When my middle daughter was in Kindergarten in the public schools, she already knew everything they were teaching and instead of challenging her to learn more, they had her help other students. When I found out about Four Rivers, I got her transferred as soon as possible. She has a steady 4.0 GPA and is continuously challenged in this school. She is now in 8th grade and is excited about going to 9th grade in this school, which is just beginning next year (2016/2017 school year)
Upon completion of 8th grade, students have 12-24 college credits and are bilingual. My daughter started in this school in 3rd grade and by the end of the year, she was fluently speaking Spanish. We are English-speaking at home. When she went into high school, she was taking senior classes. She had already learned most of what they teach in high school. The teachers and staff are awesome at this school. We are one big family at Four Rivers. There is zero tolerance for bullying and racism.
Not really sure what they are trying to accomplish. The values, principles and goals do not align. They have contradicted there self s one too many times. The curriculum for this school lacks interest and is not enough to keep a child engaged. I must say it is one big ball of confusion unless you are already fluent in Spanish and English.
My daugher transfered from a private school that we were paying to FRCS in the middle of her 1st grade year. FRCS welcomed her as a new family member. My daughter is now in 4th grade & loves to read. She also speaks, writes & reads Spanish. I thank God on a regular basis for FRCS. My son is a 1st grader this year at FRCS and loves school.
