MHS Class of 2014 Leaves Impressive Mark

July 7, 2014 at 6:12 AM

MILLBURN, NJ - The Millburn High School graduating class of 2014 has certainly left their mark this year, as students prepare to attend the nations' top universities next fall. Among the 409 students in this years' graduating class, 113 will be heading off to what TAP considers top 25 colleges and universities. In addition, 29 MHS students will be attending Ivy League schools next fall. These numbers would be quite impressive from a high school twice the size of MHS.

Seven percent of the 2014 MHS graduating class will be going to Ivy League colleges next year, including this year's valedictorian, Josh Hochman, who will be attending Yale University next fall. Josh told TAP " "I was honored to be my class's valedictorian, but what I find more impressive about the Class of 2014 is just how bright our entire grade truly is. We've all dedicated ourselves to our pursuits - academic and extracurricular - and that commitment bodes so well for our futures." 

Among the most popular destinations for this year’s graduating students are Penn State University, the University of Michigan, and Tulane University. In addition, MHS students will arrive in packs at the nations' most elite schools next fall. Yale University will receive five of Millburn's brightest students, while Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania each receive four students. In addition, three Millburn High students will attend Princeton University next year.

One student who will be heading to South Jersey to attend Princeton University next fall is Robert Stone. “Getting into Princeton was a dream come true for me. I couldn't be happier with the end result of my four years of hard work at MHS," he said.

Two members of the MHS Class of 2014 will be attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, which has a 7% acceptance rate.  One of these students was also accepted at Princeton, and the other at Cooper Union, one of the country's most prestigious engineering schools.  We salute their decision to serve our country.

Millburn High is generally synonymous with academic success and this years' class truly embodies Millburn's level of high achievement. It is a unique school in that it consistently sends students off to the best colleges in the country. 

The class 2014 has set a high bar for next year's class to follow, as they begin the process of writing college essays, taking college entry exams, and asking teachers for college recommendations over the summer.
