Posted August 8, 2005

I have two daughters who go to Ashaway School. They have both loved it. They will be going into first and second grade this year and have very much enjoyed thier school experiance so far. The teachers are still eager to teach and have innovative and interesting ideas too keep the kids excited about learning. I have to battle with my girls when they are sick to keep them home! Parents are always welcome at the school for activities, even if it is just to sit in on a class. The principle is friendly and welcoming and always available for a conference if parents have a concern. Availabiliy of staff to parents for any question is amazing. Any child would be very lucky to start thier school years here. A great start for kids, and a comforting place for parents having a hard time with the speration from thier kids that school requires.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Rhode Island used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. GreatSchools ratings currently reflect 2013 test data; the ratings will be updated when the latest NECAP science data is made public and available in the summer of 2014. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Rhode Island. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
