"Four Rivers is not just a school. It is an entire environment with its own social and cultural system, one which both more accurately fits the world we live in and presents goals for improving the world we live in: it is educating not just the child's mind but helping children to learn how to behave, problem solve, indeed, how to LEARN in positive ways: to respect one another, to show warmth and human compassion to every other human being."
Four Rivers Charter Public School is dedicated to educating young people for lives of learning and service.
'The school offers a rigorous college preparatory program aligned with the Massachusetts curriculum frameworks and an emphasis on character development for moral and social responsibility.
Three central themes -– nature, technology and community -- guide teaching and learning at the school, engaging students and teachers in a fundamental question of our times: How do we find the healthy, sustainable interrelationship of the natural world, technology in its many forms, and the human community? The school works closely with parents and seeks both to serve and to learn from the many resources of Franklin County.
