MILLBURN, NJ - According to the most recent Niche.com school rankings, Millburn Middle School is named the best public middle school in the U.S. for 2016.  The final results were tallied from records and statistics comparing 15,656 schools nationwide.

The determining factors that make up the statistics are the strength of academic grades, overall quality of the school district, quality of teachers and student culture and diversity.  50% of the total calculation is weighted on academic grades.  Niche gave Millburn Middle School a grade of “A+” in every category except student culture and diversity.  For that, it received a “C+”.

“Our rankings are different, and for good reason. We believe that the quality of a school or district should be measured, at least in part, by the parents and students who actually go there,” the methodology states. “The most unique thing about our rankings is that they incorporate student outcomes. We go to great lengths to ensure that our rankings represent a comprehensive assessment of each school or district.”
