Principal's Message

John Connolly

Dear Parents and Guardians,

With great enthusiasm, I welcome everyone back to school for the 2023-2024 school year!  Millburn Middle School has a long-standing history of academic excellence, driven by strong curricula, outstanding teachers and support staff, and extra-curricular programs that provide students enrichment opportunities.

As a graduate of the Millburn Township Public Schools, I am excited to have the opportunity to give back to this amazing community and prestigious school district that has provided me the foundation for my personal and professional successes and accomplishments.

I'm entering my 29th year in public education. My experience ranges from elementary to high school as a successful teacher, supervisor, and administrator. I look forward to engaging students, parents, and teachers in conversations about how we can build on the great successes of Millburn Middle School. Our ultimate goal is to provide a top-tier education that will prepare our students for success.

My experiences have fostered in me a passion for helping students reach their potential academically while also developing strong character and emphasizing the value of citizenship. Therefore, I subscribe to a philosophy that embraces a balanced approach to education that allows students to mature academically, socially, emotionally, and physically with the necessary level of independence, guidance, and support.

I look forward to meeting every one of you as we forge a collaborative working relationship on behalf of our students.
