Academic programs align very specifically with the CT standards. The Encore program is offered for elective selections and an enrichment program provides students opportunities to develop their math and science interests. The school recognizes academics, effort, and citizenship with awards and VIP (Very Invested People)privileges. A variety of after school activities are offered in the fall and spring. The school was recently selected as a NASA Explorer School. Two Rivers is a beautifully designed and technology enhanced building which focuses on environmental sciences. Laptop computers are provided to students to use both at school and home for their academic tasks. Parent involvement is welcomed,encouraged, and recognized throughout the year. Family centered activities and programs are offered by the faculty and PTA to bring the 5 communities together. As a parent of a 6th grader, I have been very impressed with the energy of the staff, and the caring environment that my son is a part of this year.
