Welcome to Black River Middle School
We’re proud of our redesignation as a School to Watch from the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform (www.middlegradesforum.org), one of five such schools in the state. In addition, we were recently named a Reward School by the New Jersey Department of Education and certified as a Future Ready School.
Thanks to the support of the PTO, the Educational Foundation, and the entire community, we have an exceptional school. Our students are fortunate to partner with a strong faculty that challenges and nurtures them to develop as life-long learners and as responsible citizens. In addition, we're privileged to have Dr. VanWoert and a committed school board to guide us.
As always, I encourage open communication among our constituency. Please feel free to contact me as well as the vice principal Rebecca Tsihlas, individual teachers or guidance counselors Amal Azzara or Jenna Spence whenever you have questions or concerns. We strive to make your child’s experience be a positive and memorable one.
