing on educating students, and parents, about resilience and learning how to reduce stress.

 

Our Health & Wellness website has links to community resources and hotlines that are available 24 hours a day. The Millburn High School Student Center also provides support for students and families who may be struggling with depression, anxiety and stress.

 

This website is designed to provide information to our community, as well as current and future school families. If you have questions or need information please click Contact Us and send us a message.
