Black River Public School Reviews

3 reviews
For the majority of my time at Black River it has been positive, however the last two years of high school have begun to show less admirable signs. The lack of helpfulness in how to apply to colleges is very irritating and stressful, and the pressure of the senior project is definitely weighing as if you don't do well you will not graduate. The lack of communication on some of these critical components of this school is what has brought my perspective of attending here down. However, its not all bad most of the teachers are nice and good at interacting with students in their own ways and the education gained is far above the standard of most other schools in the area.

Black River has prepared me very well for college! If you want to play sports in college, don’t come to BR. It is also great on how politically active the school is!
I love Black River! The curriculum is engaging and the teachers always do their best to help you fully understand the material being taught.
