Millville has made a great investment in technology and community outreach in resent years as well as free early childhood education. The high school may have shortfalls in test scores but has not been labeled a failing school. The staff seems friendly and offer lots of extra curricular actives and clubs. Millville has received awards for its music program in recent years and still offers classes like auto shop and culinary arts in house. Overall Millville offers a decent education.

Having nice teachers and offering extra curricular activities does not matter when up against POOR education. The bottom line is the entire school system suffers and it is in black and white with well below acceptable test scores. It is all in who you know and who your parents are at this school with very little focus on being all you can. Go private before going to MHS.

Overall good teachers and good administration. The staff is very serious about who takes advanced classes. Students must sign a contract and do a lot of work over the summer. If it's not done out they go. Millville is offering college credits for senior high classes to give the students a head start after they graduate. Great extra curricular programs also. Great school system. Go Millville!!

I really liked going to Millville High. There were a lot of class choices and extra curricular activities available. The teachers are very helpful there and take the time to help you if needed.

This school is 'okay', but it needs work. The halls are really too crowded, the lunches are too short a period, and the halls are really too crowded! The education here is great but it would be better if there was a better atmosphere.

This school offers a wide range of possibilities for students. The classes are not too big and the teachers my daughter has had make her laugh which allows her to enjoy class and learn by the dedication of the teachers. There is an amazing selection of languages to chose from and yes sports are a factor in this school. Children should be involved in every aspect of what this school can offer, b/c the prospects are endless with this school, on top of all the new buildings and work being done this year to Millville HS. This school has a lot to offer, the guidance counsels make sure your child can handle the classes they chose and it not help them make the right choices.

this school cares only about those students who are involved with the sports programs. they do not see harrassment and/or discrimination so long as the individual recieving this negative treatment isn't one of the precious athletes, everyone else is fair game. that negative behavior comes not only from the 'star pupils' but also directly from the staff.
—Submitted by a former student

This school has some amazingly dedicated teachers and staff, but extracurricular actvities seem to be more important than newer books, or supplies. The guidance councellors don't really take the time to get to know their students, unless they are involved in a lot of activities. Jean Curnow saved me many times, when my guidance councellor should have.

This school is extremely under budget and can't afford the basic supplies to get through the year. They had to let go about 50 young teachers last year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
