Four Rivers Charter Public School welcomes applications from students with disabilities and students who speak a language other than English. All students who wish to attend the school have an equal chance of getting in regardless of, and without consideration of, a need for special education services. English Language Learner supports and services are made available to all students who need them. If English is not your family’s primary language, please contact the school if you need enrollment information translated.

Four Rivers Charter Public School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, age, ancestry, athletic performance, special need, proficiency in the English language or a foreign language, or prior academic achievement.
