Has a huge Jewish population, as well as a sizeable Asian one. There's maybe one black kid in the public school.
The guy who invented Arizona Iced Tea lives here, as well as (supposedly) the guy who founded Dole Fruit. Ashlee Simpson and Lil Kim have both been spotted in our mall.
The kids are mostly wannabe punks, and emo kids. The parties suck. Millburn is considered the "ghetto" of the town, but it too is actually one of the top 100 wealthiest towns in the country.
The public school's sports teams are admittedly awful. Our football team is a joke. The only team worth mentioning is fencing, as the mens team is something like 2nd best in the state.
Despite all this, Short Hills kids are extremely smart, always scoring above average on the SATs and standerdized tests. The public school system is notoriously good.
YOUR JUST JEALOUS YOU DONT LIVE HERE!!!
As for the schools being so great..i'm not so sure. i went to millburn high and grew up in SH. the principal of millburn high got in trouble for having sex with a student, gym teacher arrested for getting head from a young boy, psych teacher arrested for dealing coke to students. it's the parents to whom education is important that give millburn high it's success rate..not the school. the same parents, kids and famlies that many of you have bashed on these pages. give credit where credit is due.
bust your ass to be successful and someday you too may be able to trade in your blue collar problems for the equal but different problems enjoyed by the residents of Short Hills.
viva Short Hills!
person1: wanna do soething this weeekend?
person2: cant ..bat mitzvah
Not everything is handed to people here on a silver platter, they actually do th e work in med, law, and business schools to get the jobs that make them so affluent. It's not an accident that people there have high-paying jobs. There are people of other races/religions. NOT EVERYONE IS A JEW. Anyway, why do you feel the need to judge people on their religion? Sure, there are snobs but it's not because they're Jewish.
Please don't judge this town because it has a nice mall and a state championship-winning soccer team as well as other successful athletes. It reflects poorly on you.
Person 2: Oh, she must be a JAP, right?
Person 1: Actually, she's Hindu.
