Three Rivers Charter School Ratings & Reviews

June 11, 2018 Submitted by a parent
We have no regrets sending our daughter to Three River and feel that is was an overall satisfactory experience, but we've decided one year is enough. What we admired:The IP project: We couldn't believe how much our daughter and the other students accomplished! It was a true display of creativity and intellect.The new school is beautiful and we can clearly see the effort that went into it.The PE program is unique and gives students a chance to explore various types of sports.The Outdoor School program was stellar, providing our daughter the chance to socialize, learn, and enjoy nature.Qualities that were less satisfying:She was expected to conform precisely to her teachers instruction without any leg room: Our daughter had a very difficult time adjusting to the needs of her teachers and they had difficulty meeting her half way. We were continuously told that she had to catch up with Three Rivers "high standard of education". As a student beginning at Three Rivers in the 6th grade (rather than 4th grade), our daughter felt left out and unqualified to fit the needs of her teachers and peers. She went from being a straight A student and confident in her abilities to a C-grade students with lack of confidence. Her teachers didn't seem to acknowledge that she was coming from a different educational background and was given the "our way or the highway" approach.We were surprised with Three River's cluster testing strategy of which several weeks went by without a test and then numerous tests were given in one week. The grading system is, in our opinion, excessively critical and discouraging. There were nights that our daughter spent 2-3 hour on average to study for a test but still received lower grades than we all expected. Sending her 3x a week to Mathnasium and Kumon helped, but her grades were still low. Between tutoring and studying, our daughter rarely had time to be a child of 11 and enjoy herself. We appreciate the fact that her teachers took the time out of their busy schedule to arrange a meeting with us after expressing our concern. Yet the meeting started with asking our daughter "What do you think the problem is?" Our daughter left feeling as if she was reprimanded and without tangible guidance.Three Rivers does indeed hold a higher standard of education, but it is not for everyone.

The school is in general excellent. I've interacted with both the administration and the staff and they seem honest and have managed to create an environment that promotes academic excellence and community feeling. Their PT conferences are also much superior to what one typically sees in public schools. My concerns with the school are more mostly long-term:a) Do they have a good succession plan for the 2 founders?b) How closely are they looking at the changing landscape in terms of technology, society and the economy and how actively are they thinking about refining both curriculum and teaching methodology to prepare the kids for the future of 2030 (not 2008). I don't have specific complaints - just trying to highlight that what may have made this a great school in the past may not keep it at that place in the future. Probably, more discussions around this need to happen around the 3rcs community to leverage our collective pool of knowledge and experience.c) How much of individual attention can the kids get? How does the school reconcile and address the needs of both over-achievers and under-achievers in various areas?d) Even outside sports and music, the number of programs that the school engages with are relatively limited (Scripps spelling bee, FLL, OBOB, etc.). This may mean reduced number of opportunities for kids to shine outside academics as an individual or as part of a team, with only a smaller cross-section of kids managing to express their extra-curricular interests.- parent

The “no stars” review of Three Rivers Charter School could have been written by me, verbatim. One star goes to the wonderful families and students that we met at the school. The good reviews posted on this site are likely from parents and students who started in fourth grade. My daughter entered in sixth grade and was greeted with criticism and negativity from the teachers. Any transition is difficult, but the teachers did not explain the routines unique to this school. Any questions from us or requests for clarification resulted in a lecture on “self-advocacy.” We encourage self-advocacy appropriate for the age of our children. When my daughter would ask questions, the teachers responded with an abrupt “NO” or vague reply. We plodded along for months and tried to resolve our concerns several times with the teachers and the administration (as suggested in a previous post by a teacher), but nothing changed. In fact, the attitude toward my daughter became even more toxic. I attempted to explain to the teacher and administration that my daughter is very sensitive and feeling a positive connection could go a long way for her. Just a few kind, encouraging words - not over the top praise. Then, the teachers starting giving her consistently low grades (Ds and Fs) that made no sense. Every polite inquiry led to more derogatory comments towards my daughter. My child has tested into the TAG program and gets high scores on OAKS testing and MAPs testing. She has great potential and motivation to work hard. I have had kids in school for 13 years and have never experienced anything this disrespectful. I expect my kids to work hard in school, but I also expect kind and fair treatment from the teachers and administrators. My daughter voiced, “My teachers think I’m a waste of time.” The environment was not conducive to learning. I tried to communicate with the teachers and administration, but they were not interested in partnering with me or taking any responsibility in making the situation better. My daughter also felt that there was distinct favoritism towards some students. If you start in fourth grade, then there is a better chance of having a good experience that this school. My son went to one of the large public middle schools, and we had a much better experience there with teachers, administration and communication.

(continue on previous review) On character building, social and leadership, 3rcs in general does a good job. Students will have daily opportunities to speak in front of the whole school. And a lot, if not most of them work on a leadership program to improve on their skills on discussion, decision making, event organization, public speech and so on. My observation is middle school age kids almost universally demonstrate such skills. EC is not much. There is a successful Robotics program that won trophies in state. Sports related, students have to get those from elsewhere.

Read between the lines: the majority of EVERYthing said below is true, tempered to some degree. The good: great school; high academic standards; great degree of student accountability. The bad: constant teacher turnover; lack of communication; administration can be defensive. The mediocre: PE, Art, Music, etc.,--you know it's not there when you start; get it somewhere else. Bottom line: no place is perfect and consider your options: 3RCS is WAY better than anything else West Linn has to offer.
