I am more than pleased with our experience at West Glocester Elementary school. We moved half way through the school year and naturally our child was nervous to start at a new school. All the teachers and staff quickly put her at ease with their friendly and warm welcome. Her kindergarten teacher is amazing and she has learned so much already. I feel confident that the future education all of my children receive at West Gloucester elementary school will be exceptional.

My oldest will be at the new middle school this year and my youngest still has 2 years left here. My kids and I love this school. We moved here from another city and could not have hoped for a better school.

This is an EXCELLENT school. Both my children attend and have learned and continue to learn a great deal from their wonderful, dedicated teachers. I wouldn't want them attending school anywhere else.

All three of my children have attended West Glocester and I've found the teachers to be excellent, kind and receptive to parental involvement. I read the previous review, and, since my eldest is a special needs child, found it impossible not to reply. I doubt my child would have done as well in another school district with less devoted teachers. The level of parental concern and community involvement is terrific and there are some truly outstanding teachers here. I'm sure there are some teachers that are less than perfect, but overall, this is a great school.

I was not impressed with this school system. Both my children attended from kindergarten to fifth grade. Most of the teachers leave a lot to be desired. Very difficult to deal with and very pickey about things that don't matter. If you have a Special Ed Child, forget it. The system is very hard to deal with. If they can't get through to your child, it is always the child's fault. The whole Special Education Department, which deals with all Foster-Glocester is very difficult. They want to push your child out if they are borderline, even if they can't read.

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.
