Two Rivers offers a personal, family-like learning environment where students and their teacher-colleagues work side-by-side to the single goal of empowering the individual student with a meaningful education. High school students are assigned to Personal Pathway classes where teachers work with them as a team. In the Personal Pathway class, faculty review individual student progress regularly.
Students work to gain mastery of learning at their own pace. Students graduate when they have completed their course work and can demonstrate mastery of important skills. Individual graduations occur throughout the school year, when each student has met their graduation requirements, a ceremony is held at the end of the school year for all graduates.
Two Rivers is a school of choice. Students give up the broad course offerings and extracurricular activities of a comprehensive school for this more personal, individualized approach. Each student formally "chooses" the school, agrees to work hard each day and support the principles of the school; each parent agrees to actively support the student's serious efforts; and the school pledges an education which will allow students to thrive in a changing world.Entry Requirements: Students wanting to enroll at Two Rivers must complete an application.
