BMRSD History

The Blackstone-Millville Regional School District was established in 1967 to serve the needs of students from the towns of Blackstone and Millville. The District consists of one elementary school in Millville, two elementary schools in Blackstone, one Regional Middle School and one Regional High School. Blackstone-Millville Regional Junior-Senior High School opened its doors in September 1970 serving Grades 7 through 12. 

The District currently consists of five schools. In Millville, the Millville Elementary School was built in 1992 to replace the Longfellow Elementary School, and houses grades Pre-K to Grade 5. In Blackstone, the John F. Kennedy Elementary School, opened in 1965 and with a renovation/expansion in 1998, houses grades K to Grade 2. Also in Blackstone, the Augustine F. Maloney Elementary School, opened in 1988, serving Grades 3 through 5.

The Frederick W. Hartnett Middle School opened in 2003 for Grades 6 through 8 and the Regional High School houses Grades 9 through 12.

The District was fully regionalized in 1984, replacing separate School Committees for the Millville and Blackstone K-6 districts. Members of the Blackstone-Millville Regional District School Committee are elected at large from the two member communities.  Each of the eight members, four from each community, serves a four-year term. Two members stand for election each April.
