Two Rivers Public Charter School Info Session on New Charles Young Location


From an invite to an upcoming info session on Two Rivers Public Charter School's new location:

Two Rivers Public Charter School is a preschool-8th grade school that is currently located just across Florida Avenue on 4th Street NE. We are opening up a new location, starting with preschool-1st grade next fall. TR participates in the DC Common Lottery. We have a few school options in the neighborhood - this is one more! Spread the word; it's an amazing school.

The new (2nd) location is at Charles E. Young Elementary School (Carver-Langston, 820 26th Street). The new location will only take pre-school through 1st grade next year, but will eventually have students from pre-k through 8th grade. The info session is at Rosedale Rec (1701 Gales Street).

Oh dear, that neighborhood is *dangerous*.

This is the textbook definition of taking away from the local public school. The local school is NEXT DOOR. So what will Browne be left with? Only the kids with autism and other disabilities/behavior problems that TR won't take? Some solution.

Well that's the NEA perspective, thanks.

In the past, hasn't Two Rivers been very selective in their choice of students?

A lot of bad information in these comments.

First, 8:06, my child has Autism and attends Two Rivers. They do amazing work with him and our lives are better because of it.

5:56, they are part of the regular lottery. To get in, a parent needs to put their child's name in the lottery and get luck. Two Rivers doesn't make any choice in who wins the lottery.

Attending this new school would be a great opportunity for any kid in this part of the city.

Good, get more kids out of that horrible DCPS and away from those useless union teachers who have helped produce the near 50% literacy rates in Wards 7 and 8.

The students left in the awful school will be those with the typical DC parents who don't give a shit and do nothing to raise their kids yet keep having more and more.

I thought this WaPo article I read this morning might be of interest.

My son was waitlisted at the original campus. At the time, I think the waitlist for PS3 was over 1000 kids.
