Great River School Reviews

3 reviews
Great River is an amazing school with exceptional support from peers and advisers. You will always have someone to go to, if you feel that you are struggling academically or mentally. The environment is welcoming and you will definitely make life-long friends there. The only thing that lacks is diversity, however, Great River works actively to change that.

Ah, Great River. All hail Maria Montessori, our lord and savior. Child labor builds character. Service. Restitution. Tami. Nelson. Michael Flood. Going on walks in the middle of January to go to the woods and talk about plants. The metro transit bus system.
I would rate it 10/10, would never do again, an experience like no other and simultaneously the best place I have ever experienced. I'll remember you all in therapy.
It's open and loses structure lead to freedom to do work and to avoid work. The rigorous workload taught students to learn how to deal with progects.
