Love this school. The teachers really support the kids and have teams that make sure all kids are challenged without any being left behind. If your child has medical needs, I'd pick another school. The school nurse has been known to make bad decisions , have a bad attitude with kids , has talked to parents about others student's conditions and talking to parents in a very condescending manner. It does not change how I feel about this school but if my child had a serious medical condition, it would.

The previous principal was absolutely hands down HORRID. The new one is better, but the school still needs LOTS of work.

My daughter is an 8th grader who came from one of the best school system in CT south windsor and she loves Two Rivers Magnet. The teachers are wonderful and her CMT scores are off the chart. My son just started this year and says it is the best school he's been to by far. I know every student is different and some parents have negative things to say when their kids don't like a school or they simple don't do well but my kids are good kids, focused social and love diversity. If the kids don't have that kind of package I can see them and the parents hating the school. This is a very nice school for the right student!!

Just as a hint of what a terrible school this is, if you write them a bad review they delete it. the other reviews also already said my words.

This is the WORST school in East Hartford. It doesn't even deserve one star. If you are thinking about sending your kid either here or public school, GO WITH PUBLIC SCHOOL. You will be so sorry if you send your kid here, and if they do I guarantee they will not be there very long. First off their way of teaching is terrible, if that's what you can even call it. There is just so many things wrong with this school, and let's not forget the constant fighting.

The way of teaching at this school is great!! Excellent !! The teachers really work with the students strong suits and encourages them while giving them the tools to excell and push forward. With that said the communication between the principle and parents needs A LOT!! of work. We parents are not the enemy - remember your students are our children!!!
