Rep. Virginia Foxx to Visit Two Rivers Community School Tuesday

Local Congresswoman Plans Visit to High Country’s Only Public-Charter School

Boone, NC, October 19, 2016  On Tuesday, October 25th, Representative Virginia Foxx will visit Two Rivers Community School. The Congresswoman is expected to arrive early in the school day for a tour, introduction to students, and a conversation with the school’s Director about the successes and challenges of Two Rivers Community School.

This is the first time the school has ever had a member of Congress visit its campus. Dr. David Rizor, School Director, says,” We’re excited about the visit. Public-charter schools are often misunderstood in the challenges they face. It’s great when public officials invest energy in learning more about school choice and the benefits of public-charter schools.” The Two Rivers’ students and staff are thrilled for the Congresswoman’s visit. “It is a great opportunity to share student work and the unique learning experience facilitated by our staff,” adds Rizor.

Two Rivers Community School is the only public-charter school in the high country region of Virginia Foxx’s district. It is an NC Green School of Quality and has been recognized twice as a NC School of Excellence. The Congresswoman’s visit represents the achievements of Two Rivers’ students throughout the years and the wonderful vision of the school’s staff and Board of Directors.

Founded in 2005, Two Rivers Community School is a North Carolina Green School of Quality serving grades K-8. It is a tuition-free public-charter school located in Boone, NC under the leadership of a Board of Directors made up of local community members. The Two Rivers curriculum challenges students with dynamic learning experiences both in and out of the classroom. Academics are at the core of every student opportunity with the expectation that students grow in both character and intellect during their time at Two Rivers. This year the school’s enrollment is 175 students with space still available.
