Two Rivers is a great school- many reasons include, the newest enrichment program. This is sponsored by our PTA- and includes classes from baseball to geo caching, to book clubs and spanish, music etc. All classes are held after school and are taught by parent volunteers. Our school also offers additional assistance for those in need, through the otter club. The teachers are great- the community is awesome & the PTA really supports the school. It is one of the best schools in the natomas area.

Two Rivers is ok as NUSD schools go. We moved my son over to NUSD from Twin Rivers USD when NUSD went to "fuill day" Kindergarten. We love his teacher, Ms Nickless. she really cares bout the kids and not in a mushy mushy way. She is loving yet firm. Like that. My son was sad to leave his friends and school at Twin Rivers USD but has grown in leaps and bounds through his KInder experiences. My complaint is directed not at the teachers or the curriculum but at the "management". Not happy with the new principal. Never see her interact with the kids, in the classroom or at after school events. She does not seem to have her HEART in it!? Why? MY son's former Principal, Micheal Reed, loved interacting with the students: jog-a-thon, Harvest festival etc. He was/is GREAT!

WE love this school! My son is the special education preschool, and it has been such a wonderful experience. He has grown socially and developmentally this year. The teacher and the aids are encouraging, professional, supportive, and dedicated.

Classes are relatively small and teachers are very involved and passionate about teaching. They have also started to bring more technology into the classrooms which I think makes Two Rivers more competitive with public and private schools.

I am so very disappointed in Two Rivers Elementary School. My child has been attending there since 2nd grade when I heard they had an amazing Learning Center. The LC is above and beyond. The problem is that there is nothing done about bullying and parents of the fearful child are asked to minimize their time on campus cause the child needs to learn these conflict skills for their future school years. The school district does not take action except phone calls to the school. I am removing my child from this school for her safety. I am sad to take her from the best special ed teachers we have ever met.

Two Rivers is the best elementary school in Natomas. It is a safe school, the Principal, Doctor Segovia -Hale always makes sure gates are closed & children are supervised. My children's teachers (Mrs. Nickless & Mrs.Irby) care about them and teach them what they need to learn to be successful. Two Rivers has high academic & behavior expectations. I highly recommend Two Rivers!

My children came to Two Rivers from Witter Ranch. What a difference a Principal makes! My kids have had Mrs. Nickless and Ms. O'Connor. I believe Tr. C has the most highly qualified and dedicated teachers. It is more than just a job, these teachers are called to teach our children. The Principal is young and LOVES the children. She always welcoming children with her big smile. She speaks Spanish, too. Two Rivers has been a positive place for my children. If you want your child to be in a school that believes in your child and has high expectations Two Rivers is the place to be.

I have 2 children at Two Rivers, one in Mrs. Irby's class and one in Ms. Baggett & Ms. Pagan's class. I believe these are the hardest working teachers at the school. They always go above & beyond their regular responsibilities. The new Principal Dr. Segovia-Hale is really great! She connects with the kids & genuinely listens. Two Rivers is the best school !!

Two Rivers is the best elementary school in Natomas USD. It is a year round school which promotes on-going learning opportunities. Most of the teachers really go above above and beyond to help kids succeed. The principal Amanda Segovia-Hale is awesome. She is in the classrooms, in the lunch room and her door is always open. Yhe kids love Otter Be Good lunch with the Principal.

We love Two Rivers! Our daughter has attended since Kindergarten. She is now in 3rd Grade and excelling in all topics. Her Star Testing scores were well above 400- I attribute my daughters success to the atmoshpere of the school- the teachers are like a big family-they really care about what is happening with each student. Computers are important along with real life applications like handeling money. The other reason I think my daughter is so secure at school is the fact that they keep the kids together through each grade. It is nice to be able to relate to her when she talks about her friends at school.

