Education

Two Rivers School District serves the area. It operates two schools: Two Rivers Elementary School and Two Rivers High School.

Previously it was assigned to the Fourche Valley School, a K-12 school, operated by the Fourche Valley School District. On July 1, 2004, the Fourche Valley district merged into the Two Rivers district. The merged district continued to operate the Fourche Valley School until 2009, when the majority of the members of the district board voted to close it. Students were reassigned to Plainview-Rover Elementary School and Plainview-Rover High School. In 2010 the latter closed due to the opening of the consolidated Two Rivers High School, and the Plainview-Rover elementary consolidated into Two Rivers Elementary in 2012.
