My son is in Kindgergarten at Two Rivers, and he just loves it. So far our experience has been very positive. The principal is very involved and visible on campus which is refreshing to see.
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.
As is typical of the Natomas District, this school is a great facility with less-than-stellar academic programs.
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.
Very good school. High expectations of daily homework activity and parent involvement. Many student and parent events.
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.
To be honest, I heard nothing but good things about this school. Good facilities, teachers etc. And they also had a special education class that was above and beyond anything I've heard about. But recently, I heard that they dropped that class just so they could add another 3rd grade class. I guess they decided a class of special kids wasn't as important as a class of 3rd graders that, honestly, would have no trouble finding a nice school. Now these special kids with special needs are being moved to another school because Two Rivers wants nothing to do with them. I think this is the worst thing they could do for their community. And I'm unhappy with the 'leadership' in the school. I'm not sure who will read this. If it's parents, good. They'll see how this school feels. If it's the school, great. They'll see that people are unhappy. Just look at the rise in autism (one of the disabilities) in this country. Study up on autism. These are the kids they are giving up on. A good friend of mine has a son that was in that class. His son loved the teacher. He was with her for 3 years. Now he's being sent to another school. Another teacher. I'm sure this teacher will be great, but that's not the point. The point is that these kids get very close to this teacher. As do the parents. There were some tears when this was announced.
