Two Rivers Public Charter School was honored as one of The Washington Post's Top Workplaces in 2015!

"It's an honor to be a student at an EL school. I feel so lucky to be here where I can learn from my failures and mistakes, and have a whole crew who supports me as I go through that. Being at TR has helped me reach for higher expectations. It has transformed me."
- Kevin, 7th grader (2014-15)

At Two Rivers, we always begin with our mission: 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.

The Two Rivers staff is a dedicated, thoughtful, passionate group of educators committed to create a vibrant learning community that begins and ends with that foundation.

By joining the Two Rivers team, professionals become members of a thriving intellectual community that challenges eager educators through robust, collaborative, and engaging professional development opportunities. (The staff's professional development work was featured in the book Data Wise in Action from Harvard University.) Our crew finds itself immersed in a rich, educational culture that values its members and a growth mindset.

Two Rivers has two campuses: 4th Street and Young. The 4th Street campus is housed in two buildings - a elementary school and a middle school. The Young campus opened in August 2015 with preschool through first grade!

"The staff culture here at Two Rivers is unlike any I have experienced before. I work with leaders in the field of education and some of the smartest (and most fun) people I know. I constantly feel inspired, pushed, and supported in my craft."

- Jessica Proffitt, Lead Teacher in the 4th/5th Grade Loop

"At TR, I have learned that having a growth mindset is the key to development for any individual. While we are shifting our students to becoming lifelong learners, the same is true for how we shift our thinking and learning as professionals."

- Nicole Wood, Middle School Math Inclusion Specialist

“I admire how serious and vigorous we are about the word 'all.' At Two Rivers all students and all staff members have access to learning and understanding. No exception!”
