Rivers Alternative Middle School

At the middle school level, our alternative program attempts to meet the students where they are at emotionally, socially and academically. Reconnecting students with learning involves building confidence, strengthening self-image and self-worth, building trust and holding them accountable for their successes as well as their failures. Through hands-on and community-based learning opportunities, we attempt to change our student’s perception of learning, intelligence and education as a whole. We strive to create and foster a small community of learners coming together to help themselves and each other succeed in school and in life.
