Great school! Parents could step up more and make this school even better! The Parents group tried hard this year to do a lot for the students but the lack of parent support caused issues. As far as the teaching staff... They are awesome! They take the time to know you and your child's needs! They work to help your child succeed!

My children have been going to Colt Andrews for 2 years now. The teachers that we have had show a genuine interest in children as individuals, honing in on their strengths and weaknesses, and helping focus their learning. I LOVE that the arts are integrated into all aspects of the curriculum. Parents are not only welcome at the school, but encouraged to be apart of the education process. Perhaps the best example of what a great school it is comes from my soon to be Kindergartener who can't WAIT to start school there in the fall!

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.
