About this school

Rivers is a special place with many exciting things happening right now. In January of 2015, we returned to our new facility; the largest single elementary school in Atlanta Public Schools. The original Rivers School was also the first public school in the city of Atlanta; built in 1917. Our diversity, community relationships and International Baccalaureate program make Rivers an incredible public school choice for families living in the southern part of the Buckhead community.
