About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Twin Rivers Charter School Reviews
I have three kids who go to Twin Rivers. They have gone since they were all in kindergarten, I have one in fourth, one in second and one in first. My son went to another school for half of his kindergarten year and moved over to Twin Rivers on his birthday and they let him go straight to the class while I was signing him up, and they were already having a little party for another kid.They included him right away and made him feel like he was a part of the class. All three of my children are high readers and are doing pretty good in all other areas. The staff is very understanding with my very hyper son and very sensitive daughter. I really do love the staff and the way they run the school.
I would like to update my childrens progress at Twin Rivers. This is their first year here, 7th gr. Both my children are making straight A's, such a difference from last year of b's, c's,d's, and f's. yes, they work hard, as they did last year, but the teachers are remarkable, and the school policies exceptional. I only wish I would of had them here from the 4th grade on, which is when we moved to CA. Best school in the area.
