Millville Public Schools is a school district that serves the city of Millville, in Cumberland County, New Jersey, United States. The district is one of 31 former Abbott districts statewide,[3] which are now referred to as "SDA Districts" based on the requirement for the state to cover all costs for school building and renovation projects in these districts under the supervision of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority.[4][5]

As of the 2011-12 school year, the district's 10 schools had an enrollment of 6,023 students and 499.1 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.07:1.[1]

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "A", the lowest of eight groupings. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.[6]

The district has high school sending/receiving relationships with Commercial Township, Lawrence Township and Maurice River Township.[7][8] Students from Woodbine had attended the district's high school programs until a July 2013 ruling by the New Jersey Department of Transportation under which Woodbine students would start attending Middle Township High School as of September 2014, while Woodbine students who had already started attendance in Millville would be allowed to graduate.[9]

In 2003, Lakeside Middle School was identified as one of seven "persistently dangerous" high schools in New Jersey.[10]