I am a single, working mother of two. I enrolled my 1st and 5th grade daughters in this school in the Fall of 2007 and received excellent teachers for both girls. My 5th grader was very weak in math and language arts going in and made Honor Roll going out. I give a lot of credit to the teacher, Jerry Lovejoy, for his dedication and 'work with' attitude. The Two Rivers discipline system is terrific and encourages responsibility and accountability. The homework tracking system in the school is excellent and helped me to keep on top of my girls' homework assignments (prior to Two Rivers, my 5th grader used to claim that she had no homework--yeah, right!). The principal is a good administrator and engenders school spirit while promoting strong values around citizenship, teamwork, and academic excellence. The school staff is very responsive. My experience with the school was outstanding.

My 3 children attended this school last year for 3 months. It was the best school they have been to. The teachers are GREAT Mr. Linkin,& Mrs. Tamar were wonderful. I couldn't believe that when I called the school the office (which the staff is also terrific) would put me right through to the class n I could speak to my children. The 3 of them grew so much and learned a lot there.

I have 3 children at two rivers right now. They are all doing really well and love to go to school. The principal is terrific, listens to complaints and finds a good solution to the problem every time. The discipline meted out fits the crime all the time. This is my children's second year here and every teacher has been awsome. Even if I don't agree with something I have been able to talk to the teacher and work it out. The teachers for the most part welcome parent participation in the class and I regularly see other parents participating when I do. I have experienced much support and encouragement as a parent at this school. Live is not always easy and I can count on two rivers being a place that my kids feel safe and welcomed at. I appreciate the hard work of the staff of two rivers elementary school, thank you!

Our daughter began pm kindergarten in track D this year and she/we love it! Her teacher does an excellent job making kindergarten a fun experience for a wide range of academic levels. She is not only learning, but making many friends and learning to love school. There are also many opportunities for parents and families to become involved with a wide range of activities. I would like to thank all the staff of Two Rivers for being dedicated and hard working professionals!

My son has been at this school for 5 years, since Kindergarten. All of the teachers have been very involved with each and every student. The yard duties are excellent and take good care of the kids during recess. They always have extracurricular activites like science camps, art, and sports. There is a high level of parent involvement at this school. You really get to know the teachers that your child has as long as you stay involved. The teachers feel appreciated and really enjoy parent participation in all grade levels.

This is a great school! The families are very supportive, there is great emphasis on academics & standards by the faculty and the class sizes are appropriate and comfortable for the teachers. We like this school so much that we opted to keep our child there even after the district opened another elementary school just down the street from our home.

Two Rivers Elementary has had many challenges this year. Thankfully the quality and seasoned Teachers and staff members at Two Rivers have truly held the school together. Fortunately, the parents are also supportive and involved at the school. Together we will support our children and help to keep the motivation going. It is truly a wonderful school. I would definitely recommend this school and the staff.

This is a great school with good parent involvement and participation. The principal works well with both staff and parents for a well rounded environment. Class sizes could be a bit smaller district wide- other than that, this is a well kept and run elementary.

Our experience with Two Rivers, has been very poor. Our child attends there, and has always been a good student, and is a very outgoing, socialable child. She has had problems with other kids in her class, teasing, and harrassing her for various reasons. When she resists their teasing, and harrasment, and reports it, she is the one who always ends up getting punished! We have talked to her teacher many times about this, but he always walks away, or changes the subject, just like he does with other children in his class. Our daughter is not the only one who has experienced this problem.

I have been very impressed with this school. My daughter has just completed kindergarten here, and her teacher was excellent. Also, the principal is very involved, getting to know many of the children personally. The school's weekly assemblies are very effective in giving the children a larger perspective, understanding that their world extends beyond their immediate environments (classrooms) and to their entire school and even the community in which we live.

My daughter is in her first year at Two Rivers and so far, I think it's great! She really likes her Kindergarten teacher and I have noticed how involved and friendly the principal is. In fact, my daughter had to be picked up from his office one afternoon and he was wonderful to her. As for the parent that mentioned Two Rivers cancelling a special ed class, I'm not happy about that. I think special needs kids deserve to go to a great school such as Two Rivers. The principal might want to re-think that decision.

The best school around. My daughter went to another school last year and it was the biggest mistake I could have made. Since she has been at Two Rivers I have had nothing but support from the administration and teaching staff. We had a rocky start but have smoothed out and feel really great about the school.
