The elementary grades at Black River Public School follow the Montessori Method of instruction, with accommodation made for standardized testing requirements. This method differs from the style of instruction to which most parents and students are accustomed, and it forms a perfect foundation for Black River's educational mission and teaching philosophy.
In making a school choice for your child, parents are invited to carefully read our Montessori information, ask questions and visit our classrooms to inform yourselves fully about what you should expect from the Black River elementary program.
Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.
A great way to support your classroom teacher and our elementary program is through the purchase of additional materials for our classrooms. Check with your teacher for her "Wish List", then go to the sites below to find and order the materials:
