Our School

North River is a school with approximately 210 children in attendance. The classes range from grade pre-primary to grade 6. The children are taught in cooperative and child centered classrooms. For the 2022-23 school year, we have the following class configurations: Primary, Primary/One, One/Two, Two, Two/Three, Three/Four, Five and Six. We pride ourselves in providing a caring and high-quality learning environment in which the individual child's learning needs are recognized and nurtured. North River will have 9 classrooms, Resource Support & Learning Center. We also have a shared school psychologist, guidance counselor (Social and Emotional Learning) and speech pathologist, and offer Music, Physical Education programs and Core French for grade 4, 5 and 6.

The school was constructed in 1961 with additions in 1964 and 2007. Also, the school has a large playground and play field. Our school community draws from a largely rural area although many parents work in Truro and Bible Hill. Parents have a voice in our school through the School Advisory Council and the Home and School. We encourage a high level of positive community support.
