About Black River High School

Black River High School is a high school located in Black River, St. Elizabeth.

The Black River High School is situated about half a mile from the town. The Anglican Church in Black River acquired 12 acres of land through loans and grants, also the Francis’ family gave 4 acres as a gift making a total of 16 acres on which the Government built the Black River High School.

The Junior Secondary school was opened in September 1970 to house 655 students on a straight shift from grades 7-9; Mr. E A Harris was appointed as Principal and his wife Mrs. B. J Harris as Vice-Principal. In 1974 the school was put on a two shift system since grades 10 and 11 were added. The word “Junior” was dropped from the title.
