Applying to Two Rivers

Two Rivers Magnet Middle School is one of 17 magnet schools managed by the Capitol Region Education Council (CREC) in Greater Hartford. CREC Schools provide students across the region with the chance to identify what fascinates them and pursue it through opportunities that they won't find anywhere else.

Students interested in attending CREC Schools apply through the Regional School Choice Office (RSCO). RSCO serves Hartford and suburban students who are interested in public school choice options in the Greater Hartford Region. Any student who resides in Connecticut can apply to our tuition-free schools by following a simple process.

How to Apply


Using a common RSCO application, applicants for CREC schools and other inter-district magnet, charter, and regional programs, can rank up to five school choice options. Students who are not offered a seat in the initial round of the placement process are placed on a waitlist. Families who are placed on a waitlist should accept their waitlist placement by the deadline to secure their waitlist position. Available seats are offered to students on the waitlist through the end of September each year. 

The application window for the 2021-2022 school year is open Tuesday, December 1, 2020 through Sunday, February 28, 2021. 




Priority may be given to students coming from another magnet school for a limited number of seats.
