Currently in its tenth year of operation, Two Rivers serves over 500 students from grades preschool to eighth grade. Two Rivers is an exciting educational environment where students and staff are a community of learners on a journey of discovery. Founded by an energetic and committed group of DC parents, Two Rivers uses Expeditionary Learning, an educational model that emphasizes interactive, hands-on, project- based learning. The school focuses on the whole child, recognizing the importance of character education and the social- emotional needs of children while helping them achieve academic excellence.
The Two Rivers staff share a strong belief that all children can learn and be high achievers. The curriculum at Two Rivers is rigorous, standards-based, and provides opportunities for students to excel in all areas. An integrated arts program and a content-based Spanish program augment the school's demanding academic program. These elements come together through learning expeditions that allow students to incorporate and apply their classroom learning through real-world experiences.
The mission of Two Rivers is to nurture a diverse group of students to become lifelong, active participants in their own education, develop a sense of self and community, and become responsible and compassionate members of society.
