Our Approach to Learning
Adventures in Academics
At Two Rivers, our teachers believe in taking learning 'beyond the book.' Our students get a strong foundation in the classroom while going beyond a traditional setting by benefiting from projects and experiences that bring their learning to a higher level. Students engage in integrated projects that apply learning from multiple subject areas and culminate with in an impressive high quality product or public presentation. In addition to these in-depth experiences, students are required to engage in and reflect on their own learning in student led conferences where they share learning samples and experiences with their parents. Learning is an exciting adventure and we strive to make every day an engaging experience for all students.
Adventures in the Community
Our local community is Two Rivers’ greatest resource. The community sets the stage for learning expeditions and is at the center of our service projects. Students learn how to interact with and utilize community resources making the connection an integral part of the Two Rivers’ experience.
Adventures in the Natural World
At Two Rivers students are engaged in the outdoors learning from a young age the value of our mountains and rivers. Every student participates in our Mountain Adventure Program, which is a partnership with Buffalo Cove Education Center, a Garden Program, Adventure Fitness, and many service projects focused on stewarding and learning about our green-spaces and waterways.
