I would like to know all about the elementary schools in Three Rivers, any information is great, good or bad. I have a son who will be in the first grade this year, well in Louisiana (where we are at the moment he started his first grade August 14) so he is already in school here. I do know that they dont start until Sept. 8th up there, but have been looking and Hoppins is closest to where we will live, but then there is Andrews and I was wondering which qualities each have.

We should be moving soon, just waiting on the job hubby got to tell him when.

To be fair, she posted the first one two days ago. Compared to metro Detroit/SE MI, that corner of Michigan is sparsely populated, there probably aren't as many people familar with schools there as, say, A2 or Rochester Hills.

My apologies! I am guilty of non-observance, due to not having MY coffee yet when I posted! If no one with personal experience with these schools replies, you might try googling the schools to obtain their phone numbers, then calling them and asking some questions yourself. We're getting close to the time when admin/office people are back in the office, preparing for the start of school.

I raised my kids in Three Rivers Schools and now they are raising theirs in Three River Schools. Both Hoppin and Andrews are excellent, but if offered the choice I'd go with Andrews. It's right behind my son's home! Good Teachers.

Be glad to answer any questions you might have a bout TR.

My son attended Andrews and we had a great experience there. The teachers were very energetic and more than willing to come in early or stay late in order to meet with me if I had a concern. I don't have much personal experience with Hoppin, but have heard that it is also has a great teaching staff. I'm not sure how true this is, but I'm under the impression that Andrews places a little more emphasis on art while Hoppin places a little more emphasis on science.

I have also heard that Andrews is almost if not all the way filled to capacity because my sister has a son who is within walking distance to Andrews but has to take a bus to Norton Elementary due to overcrowding.

Hope this helps!
