Admissions and Enrollment

Two Rivers will once again participate in My School DC - a common application for nearly all DC-based public schools for the 2021-2022 school year. Visit My School DC for more details about the application process.

Please note that Two Rivers waitlists cannot be carried over from year to year. Families must re-apply to Two Rivers via My School DC for a chance to be admitted through the lottery, or to be added to the waitlist, for the 2021-2022 school year.

Two Rivers Public Charter School serves a diverse group of learners across three locations in Wards 5 and 6. Staff at Two Rivers create an exciting educational environment in which students and staff become a community of learners on a journey of discovery. Two Rivers uses the EL Education model, which 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 shares 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.
